Potluck Supper

Posted on October 23, 2017 under: Announcements

At our first meeting with the new Council, we had a request to host a pot luck supper for the community to bring everyone together after the horrific week we’ve had, to enjoy some fellowship and give thanks to all that worked so tirelessly. Council has set Tuesday October 24th 6:00 pm in the community hall for a potluck supper. This is a chance to share your experiences, your fears, and lessons learned with one and other, and move forward as a community. Please spread the word with those that you see. This is an opportunity to discuss ways in which we might be able to help some of our neighbors who have lost so much.
