Fiesta Fundraiser July 21, 2017
If you weren't able to attend the Fiesta Fundraiser, you missed a fantastic event!
We had a packed house, and good food, good friends, and a good time was had by all!
A special thanks goes to all of the ladies on our food and events committee, who once again outdid themselves - even down to hand delivering the leftover food to families in need in our community.
For those of you who couldn't make it, see the handout from Dr. Roebuck that has some very valuable information on gerrymandering. Please feel free to share with others.
