Hello everyone!  Never let it be said that the shopping and merchandising staff of the Society is taking a rest.  As fond memories of Harvest Fest and Country Store fade into next year, your intrepid volunteers have gearing up for the October Shop ‘til You Drop.  The volunteers spent all day today (Friday October 24) setting up our booths for your shopping pleasure.

It’s just before Halloween and Thanksgiving so we will have items at Shop just for these festive days.  Come out and be a part of Shop at Hara Arena.

Saturday, October 25, 2014 from 9am-5pm
Sunday, October 26, 2014 from 10am-4pm

We’d love to see you there and visit with you. Come on out and support this local event.
