Trails and Rails outdid themselves once again, giving us a fun musical tour back into the past of the Old West. Thanks again to Paula and Walt for performing for us.
We also presented two charities with grants. One check to Fern St. Circus whom most of you will recall gave us a fantastic performance this past Summer. They received a $1,500 check to help them in their wonderful cause. For more information, their website is www.fernstreetcircus.com. And, we awarded $2,000 to the La Jolla Christmas Parade. The Parade is on December 4th, this year, and you can find all the details on their website: www.ljparade.com.
