A big thank you to all who enjoyed and supported the weekend meals and parties. We had a full house at the spaghetti dinner at Chillas Hall, the Valentine dinner at the Legion, the pancake breakfast at the boat club, the February Birthday Bash at the Legion and the covered dish at Chillas Hall. Hip hip hooray
