Watsons Corners Community Dinner a HUGE Success!!

At the beginning of the March break we had our amazingly successful Watsons Corners community dinner, which raised close to $1200 for Maple Grove School. A big thank-you to everyone who was able to assist in any manner. An enormous THANK-YOU! to Krista Thomas and her family, and all of the folks on the Watsons Corners community hall committee. Without Krista & the commitment of the W.C. crew this fundraiser simply would not have happened.
