We raised a record amount of money for this affair, with meal sales, bake sale and our silent auction items. So many in the community contributed to the silent auction and again, we raised more money through that this year than ever before. Our bake sale table was laden with scrumptious goodies created by volunteer bakers.   Mark Louden in the early part of the evening and Power Plant later on provided enjoyable music  that the crowd enjoyed.
