A "Sweet" Night

We hope you all had the most fun and sweetest family game night! Many thanks to Tina Thorn and Carie Alley for getting creative and planning such an incredible fall family event for us all to enjoy. Special shout to all of our volunteers who helped hand out game night kits and especially to Farmington Kroger Bakery for the individual cookie decorating kits, and to Mellow Mushroom Germantown & Yippie Trippie & The Porkstars for preparing over 60 custom call ahead orders for pickup at the school!

This really was a SWEET night and we are so thankful for our community!
