There are still plenty of names on the angel tree at the elementary. If you are willing to sponsor a child by taking a name and providing some gifts so they will have a Christmas, please come by the elementary and choose as many names as you feel led to take. Thank you for your generosity at this time of year. So many children are in need.
Everyone come out and support the Class of 2020 while letting your little ones meet the GRINCH!
There will be a Pancake breakfast at the High School Cafeteria Saturday morning 7:00 am to 10:00 a.m. Bring your appetite and bring your little ones so they can have BREAKFAST WITH THE GRINCH!
Proceeds support Project Grad for the Class of 2020.
