In the early spring CTR members and many volunteers put on a Fundraising Dinner in the Community Center in New Effington, SD.
A delicious meal of turkey gravy over mashed potatoes, green beans, cranberry sauce, bread and various desserts.
Many volunteers bring delectable desserts. It's hard to decide which one to choose.
After the dinner is finished balloons are collected from the tables. Children and adults gather outside to set the balloons free to travel far and wide taking with them information about CTR. It's amazing how far many do travel.
