Eagles Pancake Breakfast
The Pancake Breakfast at the Eagles held on October 15, 2017 was a success. I don’t have the final figures yet but will let you know in December’s newsletter. The winner of the electric pressure washer was Shelly Chicos, a Spanish teacher at the high school.
Baker, Ginny Ruppe, Kay Schuster, Mary Overlee-Olson, Tom Schmitt, and Jim and Nan Elsbecker. Also a special thanks to Cindy Rau for getting her friends to help us out when we desperately needed it, Kathy Gunderson, Denise and Bruce Born, and Russ and Jan Bauwer, they were so needed.
CulturFest gave us a $50 donation for participating in the event in September.
Remember if you get a new volunteer to join our organization, you will receive a $5 gift card from HyVee as a thank you.
