Local individuals, businesses and organizations continue to show their support for Sterling Community Club’s activities.
This year’s Winter Fun Day was an example of this support. To those volunteers, businesses and organizations who supported this activity, we thank you. We would also like to thank those children and parents who participated in the events and made the day a fun day for everyone.
