Our community continues to come together to raise funds & support for the Flick & Stone children, who recently lost their parents in a senseless act of violence.  Attending these events is not only an opportunity to contribute to the financial security of these young people, but also to give all of us a chance to come together, to connect & to support one another as we recover.  It’s also way for us to express through conversation, music & breaking bread, just how resilient we are as a community & how hopeful we are for the future.  Please, join in one — or more — of the events below!
