Please Save the Date…Friday, November 17, 2017 from 4-6 pm for the Monte Belo Charity Bake Sale to benefit Folsco.
Please think about what you may like to contribute…savory food (very well received last time), baked goods, and drinks (summer is almost upon us!). We are also collecting childrens and adult books for the book sale with all proceeds to Folsco. It’s a fun afternoon and your kids can partake in the baking and/or selling of the treats!
