The Annual Birthmonth Rally is a program to raise money for the building fund of the church.  This program has been in existence so long, no one remembers when it started.
Each month has a captain.  Each month tries to out do the other, but September always wins.  It is a lot of fun.
               Men's March for Christmas

This is a program to raise money for the less fortunate for Christmas.  $1875 was raised and will go to three families for Christmas.  All proceeds go to the families.
