We are so thankful and happy to announce that Hilery Leatherman, Realtor Homesbyhil Solutions is sponsoring the Kona truck for us starting at 12:30. Cups are provided but if you happen to have a Kona cup you can bring your own (the plastic cups are larger and you can use your own to get more if that’s your preference). We will have tickets to make sure everyone who wants to enjoy gets to! Kona has another obligation and can’t stay the entire time so come early if you want to enjoy! Many thanks to Hilery and her team for this delicious gift!
