Our 12th Annual Potluck Thanksgiving Dinner and Auction was held on Sunday, Oct 18th from 4:30 to 7:30 pm, in the Community Hall. Turkeys were once more provided by the generous donation of Eric and Sue Boulton. 83 attended this fun event, a special opportunity for those of us from different paths to meet, share delicious food, get to know one another better, and to work together to provide funds for charities on the island.
Following dinner, there was an auction of goods and services.As Eric Boulton, our Auctioneer for all of our previous auctions, had a previous commitment David Soy and Richard Pullano stepped in to encourage all attending that the monies collected were going to worthwhile sources.
. Once again the auction of services was very popular. We raised $795.00 and along with the bake table and 50/50 draw, and door donations we raised sufficient funds to again give significant donations to three charities, PHC, the school lunch program and the Gathering Place, and to have a back up account to help fund programs for the coming year.
Thank you to all who brought delicious pot luck food, to the kitchen crew and the cheerful volunteers who so beautifully set up the tables and again cleared the hall in time for the Election volunteers to come and prepare for the next day at the polls.
