Formerly known as "The Trough", now it's the "Ice Cream Social".

We have a lot of new things planned and coming up. Be at the meeting to learn about all the fun activities. Remember that the meeting is on Thursday, 7:30pm, June 24 th at Emanuel Lutheran Church (on Palm, north of Sonora High School), the same place the downhill meeting was held.
