VAC program – December 31st is the last day to get your final events in for the year. We have one event on December 2nd and will have a Christmas tree recycling event on December 30th from 8am – 2:30 pm. If you have any ideas for a charitable event you would like to volunteer for, reach out to the Hall to create an event for the membership to participate in.
