Liberty USFW


Will have the USFW Spring Conference Friday and Saturday, April 27-28.  This is a change from April 13-14.




On January 25, 6 people were involved in preparing, serving and cleanup for 41 guests.  The pork roast, tator tots, biscuits, green beans with bacon, raw carrots, fruit, pudding, chocolate cake, milk, and coffee were enjoyed and appreciated. 

Thanks to our great volunteers who provided food or funds or went to prepare, serve & clean the kitchen: Scott & Mary, Diane R., Darla, and Diane T.  A small crew but they got the job done well.  We are not on the schedule to do a meal in February.
