T & E Care Fall Fest...
Plans are already underway to begin to organize this year's Fall Fest.  We are excited with our "western" theme this year.  Helping to emphasize this theme will be a great band - 
Wheelhouse.  They play Country/Americana music.  Check them out Link
Additionally - Cindy Brauer, from our very own Mojo Fitness, will come and teach a little line dancing to all interested participants.  For those of you who know Cindy - her high energy and enthusiasm is contagious!  This is a not-to-miss event!

We have a great committee in place to organize the event, but more folks are always welcome!
