Sandy would like to give a warm Thanks to City Hall for the use of their wonderful facility, to the Prairie Schools for the generous donations from their students, the Lions Club for setting up the food trailer and for the money donated from their concessions.
Thanks to Sonnen Meats for the donation of the meat, to Hoene Hardware, and especially to the great helpers, Judy Klapprich & granddaughter Selena Davila, Agnes Forsman, Marlene Duclos, Jill Seubert and Tara Ross. Thanks also to my husband, Terry and our son, Merlin & his wife Marilyn and family from Lewiston. Without all the wonderful help, I would never have been able to do this.
All items left were donated to the Tri-Co in Craigmont under the direction of Charlotte Dasenbrock.
Thank-You for everything.
