MiniCals Benefit for NAME Members Affected by the Camp Fire
The MiniCals are planning a “catch-up on kits/potluck” for our mini friends in the Chico club. Several friends have lost their homes. Those who have worked relief efforts in Santa Rosa feel gift cards would be best at this time. Therefore, admission to our event will be a door prize for fun, and gift cards for our friends. Whatever cards you can bring will be much appreciated and dispersed among the Chico club ASAP. If you have a personal note/card, we will make sure that they receive those also.
