Chuck’s has been very supportive over the years for our scholarship fund raising so we thank them.

This year’s event, scheduled for Monday, October 12th with pickup from 5:30 to 6:00 p.m., is sponsored by the EHS Class of 1988. Proceeds from the event will go towards their class reunion scholarship fund.
