a community gathering serving anyone who would like a home cooked meal.

Country Grocer Receipts  
In the past year CWL has received $1394.73 from the Country Grocer tapes. With this money, they have given $600 to Sunday Supper in the Park, $500 to the school lunch program, 
$200 to Grandma's House and $62.75 for Senior's Teas. Thank you for bringing in your receipts and please continue to do so; the money goes right back into the community.
