Will you also take anything about the Victim's Benefit off of S&B as well. We have decided not to hold it. With the total lack of support from this community for Recro Fest last Saturday, I simply can not justify having Wal Mart give us over $1,000 in food donations to hold an event that would not be supported by the folks here this side of the Shenandoah. Instead I'll take the cash donation they have offered to the teen club to support The Shack.
DATE: May 12th
TIME: 4:00 to 9:00 p.m.
PLACE: Mountain Community Center
MENU: Spaghetti, Garlic Bread, Salad, Coffee, Tea, Water and Iced Tea
The Shack Teen Club which is a joint venture of St. Andrew's On-the-Mount and FOCUS, are hold a Victim's Benefit. It will be an all you can eat spaghetti dinner and silent auction. The proceeds of this benefit will be given equally to Cpl. Ronald Fletcher and the children who lost their father during this tragic event last February. We requested and have received permission from everyone involved to hold this benefit. Wal Mart and Martin's are providing all of the supplies/food we need for this event; and we are seeking donations for the silent auction from local businesses and artists and support from other local businesses. If you would like to volunteer in any capacity, please call Melinda Keuroglian at 728-2174.
We hope to see you there! Thank you for your anticipated support.
