Up Next … CV Weekly Mixer and More

Saturday, July 23 … what an evening! Whether it was getting ready for tri tip or pulled pork slider barbeque in the beautiful St. Luke’s of the Mountains Church courtyard or the prospect of winning some money playing bingo inside Sadler Hall, over 100 enthusiasts showed up and thoroughly enjoyed the activities. Kudos to Stephen Mack and the St. Luke’s of the Mountains Church staff, to our game sponsors, and a huge “thank you” to the dedicated and supportive veterans from American Legion Post 288 and VFW Post 1614 for making this evening a success.
