Thanks to generous donations, memberships and memorials, the council, over the years, has been able to purchase televisions, pianos, patio furniture and a patio awning, as well as providing entertainment, including gifted performers from the Shandelee Music Festival.

All attending were happy to celebrate the council’s gift this holiday season.
