The event was a sellout and attendees proved to be generous for the annual “Evening With Friends” fundraiser for Pope John XXIII Central Catholic High School. This year’s theme was “Tropical Escape” and thats just what the crowd needed as estimates of 7-8 inches of snow coated the Elgin area on Saturday and Sunday.

The Elgin Chamber of Commerce/Community Club met last Monday with Vetch Days on their minds. With the majority of the group’s members wanting a carnival available for kids during the annual celebration, one 3-day time is an option for the event. Richards Amusements has contacted the Chamber with a contract making the days of June 22-24 the only dates available. This would make the Vetch Days celebration a Monday-Tuesday-Wednesday event. The committee will be working hard to make these days workable for all wishing to attend. More will be announced later.
Other items: Chili Cookoff will be held on Saturday, March 14 at the KC Hall. Donna Mackel is chair of the event. The Easter Egg Hunt is scheduled for Saturday, April 4 at the city park. Much discussion was held on an appropriate donation to the Elgin Area Community Foundation from the group. The item was tabled to next meeting.

CARD OF THANKS:
THANK YOU CITIZENS OF ANTELOPE COUNTY! It is with heartfelt thanks that we get to express our appreciation to the many businesses, organizations, churches and individuals throughout Antelope County for your generosity to “the Pantry” during the past year. Without your donations of food and time – the needs of the Pantry wouldn’t be met. In case misinformation has come to your hearing – there are no paid workers at the Pantry – EVERYONE IS A VOLUNTEER. Again, “thank you”.
Bev Alderson, manager: Bill, Jeanne, Bulah, Nancy, Kim, Becky and N-O 6th grade.
Thanks to everyone who has helped in any way to get through this ordeal. A small town with “Big Time Help”. Thanks to neighbors for food and transportation, to the rescue unit and for all the get well wishes, prayers and help for our recovery, to Janice and Linda who took time off their jobs to help wherever needed. Thanks to Dr. Hupp for the special care when neither of us could drive. Thanks to the Albion Hospital staff for our good care. To Gayle with his help in getting to therapy. To Merle B, Bob M and Jim K for their alertness that Wayne was not making angels in the snow the morning he fell.
