1.  Merritt Music Program 

Please support the Merritt Academy Music Department in their annual Achatz Pie Fundraiser

The fundraiser runs through Wednesday, October 18th. 

Also, we have proudly teamed up with 3 veterans charity organizations to allow you to purchase Pies for Veterans.  So if you don't want a pie for yourself, buy a pie for a vet!  Each pie will contain a card thanking a vet for their service. 

You can also send your $20 donation via PayPal using the email address:  https://www.paypal.com/paypalme/amvetsriders57 

We will purchase the pie and put your name on the thank you card

If you would like to purchase a pie for yourself or buy a pie for a Veteran, please see Mr. Kimsey.  The pies will be here prior to Thanksgiving break, just in time for the Holidays!
