games and decorations. Make the evening meal an extra special affair. Have entertainment come in.

fund raiser idea and a charity. Be sure to have enough help. Not only are you helping your community but you are also helping to get your facility known in the area.

involved, especially when it is someone they know.

meals accordingly. Have maps available and make crafts from the different countries. Local travel agencies may provide brochures and interesting information.
