Business Office...News?

No, it's not quite Halloween, but we had a fun little scare in the business office!

I would like to give a special shout out to Doug Christensen and Robyn Lutes in the business office. We had a BAT..a BAT!! In our office!! They were able to safely catch the bat in some kitchen Tupperware and release it outside and save all of our lives from certain death!

-SunDee Baguley, Business Office Manager
