We have been working hard to redesign our website.  We hope that the simpler set up makes it easier for you find the information that you need.

As we move into the year we are planning some old favorites: Jeans Day will be January 25 (or date of your choosing) (see info here) and Decorated Table is May 9th (see info here). There will be surprises and we know one thing is for sure, we will be here to serve those in need and that's what it is all about.
