Last evening was the fundraiser for our Great-Niece Aubrey. An evening for the community to come together to support a little girl in her quest for a perfect smile. The donations of items kept pouring in all week, we ended up with 130 items for the silent auction. People working together and coming together can accomplish so much….many very talented people came out of the woods for this fundraiser. The local Lions Club was in charge of serving and preparing the food, my Mother and my Aunt headed up the food preparation….the food was awesome! There were some great cooks/chefs in the kitchen. The dinner was roast pork and beef ( it practically melted in your mouth) , mashed potatoes, gravy, Finnish flat bread, coleslaw (simply out of this world), green beans and carrots (prepared in such a way that their flavors just popped) and every kind of homemade bars that you can imagine. I believe that about 450 people were served dinner. It was a "free will" donation.
After the silent auction was all set up, I managed to get a few photos..before the place filled with people.
