WORLDS FINEST CHOCOLATE BARS

The Performing Arts Booster Club will be selling World’s Finest Chocolate bars beginning next week. Variety boxes of chocolate bars will be distributed to cast members from “White Christmas” and “The Little Mermaid” on February 12 & 13. The PABC is asking each cast family to take at least one box to sell… but there will be prizes for those selling the most, so families may take more than one box or pick up a second or third box later. All chocolate bars should be sold by March 1, and prizes will be given on March 4. The Performing Arts Booster Club raises funds each year to cover the cost of sound & lighting for the musicals. Please call Mr. Bill Dillard (918-779-8266) or Mrs. Bernie Bloemker (918-810-1996) with questions.
