RHA Annual Meeting and Fundraiser Results

Sunday, February 8, 2009

Mark Bartsch & Mike HoryzaThe sounds of happy laughter and enthusiastic conversations indicated the success of the 19th annual fundraiser. The hustle and bustle began earlier this year.

Chairpersons were ready for activity by 11:00 a.m. as anxious shoppers headed for the tables. The proficient cooks served a tasty Italian meal at 12:00 noon and a brief meeting took place before the live auction at 1:00 p.m.

Rita Fredericks joined the regular team of cooks, Shirley Wright, Jean Hoffman and Robin Cowan who are always on the job early in the morning. Tina Horzya makes and serves the gallons of tea. Cindy and George Goertz of Rockne Grocery furnish all the ice and deliver the beer donated by Wright Distributing Company.

The popular silent auction drew a crowd as usual keeping chairpersons Clara White and Joy Goertz busy. The raffle also drew large numbers. Daniel and Connie Lehman, Sue and Shannon Taylor efficiently listed the donations.

ClaireThanks to Olivia Hoffman’s expertise and Ovon Goertz’s assistance, nearly 200 participants were listed electronically.

Gerri Martinez and Marian NelsonCashier for the Live Auction, Gerri Martinez thanks everyone for patiently waiting in line to pay and she promises to make some changes next year to expedite the process.
