If you weren’t at the Kids Klub Fall Festival Fund-raiser at the Elks Saturday night you missed a great time. The food – all made by Nancy Thompson – was top-notch. The variety show was fun and the costumes were great. I had the honor of performing my first-ever dance, Thriller, with a great group of ladies of all ages. Even though I am not a dancer they still let me be in the club and it was a lot of fun! Thanks to Wendy Lindsley for organizing the show. And a big thanks to everyone else who helped make the night a success.
