Activities for the public start at 5 p.m. with music and a silent auction. A turkey sandwich supper will be served from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Throughout the night, participating teams will be serving pizza, selling drinks and refreshments and offering activities ranging from mini-golf and face painting to a dunk tank.
