I big thank to all who helped at the POPS concert! It was a great success!!

Thank you for soliciting donations, making baskets, and generously giving of yourself (raffle baskets, silent auction items, food, pop, water, supplies and time!!)

It takes a group effort to make the night so successful!

Thank you to the committee chairs, Kelly and Laura, for coordinating donations and food for the evening!!

We will have a breakdown of the night at Monday's meeting: preliminary numbers are approximately $5961.99.

Comparison to years passed.....2017 - $5100, 2016 - $4400.

It is through the generosity and support of our parents that this event was so successful.
