First up The HRR invited us to come to there fund raising event for CHKD, called the change bandit. We show go to the parking garage to change so you would be wise to wear most of your costume. This is Dec 10th. They ask that people put donate as much as they can spare, you don't have to break the bank. The is a joint event to raise money for the CHKD. They do some fantastic work with these kids and they need all the support we can give them. The TA Holloween party ... is CANCELED. No participation for what date to make it or were. The TA Christmas party can only be either December 10th or the 17th Pleas post intentions of attending and which day is conducive to our schedules. It will be held at Dawns house.
