The theme of this year’s fundraiser will be Barnyard Hoedown! There will be plenty of activities for adults and children. There will be a live band, and line dancing throughout the evening. From 5:00 pm until the sun goes down there will be pony rides, and a petting zoo. After the sun sets, the evening will start to heat up with karaoke, and mechanical bull riding! For the kiddo’s there will be a “Life on the Farm” tent where they can learn how to pick apples, milk a cow and lasso a calf. There will also be balloon animals, bobbing for apples, face painting and Jonathan the Juggler. This will be a potluck event. However, hotdogs and hamburgers will be available for everyone.
