Support appreciated

To the Editor:

We want to say thank you so much to our supportive community for coming out to the Fairmont Dollars for Scholars chicken dinner fund-raiser. Our gross earnings for the night were $6,850.

We’d also like to extend thanks to several organizations and people who helped make this evening go so smoothly. Pizza Ranch catered our dinner, and we’ve had such positive feedback on the food. They also helped with so many of the “little” things, which we really appreciate. You guys are great to work with.

Thank you to the Knights of Columbus, especially Jim Hahn and Jim Maday. You really do have such a nice place for events.

Thank you also to those who helped us publicize the event: Olson Rental, Wells Federal Bank, First Farmers and Merchants Bank, Sentinel, Photo Press, Gemini Studios, and KSUM.

Thank you also to Fareway for providing the to-go bags and the bag stand, and McDonald’s for providing the orange drink and cups.

A special thank you to the students who worked the event. We could never have done it without you.

Liz Wheeler,

executive secretary
