For the past few years, Representative Huggins and I have enjoyed having local churches host this event for our community. Starting first at Riverland Hills Baptist (2006), St. Andrews Presbyterian (2007), Gateway Baptist (2008), and now this year at St. Mary’s Episcopal Church !

With the economy being in the state it is and with so much uncertainty in everyone’s lives, we wanted to make this year’s event easier than ever for you to attend!

Thanks to the continued support of our sponsors and local business leaders, this year’s event will be FREE to the public! (Please RSVP before 9/21 to Elizabeth Donehue at

We hope to see you there!
