This is a huge community event and a wonderful experience for the children. Students fifth grade and above, please.

Please contact Mrs. Winch  if you are interested in Helping to End Hunger!  I will get a permission slip to you and register your student and/or family.
Also happening on Saturday, October 7, 2017, is the Birmingham Green Service Opportunity for Leo Club.
