2023 Was Our Year of Jubilee

​     Our 75th Jubilee was marked by one year of activities from October 2022 through October 2023, culminating in a Gala Dinner-Dance on October 21, 2023, featuring keynote speaker, Dr. Belle S. Wheelan, a presentation about scholarship recipients, exhibits, live music by The Original Moonlighters, catering by Chef Jazz, and so much more.


     With tremendous support from the community, we prepared a souvenir booklet for the banquet.  In appreciation to our business patrons, we are providing advertising in our marketing media through 2025, and asking all to please patronize them.
