THANK YOU to all who came out to the Chinese Auction for the Conversation Station. An overwhelming crowd came to participate in this event and we hope they all had a fabulous evening.
The YOUTH who volunteered were all hardworking and all pitched in however they could help. This show of support from the community will continue to help the CONVERSATION STATION touch young lives in the Grand Valley area. In fact, entire families have been changed by the interaction of young and old at the CS.
A few names must be mentioned for their effort which was above & beyond to make this fundraiser a success : Kim Valenti & Pat Hunter for chairing this event. Barb & Brian Wilcom for their support and effort. The CS Board & friends for many hours of set-up, hauling, working of the event, and tear down: Ken & Sandy Nims, Peggy and Vince Dedek, Jim & Debbie Wann, Laurie & Jim Kreig.
