Hi all, if you haven't already purchased your Slide the City tickets, happening in Cookeville on 7/3, please do so using the code; SPLASH. By using that code a portion of the ticket prices goes to the Heart of the City Playground fund, and you get them that much closer to their building funds goal. Thank you! ...

Ladies please join us at our next meeting on July 16, and maybe you too will get the chance to play with a cute little goat the next time we go to a conference. Thanks Heifer International. ...

So proud of all the hard work our own Diane Glasgow and the rest of our club put into us earning Silver Level Status in funding Shot@Life!! ...
