Recipient grateful for donations

A fundraiser was held Sept. 20 at the American Legion to assist with the expenses for my recent hip replacement surgery. The evening was a huge success. It would be impossible to mention everyone who brought the night together, but I will do my best.

The American Legion, The Uglys, Tammie Rush (your chef and leader of the kitchen), Judith McDermaid and the many volunteers spearheaded the effort. Our entire business community, including our local fishing fleet, were incredibly generous, let alone those who personally donated food or auction items. 

Certainly, a giant thank-you to the entire community for all you have donated in every way, including just stopping on the street to say, “Hi.”

All is well because of you.
