What's Happening

Our potluck dinner and general meeting was a great success! We had a good turnout. The food was excellent! It was the best dinner you could even imagine. The entertainment was fantastic with Larry Holochwost singing some great cowboy ballads. Diane and Ron put on an auction for us; fun was had by all. The bidding was competitive at times, and we made some money for the new roof. Hope to see you next August for our next great Annual Pot Luck Dinner meeting. Thanks!
