Hooting Heard!

While it was admittedly a bit subdued because of the heat, there was still some hooting at the Valley Grange Hall on Friday as a number of people braved the heat to participate in our supper and music program. We do appreciate the support of those who agreed it was “too hot to cook” — we even had one take out order!

A special thanks goes to all those who helped put this event together… we had a number of food donations and lots of willing workers. One featured item was a  home baked pie featuring handpicked raspberries. Don and Eileen Ebbling provided it and rather than serve it we auctioned it off before the music… for $20!

Other than the pie, our leftovers were donated to the volunteer crew at the JD Foundation Yard Sale… an amazing bunch of people who aren’t letting the heat stop them from raising record funds for their suicide awareness and prevention program. If you want to brave the elements today, a trip to Abbot would be supportive and there are plenty of treasures left for your shopping pleasure.

Also thank to North Country Strings players Susan, Ruth, and Paul for a great performance as always. They even opened with the “Grange Welcome Song!”
