We are still working on the Pig Eye Days Festival. It is going to be November 3-4. This is to raise money for a new roof on the gym. We will be renting out spaces for Arts and Crafts. We plan on having a huge affair. Plan on coming and participating.

We will have lots of prizes and events that will have cash prizes. We hope to have the flyers out soon. We want everyone to think about dressing like the old days. Lets make this a great event and maybe something we can do each year. If you do something that can be of interest call and let us hear about it.
