Valentine's Dinner and Live Music Fundraiser for our Chiloquin Fire and Rescue....was a GREAT SUCCESS!
Dinner was a success and was even more successful then this Art Director, Judy
Pate, could have imagined. Our goal was 100 people and we served up 100 plates,
which includes complimentary meals, in a beautiful and romantic atmosphere
filled with decorations.
