Style Show Report: Mary & Joyce would like thank everyone who helped with the Style Show whether it was helping in being a chair person, helping to setup and take down, or attended the show. We needed you all to make the event amazing. If you couldn’t attend you missed a fabulous show and a great time was had by all.

A special THANK YOU to Laurie, General Manager at Culver’s and her caring staff for their help and allowing us this great opportunity to raise money to help our community!
