Bring those Silent Auction Items to meeting tonight at Drizzy's

Use that Christmas cheer to commit to creating a complete basket for the Chili Challenge.  Make a basket of something you love.

A baking basket, a fishing basket, dining out basket, a family night of games and fun or movies and popcorn...  I know we have some very creative people out there.

If 25 of you commit to donating at least one complete basket, that would be about 20% of the Silent Auction!!!

Some of you, Cindy and Gary Ballew, bring multiple baskets.  It is sooooooo appreciated.

If you are unable to create your own, please bring items to fill in or better yet, be the center piece of a basket.

Hope to see you tonight!!!  Also the committee can provide basket pick up!!!  Just let us know.

The money earned really helps the HD Youth Center and the Community Health Free Clinic.  Both provide valuable services locally!!!!

Happy Holidays, wishing you all the best the season has to offer.
