Sincere thanks to the volunteers, without whom there would be only chaos, in no special order: Sherry Bolca, Tami Brown, Leslie Oksner, Mickey Oksner, Zee Zilonka, Pat Sullivan, Jerry Habeck, Fred Paxton, Cary Hobbs, Marianne Wicks, Char Lovelass and those unmentioned who made the check-in and launch of the “shotgun” a well oiled operation.
Be sure to attend the upcoming Holiday dinner party and frolicking that will be the final gathering of the Friends for this year. Always a fun event.
Our 2017 Holiday Party is quickly approaching on Friday evening, December 8th. We are returning to the Soldier Hollow Day Lodge to party from 6:00 to 9:00 pm.
