A lively affair

Lots of German polka music will entertain those in attendance at the Germanfest, and, as always, multigenerational families will be involved.

“Come join the fun and enjoy great foods at our 20th celebration,” say the church members.

Cain Ridge Road can be accessed from Halls Ferry Road and from Highway 61 South.
