Our Members Rock!
Thank you to all our members who stopped in and shopped our Christmas Extravaganza sale on November 18th. Thanks for making it a huge success again this year. Thanks to the volunteers, staff and Board members who worked very hard to bring this to the members. We would like to send out a big “Thank You” to Reliance Community Church for allowing us to hold our sale there. We really enjoyed the new location and have had wonderful feedback from our members. We have decided to extend the prices to our members on some of the toys and clothing that were on sale at the Christmas Extravaganza Sale for 2 more weeks in all our SBEA stores, so be sure to stop in and check out the great deals before they are gone.
Congratulations to Pam, Steve and Lloyd, winners of the 2017 election.
