This year we will be announcing the Volunteer of the Year and Educator of the Year awards along with having a silent and live auction, and music performed by Brian Congdon. We will be selling tickets in advance at $20 and at the door for $25. The proceeds go towards this years education scholarship awards.


-You will be able to set up from 2-4:30pm

-A four, six or eight foot table, table cloth and two chairs will be provided for each business to set up their specialty dish.
