We would like to thank everyone who supported our recent fundraiser, the 300 Club. This was a fantastic event with great entertainment and delicious food. The Mud Pond Boys and Big Carl and Sundance really filled the air with great songs. There were plenty of hamburgers, hot dogs, whimpies, and sausage and pepper sandwiches and a huge variety of desserts was outrageous and absolutely scrumptious. The youngsters really had a “jumpin” time in the moonbounce. The hourly ticket drawings for the monetary prizes had everyone waiting to hear their name called. And odds for winning were good since there were 43 prizes and only 300 chances to win –that’s why it’s called the 300 Club. We also had over 200 items in our Silent Auction.
