Another great event!!! A huge THANKS to everyone who helped prepare the food, crafts and facility and to those who came to enjoy the meal. We sold over 300 meals!! Our apologies to those who came towards the end of the night and didn’t get to enjoy the full meal and to the few we had to turn away after the food was gone.
