No-Practice Christmas Pageant and Chili Lunch, Sunday December 21
“It’s December, it’s cold in Wisconsin, and chili is always a great option - very popular with the people here,” Gregg Krattiger said. “It’s a good staple fundraiser for us and an extra thing we can do during the holiday season to bring family and friends together. Every time we do a meal, it’s always a popular event.”
