ACCDA’s salad supper fundraiser was a success this past week, and thank you to everyone who came! The food was delicious and it’s always fun to see people from your community that you don’t get to see every day. There was a door prize this time, and Marge Koone and Bob Alvord were the lucky winners. They both won ACCDA t-shirts. On Saturday, the EH Club had its dinner and bingo fundraiser and it was a huge success, thank you to everyone who came and participated in it as well. There was almost a full house and that was really wonderful to see. Bob Alvord cooked the burgers and brats onsite at the EH Club building and all of the food was delicious. There were many winners in bingo, too, and almost everyone walked away with a prize. The next dinner and bingo night will be in November.


There will be an EH Club meeting on Thursday, August 10 from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. at the Alread EH building, and whether you’re a member or interested in joining, please come.
