Saturday, February 1st
at VFW Hall

Tickets are $26 per person, or $31 at the door. They can be purchased at any of the three banks in town, as well as at Rawson Memorial District Library.

Please consider attending this event. This is the event where the community honors the Citizen and Junior Citizen of the Year. It is a great way to meet members of the community, as well as support those who do so much to help make Cass City the great place it is!

We are also holding a silent auction that evening. The proceeds of the auction go to the Junior Citizen of the Year Scholarship fund.
