July 12
At The MOSH

Click on PIC to magnify
Every year the MOSH celebrates his
birthday by having a cake and the JHS takes Tonca out for Dr. Rossi to examine him. We will need 4 volunteers who can get into the water and
pick him up. Please contact David if you would be interested. It will be held on July 12 which is our MVP day to give our time to the MOSH.
