Thanks for Helping!

Lion member Rich Hughes presents a check to the Girl Scout Troop 152 for their help with our Holiday Flag Program last year. They got involved very late in the process, but we hope they can get on board at the start this year. We will monitor their participation level and pay them accordingly. Thanks for helping!
