The play performance "The Troll's and the Land of Fae" was a great success. With 79 children trying out for the production the performances were split into two shows. Thanks to all the children for trying out and a job well done and also to the parents and businesses for their generous donations and for helping make this all possible.  Winners of the raffle were Luke Enneking winning the Family Fun Pack, Jeff Martin winning the Taking Care of You Pack, and Andrea Brannan winning the Just For You Pack.  You can see a larger version of the top photo by clicking on it.
