Dear LaGrange Community,

Please join us for the Annual Super on March 7th, 2013 from 5:00-7:00pm at the War Memorial Community
Building. We will be serving homemade pizza again this year!

As you all know, the Community Building continues to be a valuable asset to the LaGrange community. It serves
as the site for many activities and special occasions throughout the year. The building is the gathering spot for
the annual fireworks, mini-fair celebration, the Legion’s Veteran’s Day dinner, and AWANA activities. It is always
available for local funeral receptions and wedding/anniversary parties, too. Because of your generosity, last
year’s fundraiser was a HUGE success and we are sure the tradition of community support will continue this

We hope this evening will be an opportunity for all of you to visit with old and new friends, and have a good time.

Your generosity makes the use of the Community Building possible and the Community Building Board
appreciates the support from everyone.
