The time for our annual fundraiser is coming up quickly. We are very excited to be holding our Community Carnival Saturday, April 29, 2017,  here at Legacy.  We could use all the help we can get. What a fun way to get your volunteer hours in by helping out.  If you would like to help coordinate, please feel free to contact Kathy Smith via email kathy.smith@legacyk8.org.
