The Annual Craft and Bake Sale was a wonderful success. A bright spot in this unusual year. The sale brought in $1500.00 to benefit the senior center program.  Thank you to all the volunteers that donated items, decorated the center,  helped at the sale, cleaned up after the sale and of course purchased items!

Forgive me if I leave someone out: Mona and Tom Clayton, friendly cashiers and sales. Mona also donated handmade items (she bought a lot tooJ). Kathy and Patti Cobb for decorating, donations and clean up. Carol Beager decorating, donations, and clean up. Lori Romero donations and clean up. Judy Nelson decorating, clean up and great sales skills! And numerous folks that donated crafts and baked items. Thank you for all our generosity.

Also a special thank you to the White Pine County Clerk’s office for their annual donation. Each year instead of buy each other gifts the staff at the Clerk’s office donates to a local charity. For the past few years we have been privileged to be the recipient of their donation. Thank you for your heartfelt thoughtfulness.
