Friday Dinner Canceled for 2/3/17

I’m sorry, but we JUST got an email from Chapel of the Cross were the dinner is schedule to be this evening that they are going to have to cancel because of the water issue and close the church. It is the lack of water for bathrooms and also lack of a fire sprinkler system if anything were to happen. We have no choice but to cancel. So sorry, we were looking forward to a fun evening together.
