Salvation Army Bell Ringing Update



Salvation Army


Thanks to all the volunteers who signed up

for ringing the bell.  The weather wasn't the best,

so two locations needed to be cancelled. 

However, the club stepped up and donated

generously at our Wednesday, lunch meeting

and raised $1356.25! 

Thank you for your generosity!


Toy Drive Photos


Thank you to everyone who purchased, collected,

sorted, and delivered toys and gifts

for our Annual Toy Drive.

Your generosity and efforts

are very much appreciated.

A special thank you to Linda Cooke

for her organization of everything!
