The port a pit fund raiser went well! We raised well over $800.00 I will post the total on the website when I get all of the receipts and withdraws, and deposits totaled. I would like to thank everyone who helped with the port a pit! Mr. and Mrs. Littlefield, Mrs. King, Mrs. Williams, Mr. and Mrs. Boatright, and Mr. Carter did much work helping and we are very grateful! Thanks for all you do!!!

The price of our wrestling camps will depend on how well we do at the poker tournament. If we can raise about $3500.00 with the tournament we will be able to send kids for free. If we don't make that much we will assess our account and see what the cost will be when split among the guys that will be going.

The Krispy Kreme Fundraiser is canceled :( We don't have enough orders placed at this time to meet the minimum required purchase (300 boxes). Any money collected needs to be returned as soon as possible.
