Sometime in 2011 when we get an open day on a weekend we will "Call in the Hogs" to collect the change that you have saved for Al Kaly. This means we will have a party with great food and fellowship to celebrate Calling in the Hogs. J.D. Potter will roast a pig, and other food, for the event and it will be a great time! If you bring your piggy bank, full of money to the dinner there is no charge for the meal, one bank would equal one meal. Those attending without a bank will be charged a minimal donation.

1/15/2010 - The 85th East-West Shrine Game is coming!  

The East-West Shrine Game is the oldest and one of the most respected of the post-season collegiate bowl games. Since 1925, the game has been known for the quality of the players and coaches, as well as for the excitement of great college football action.

But that's not what makes it "Football's Finest Hour." What makes the East-West Game so special is its true purpose — helping to support Shriners Hospitals for Children.

Every year since 1925, the East-West Game has been played to raise funds for Shriners Hospitals for Children and to raise awareness about the expert orthopaedic, burn, spinal cord injury rehabilitation, and cleft lip and palate care, available at no charge to patients and families, through the 22 Shriners Hospitals for Children.
