Thank you!

Thanks to everyone who attended our fabulous Oktoberfest Fundraising event!  The evening raised more than $2,500 for the Family Centre - much-needed money that will stay in our community and help support local families!

Congratulations to Julie Dodds, the lucky winner of the 50/50 draw and to all the people who got great deals at our incredible silent auction.  Huge thanks go to all of the many companies and individuals who donated items for the silent auction, and thanks too to the Legion for hosting us.
