What's Happening

Gentle Reminder - Buy Those


If you haven’t already purchased your raffle tickets that were sent home to you, time is running out!

This is our biggest fundraiser of the year, and you don’t want to be left out!

The first prize is a really good one this year. It is a two night stay at the Capercaille Cottage in Cambria. This nice cottage sleeps as many as 6 and is nestled in the pine forest of Cambria. What a great family get away vacation to the coast it would provide. What a great Christmas present!

Also, our 2nd prize is $100 cash.

The drawing will be during the Installation Dinner on December 7.
