Also, the girls basketball team would like to thank the whole community for making the tamale fundraiser a great success. The fundraiser delivered more than 100 dozen over three days.

Thank you to Cecilia Alcala for all her hard work and making all this possible. Thank you to Jennifer Monroe of the Avalon Recreation Department for helping put everything together.
