Plans are Heating up for All Aboard
We're a little over one month away from an evening of community to benefit all five campuses of SMCS. You're invited to ALL ABOARD, held Saturday October 15, on the campus of St. Mary Catholic Middle School. This year ALL ABOARD will feature a tasty tailgate meal from Parker Johns, live entertainment from Jedidiah Tuyls and Pat Pedersen, outdoor games, silent auction, and a chance to connect with SMCS families new and old.
Tickets for this adult only event are $50 each and cover your meal and drinks. Sponsorship opportunities are still available. You can register and find more details at www.smcsallaboard.org.
