Last nite was the Italian Night Spaghetti supper for the HHHS Auxialliary. This was their 7th supper event and, like all the others, sold out months in advance. Judy Skinner, Suzanne Sovereign and their committee worked damn hard to put on a great evening. I was pleased to be the MC for the evening and announce all the silent auction recipients.
Young people from the Heritage Ballent, along with Julie Barban (owner and head instructor) and David Mills of the Haliburton Lions Club helped serve and clean up for all the attendees. The youngsters work events to raise a little cash towards their trip to Russia in the next year. Great bunch … and they worked with great diligence.
Jane’s butterflies raised lotsa dough as usual. Just before bidding closed on the selection, there was a crowd milling around to put their final bid on their favourite butterfly. The auction tables were filled with wonderful items donated by businesses and individuals to raise money for the hospital auxilliary.
I was delighted that we were successful in our bidding for a woodcarving by Keith Rydberg. I admire his work and was thrilled to add
“Going to Market” (complete with pigs in the back of the wagon) to our home.A great night, a great cause and soooo much laughter and fun. Congratulations to the women and men of the Haliburton Highlands Health Services Auxilliary for last night and the 40 years of service to our county and our health.
