HOLIDAY WREATH FUNDRAISER UPDATE

Tuesday, November 8, 2016  Holiday Wreath Fundraiser Update. We first want to thank so many of you for supporting our Holiday Wreath fundraiser for many years. Residents in our local may be wondering why they have not received an order form this year. Since the fundraiser's inception we have partnered with the operator of the Don Guanella property's tree and wreath sales. Due to the sale of the Don Guanella property our partner will no longer be able to sell trees and wreaths there anymore. We unfortunately will not be selling wreaths this year, but plan to be up and running again next year. Thanks for your support!
