Each member is required to serve at least 20 hours of community service.  Our membership acquired over 500 hours this year.  These activity hours were gained during   two blood drives,  working at and collecting for the Toys for Tots/Gifts for Teen’s local program during the holiday season, raising money for the Smith-Evans family through a series of bake sales, distributing and packaging food at the local food pantry, and hosting our annual soup dinner.

Next year’s officers were introduced and are: President Nick Bradford, Vice President Josh Briggs, Secretary Zach Yonkers and Treasurer Kieren O’Connor.
