Just to further let any potential visitors know we will not have our December meeting in-person at Theodore’s. We will be having our meeting virtually due to the COVID-19 uptick in cases in the counties that we live and serve in.
We hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and New Year and we will try to meet in January depending on the situation at hand.

Today is Veteran’s Day! Please take the time to thank a Veteran for their work and sacrifice. Please take the time to thank family members of Veterans that have served our Country. Without their sacrifice and dedication we would not have the Freedoms that we enjoy today. Lastly, don’t forget to pray for our currently serving Armed Forces personnel!
We Salute you Veterans and currently serving personnel!
