The Staunton Community Center Open House is this Sunday from 1-4 p.m., officially "welcoming" this new building into our community.
Meat and drinks will be furnished, and everyone attending is asked to bring a covered dish and a gift for the building. The center can use paper products, cleaning supplies, trash bags, kitchen towels, dish cloths, pot holders and other practical items. Also, cash donations are always welcome and appreciated.
Everyone is invited to come out and see our beautiful new building, meet with friends and neighbors and enjoy some good food.
