This year’s Casino Night at the Barn was designed to raise funds to benefit the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life. We had tables for blackjack, craps, roulette, and poker manned by professional croupiers. Everyone who attended had a great time, but unfortunately due to a low turnout, we were barely able to over expenses. Next year we’ll do better in this regard.


Our annual BBQ Night was a great success. We tried something different which was to ask guys to bring something to throw on the grille. There was a large variety and quantity of food which was enjoyed by all. Special thanks goes out to those who helped with the organization, cooking, and cleanup.
