Tri Valley Key Club

Two Tri-Valley Key Club members, Lauren and Payton, and their high school faculty advisor Pam Stone were our guests.  They provided us with information concerning fundraising projects they have worked on to help support March of Dimes and Relay for Life.  Their Relay effort raised over $27,000!  They also donated turkeys last Thanksgiving to Home Sweet Home Ministries. Since the advisor is retiring, Andrea Raycraft provided her with a Niepagan Mother's Day Flower gift certificate on behalf of our Club to express our appreciation for all the work she has done for this Key Club over the years. Adrienne West will be stepping in as the new advisor.
