|Mardi Gras a roaring success!|
The Adult social committee are excited to report that the net proceeds from the event was $36,823! This surpasses our goal by more than $5,000! The theme of this year's adult social rang true "old friends, new friends...Connecting makes a difference". You will soon see this money makes a difference, starting with the water refill stations. Thanks to everyone who donated their time, talent and money to make all of this happen!
