VOL. XLI NO. 3 - July 2017
As in previous years, the folks at Oakland celebrated our nation’s independence with a patriotic breakfast. The festive gathering included 174 adults and 3 children, all of whom were treated to a bountiful buffet of bacon, eggs, hash browns, fresh fruit and pastries. Back again, by popular demand, was Dr. Dan, The Pancake Man (AKA Dan Drake), a culinary artist who fashions personalized and uniquely shaped cakes using only a griddle and squeeze bottles of batter.
The Silent Auction is always a favorite feature of the July 4th event, and this year was no exception. Attendees, who bid on a wide variety of auction items, also found wonderful bargains at tables dedicated to Tracy’s Treasures. When the bidding and sales finally closed, the auction had realized a profit of $460.00! Thanks to our many generous members for their donations, and extra-special thanks to the Auction Committee: Pam Danklef, Joyce Rich, Ingrid Schaeffer and Nancy Harmon. In addition, gratitude goes to Tracy Coleman for the treasure table, Cathy Rapp for handling the cash box, and all the other volunteers for pitching in to monitor and close out the auction.
We truly appreciate the Don Harbaugh Family for selling Pot of Gold tickets that resulted in a profit of $280.00, and we’re very grateful for the donations we received totaling $139.00. The combined hard work of so many dedicated people contributed to an overall event profit of $1,123.43.
