  • Current Mission and Goals: While still dedicated to our original focus on serving the children of the community, our outlook has broadened to include seniors and international children in need.

We hope we have sponsored an activity in which your child has participated, or helped one of your senior
neighbors who needed assistance, or supported the academic award that your child achieved.
Perhaps we even served your dinner at our Hometown Days Barbeque.

We’d love for you to join us and become part of our history.
