Pot luck. The pot luck will be a laid back affair, bring something that you’d like to eat, keep it simple… Don’t cook? Don’t have time to make something? Who cares? Just come. The best thing to bring is yourself.

Toys for Tots. As part of our charitable organization mission, we will be starting to collect money for Toys for Tots during this and the December dances. I’ll be passing the hat around and give what you can. Julie will head to the mall and buy toys to donate.
