MR. SPRING MELT!!!!!! He has been the Chairman of the Spring Melt Committee for over 20 years.
He organized the event, did the mailings, corresponded with the vendors, set-up and broke down the hall,

organization and enabled us to donation $200, 000 to local burn centers. The event will not be the same
