Club suppers are going strong, last month between the meeting and supper we raised $780 for The Fonda-Fultonville Little League that had their concession stand broken into and had a loss in the thousands. Thank you PTRC members that came through and helped. We have started our "toys for Kids" program for Christmas already! Bring in a new unwrapped toy and we will put your name in a hat to win a jacket or sweatshirt! We are also going to provide a family or families in need a holiday dinner!
