To The Editor,
Many thanks to all our friends and acquaintances for supporting the benefit held on my behalf on April 27. The encouragement and support was overwhelming and humbling.
Special thanks to the bands and entertainers: Common Ground, Mixed Nuts, The Battle Weary Band, Ryan Ritchea Band, Barbara Lynn & The Silver Eagle Band, The Ebert Brothers, The Tharp Brothers, The Price Family, Norma Long, Teresa Shreve, Sandy Brookover, and Rodney Sands for providing such awesome entertainment all day long. We appreciate your time and your talent.
To many of the local businesses who donated items for the auction and raffles: we are truly grateful for your support.
We would like to also thank the youth, as well as adults, who helped in preparing food, for serving, and for the cleanup afterwards. And thank you to our families for their help.
Thanks to Pat Henderson and family for not only providing excellent sound for the entertainment, but also for helping out at every opportunity.
And last but not least, so much appreciation is due to Vicki Glasscock and Mary Jo Childers for organizing and planning the event and for the many months of hard work you put into the benefit. A simple thank-you seems so inadequate, but it's a start.
God Bless You All!
Ron & Vera Hoskinson
