The holidays are upon us. Both the Oktoberfest and
the Saturday Night Dance were terrific! If you

Please come out and join us for our many upcoming
events in November and December. Please
remember to keep our troops in your thoughts and
prayers and remember to thank our veterans.

for side items and helpers. I’m going to need a lot
of help with this as we will have about 50 young

to help.
