On Monday, February 25, 2019, at 11:30 am, the Elderberries will gather near the Barksdale Classroom and watch a DVD together.  The video will be another one by the Christian comedians that we saw last year and were enjoyed by all!

This is being called another “Bag or BoJs” event, so bring a bag lunch or call Richard Collier at 336-984-7548 to place an order for BoJangles that Richard will pick up for you!  Leave me a message if you get my voice mail!

Come and join us all you Elderberries and Elderberry Wanna-bes!  We have a great time!
