Director's Monthly Message

     First, thank you Barbara and Fletcher Thornton for your planning and organizational skills applied to our recent Chili & Salsa Cook Off.  Without your direction and hard work it would not have happened.  I would like to take this opportunity to also thank all of our Chili and Salsa chefs.  You are amazing.  Without you, it would have been just another day in the park.

Congratulations to our winners:

Chili—1st: Jim Reynolds; 2nd: Hank Lescher; 3rd:  Kassie Koontz

Salsa—1st: Jim Reynolds; 2nd: Curt Amarantes; 3rd: Efrain Santana (Hardester’s)

Peoples’ Choice:  Chili:  Hank Lescher; Salsa: South Lake Fire


A huge thank you to our donors:

Bronze Sponsor ($150):  Hardester’s Markets & Hardware

Silver Sponsor ($250): Margaret Greenley (Lovie’s),  Hidden Valley Food Market

Gold Sponsor ($500):  Twin Pine Casino & Hotel; Middletown Area Merchants Association; Wild Diamond Vineyards

      To all of the others donating everything from cash to product. 

For wine: Fr. James McSweeney, Darbey Deaver, Markham Vineyards, Jim Reynolds. 

For beer:  Moke and Nance Simon.


     Our volunteers all deserve a blue ribbon at the very least.  Without them, it wouldn’t have happened at all.  Because of their assistance, we were able to raise approximately $4,000.


     Thanks to all of YOU who assisted with our fundraiser in support of our Meals on Wheels and lunch programs.  Our seniors, plus all of those connected to the center, are appreciative.  Thanks, also, to all of YOU who came down to check out and support the festivities. 

All of the above are awesome!!!




     Our Thrift Store (New to You) has been ever changing, so we have had to improvise new ways to highlight the store’s treasures. 

Needed are bookshelves!


      If you haven't checked out our thrift store for awhile, maybe it’s time.

 “Often” is a great time to check out “what’s new”.  The items in the thrift store are ever changing.  The jewelry department has been greatly expanded.   There could be a fantastic treasure awaiting you.


     The clothes department is relatively small, but has quite a number of fine items.  That blouse you have been searching for to wear with your favorite skirt or pants could be waiting just for you.  Check it out.


Do you need a hand?
