Friendship has been challenged to donate as much money as possible toward completing our Family Life Center. Someone will match up to $150,000 for each dollar that we raise through December 31, 2014.

On Saturday, October 25, there will be a Rook/Uno Tournament with hot dog plates for sale, to raise funds for FLC.
