What We Do
“We are pleased with the community events we’ve established over the last few years and hope to continue to build upon them. Our goal now is to develop greater partnerships within the community to help us take on the additional aspect of environmental stewardship, assist local charitable organizations, and create positive community activities and traditions that can be passed on for generations to come.”
