What’s so great about Feb. 2, 2020? Hint: it’s got nothing to do with a groundhog. It’s the date of our annual Service Auction! As you prepare for the holidays, don’t forget to give some thought to what you might like to donate, or how you might want to participate. It’s a fun and fabulous time, and there’s something for everyone! Donation forms and more information will be coming in early January.
