A very big thank-you!!

Jeanne Howell would like to express her thanks to all who helped with and supported the craft fair. It simply cannot happen without everyone’s help and support. This year we raised just over $3400 which will be divided equally between the 11th Hour Pet Rescue and Sarah’s Fight for HOPE Foundation. A special thanks to new contributors to the fair this year as something new and different is always being sought! Also a big thanks to the gals from our Monday morning craft group and to God for blessing us so richly once again.
