Well, the summer is over and now we set our sights on the fall season.

This of course is our busiest season of the year. We have a full schedule taking us through the holidays this year. The majority of our fundraising activities have been focused on the Circle of Flags project which has broken ground and will be completed for our November dedication ceremony.

We have so many exciting events planned this fall. Please do come out and share some good times with us. Thanks again to our members and friends who make it all happen for us.
