The fireworks were a success last year and we almost broke even. Thanks to Jack and Jackie Seatter for taking responsibility for this event and to everyone else who assisted.

The Bake Sale was also successful and, as usual, made a nice profit. Thanks to everyone who helped out this year and a special thanks to everyone who contributed baked goods.

The Pig Roast was also successful and the dinner was sold out again. Thanks to everyone who assisted with this event.
