Our food seemed to agree with everyone of all ages tonight.

The menu gets a thumbs up from all age groups tonight. We love seeing these happy faces on Wednesday nights.

Our hard working volunteers are a dedicated bunch.  These 2 keep the drinks filled up, which isn't an easy job.  Each week we go through 500 half-pints of milk, 12 gallons or more of lemonade, 12 gallons of water, and 6 gallons of iced tea.
