MARC will host our annual Christmas Party after an abbreviated business meeting on Tuesday December 12 at Spring Creek Barbecue located on the northwest corner of the intersection of US-75 and US-380 in Mckinney. It is in the Target parking lot facing the southbound US-75 service road. There will be door prizes and a white elephant gift exchange. Join us for all of the fun!
