Other fundraisers are also being planned for the near future with the possibility of a Poker Run and activity at Jimmie and Sook’s – more to come on these.

This is one way the Dayton Family can help pay back the support from the community that they received during Marci’s illness.  If it had not been for the community they would not have had the resources that they did to spend the time with her during her illness.  It truly showed us how wonderful it is to live where we do!
