  • Trick or Treat Village – Our Trick or Treat Village was a huge success, so thank you to everyone who participated in any way. There were tons of photos taken that evening in case you missed it or even if you were there and want to relive the fun. You can see some by visiting our Facebook photo albums and by visiting Mitch Ragsdale’s album here: http://on.fb.me/1wrzQHc   and finally there are still more on our shared photos page here: https://chstrojanband.com/photos/   Thank you to Mitch Ragsdale and Rita Gentry for sharing these wonderful images! Your time and talent is very appreciated.
  • Disney Trip – All Disney trip balances are due TODAY! After today, November 3rd, those with remaining balances will forfeit their reservation and all previous payments. There will be no refunds offered after today, November 3rd. Until midnight tonight, November 3rd, you are eligible for a refund of all payments, less the $100 deposit and any online payment fees. These policies have been in place since the trip was announced and are necessary to meet our obligations and secure the proper number of rooms and transportation.
