Thank You from Youth Group

Wow! Y’all broke the Pizza Ranch! Well, not actually, but Lila at the Pizza Ranch was blown away by your incredible support of our Junior High Youth Group. The Ranch was unable to keep up with orders and even had to take the phone off the hook for a short time to get caught up. Lila apologizes and thanks everyone for being patient while waiting for orders. The Junior High Youth Group was presented a check for $720  to use towards their service project! Thank you, ARC family, for your incredible generosity!
