  • No FUN RUN--The PAC Board has made an executive decision to move away from fundraising (with the exception of Kids First) for the remainder of the year and focus on community building. That being said, we are no longer doing a Fun Run this year.  As a PAC Board we are working with school staff to create a community building event such as another Bingo Night.  We had such a great turnout and positive feedback, we felt encouraged to host another event.
