Current needs are soups and items for Thanksgiving such as stuffing mix, instant or quick potatoes and cranberries.  When shopping, please consider adding an additional item for the pantry.  Thank you!

The sound system was repaired and seems to be operational, so the bill from DRS Sound can be paid.
