The Feed My Starving Children event at Bielenberg Sports Complex is drawing near. We need to let organizers know how many we are contributing. This is a whole family event so include your siblings, uncles and grandparents in your RSVP. And remember to give regrets if you're unable to attend so we don't have to call you at home, during dinner or in the middle of your favorite crime drama, game show, or sitcom. Details for the event are on the calendar entry.
