Happy New Year! Our January menu will be chili. Please bring chili, whatever you like with your chili (cheese, fritos, cornbread, sour cream, etc) and/or desert. If anyone can stay and help with clean - up please do. We need as many people as we can get to do this. If we have many hands it will go quick. Thank you.
