Boys & Girls Club Fundraiser

The Annual Boys and Girls Club Fund Raiser auction and barn dance at Lee and Kathleen Blumel Hoffpauir's barn on Saturday was a huge success. The live auction and various raffles and silent auction items, along with the $100 ticket cost brought a huge amount of cash for the operation of the local Boys and Girls Club.

Total funds-raised numbers are not absolutely official yet but it appears that about $250 thousand was raised -a much larger number than last year.

The local club is depended on by many working mothers of school age children, not only for affordable child care, but for help with school lessons and for sports and mentoring activities.
