Newest WEB Page
 
 
 There will be many new things to look at, I encourage you to explore all the pages above, particularly News & Events and Gallery each will have sub-categories to explore, for example under News & Events you will have items like, Newsletters, Holly National Cemetery, Goldstar Mothers, Blood Drive, Peach Festival, and so on, by clicking on them there will be more information behind the scenes.  In the Gallery you will find many categories that will include pictures behind each category, theses will be from older events. There is also an Officers Page that will allow you to get to know your elected officers better (this is still under construction waiting for more input).  After you browse through the pages (Tabs) on top of the Home Page, don't forget to check out the bottom of the page for more places to visit, for example Programs, which if clicked on will explain how a student in the local high school can apply for the Carl LaRock Scholarship Program and even have a link for the form to fill out.  Please remember this site is brand new and many things need to be added/updated, please check back frequently.  If you receive error codes working the site you may email me at cchiefmsgt@gmail.com  This Email is ONLY for this web site and you will NOT receive a reply, I monitor this email weekly only, should you need to contact me and expect a reply you must do so through my AOL account which is not listed here as this public site is open to scrapers & spammers to capture my email and deluge me in Spam.
I hope you enjoy the new site
