    That's great.....:D
    Shows the locals we really do care for the area....
    Hopefully this will smooth over some of the negatives that occurred.

    In cash, yes, we surpassed our $4000 Goal. Thanks to everyone for that.

    There has yet to be a total weight figure, but it sure did look like more than in the past. Again, thanks to everyone.

    Let's not forget the gentleman who won the Dragon Bingo 50-50 raffle... when his ticket was called he stepped up on stage and when given the $550+ cash winnings, he gave it all right back to the Food Bank donations.
    Classy move my friend :Thumbsup:

    Is his name seriously Freeman Cooper? Very classy move, it is one of the first things we tell people about when asking about MOTD.

    Checks are in the mail. I also asked the Cheri, the head of the chamber of commerce, to give me feedback on the local perspective of our club this year. She replied "I have never heard anything bad, it’s all been good!"

    Didn't hear back on that. They usually run a thank ad in the local paper with that info. I'll post up when I get my copy.
