Meat Or Heat Becomes a Treat!

Senior member Laura Pratt was deemed the most honest face at our recent Family Fun Night and as such she got to draw the winner of this year’s “Meat or Heat” Raffle. A lot of folks applauded enthusiastically when we announced the winner was Jim French of French’s Construction in Guilford. It’s always nice to see good things happen to nice people.

Jim is a staunch supporter of his community and Valley Grange. For a number of years he’s kept our parking lot plowed and has “been there” when we needed assistance. It seemed especially fitting that we were getting an opportunity to “give something back” to this great guy.

We should have known better.

Without hesitation, he refused his winnings and donated the prize back to Valley Grange.  So now we can fill OUR oil tank… or maybe buy some more dictionaries… we’ll think of something!

If you see Jim around town, tell him he’s a great guy and thank him for all he does–a lot of it goes unnoticed. (Be warned, though. This will sometimes start an “argument” with him but it’s worth it.)

    Since Jim’s not exactly a computer guru, Sherry said it would be okay if I posted his two word comment when he heard what we said about him.

    “Aw shucks.”
