The Trustees appreciate your help - hope to see you there!


BBQ / Sweet Shop 
Weekend Coming Soon!

The big weekend is October 6 & 7 and LOTS of help is needed!

And the Men will need help beginning about Wednesday of that week with the hams, Brunswick stew, tent set-up, etc.

Please consider where you can help, then check the boxes on the back of the Connect Cards in your Sunday bulletins. Thank you!
