We held our first ever rummage and vendor fair in July. It turned out to be a great fundraiser and event. We even had a few special entrepreneurs show up to sell their wares.
Many local vendors showed up to showcase their products and services. Thanks to all who joined us and helped make the day a success.
Many goodies from pies to jam were offered at the bake sale. Once again, we could not realize success without the tireless support from our volunteers. You ROCK!
