SpiderFest 2013 Success!

Thanks to everyone that supported Spiderfest 2013. It was a record turnout and looks to be a record fund raiser for ERTA. Sorry that we came up a little shy on food. Looks like we needed enough to serve about 20 more. They even added extra in at the last minute expecting a bigger crowd. It was an even bigger crowd than expected. Our food guys did an outstanding job getting it close. Thanks to the Smithville Trail Crew for all the hard work putting this event on.
