As we are getting ready up for the Pumpkin Trail where we will partner with the Nevada National Guard Family Services to host this kids event and food bank donation drive we would like to ask everyone if the can donate a bag of candy and one 2-Litter of soda (not diet) for the event.  The candy will be used to give out to the kids and the soda will be used during the 2-litter soda ring toss.

Barb and I have already sorted and organized all the toys and prizes for the event and all we need now are volunteers, candy and 2-litters of soda.  The event will be Friday, October 24th from 6:00 pm to 8: pm and is opened to all.

All we ask is that people bring one no perishable food item that will be collected and donated to the food back the following week.

Please bring your candy and soda donation to the dinner at Las Mas this Sunday or you can drop it off at the Armory between the hours of 8 to 4 Tuesday through Friday.

Thanks Jessica Smith
