Despite our attempts to reach all persons last weekend into this week through all forms of media of our Thursday cancellation, we have been made aware of the inconvenience caused by persons who still came out today to our advertised location at NAPA, POS.

We would like to humbly apologize for the disappointment this would have brought to our eager participants but due to circumstances outside of our control our location had to be cancelled and have done the best we can in providing a great program this year.

We look forward to assisting persons within our communities next year and the years to come!

Feel free to contact us via our page or contact number with any questions or concerns you may have related to the program
