There is a new dual property under construction next to GM–a Sleep/Mainstay.

Lost River Cave reported its Reindeer Encounter event last weekend was a success. Its next major event is the Snow Flurry Scurry 5K Run in January.

BGALA members played a fun Dirty Santa game and held drawings for gift cards based on donated items for The Foundry. Members collected these and donated them after the meeting. Thanks to all who donated in support of this local cause during the holiday season.

Thanks for a great 2018. See you all in 2019!
