CARD OF THANKS:
What a wonderful weekend of celebrating faith, family and friendships formed in the 100 years leading up to the St. John’s Catholic Church’s Centennial Celebration! Our Parish is so grateful for all who came to celebrate with us. The crowds were delightful! We are humbled by all who offered time, equipment, donations, expertise and prayers for good weather. God smiled on all of that and gave us a perfect weekend and so many people to celebrate with our parish. God Bless You!
We would like to thank all the CVA guys for taking out our belongings and for bringing it all back in. Thanks for storing it all and for the trailers. Thanks to my Dad, brothers, and Tom Wilkinson. Thanks also to the CVA Elgin guys. Thanks to Tim Hart for taking our cattle to higher ground…a lot of hands during the flood makes it go faster. It really goes to show how a small town can help us out in our time in need. Thank you!
THANK YOU, to all Clearwater people and the area communities for the help, labor, and support that you have given us during our flooding. This proves that we are not just towns but one big community and that we can unite and be strong and all work together well.
Thank you to all the people and businesses who donated the many items for the door prizes for our anniversary dinner. A very special thank you to all the volunteers who have helped throughout these last 20 years. The Center would not be able to run without our wonderful volunteers! We appreciate all that you do! Also thank you to Jessie Reestman and Beth Miller for the beautiful decorations for the night. You did a wonderful job!
