There's always a lot going on in the fall, but this year seems to be a record-breaker. There are some great events coming up and they all benefit the Friendship Centers. Plus, they're just plain fun. "Fun" is one of those very special words we too often forget about with the day-in day-out challenges of life. For more information, just click the photograph next to each event.
