The softball and kickball tournaments are filling up fast. I think there are one or two spots left in men’s softball and 2 or 3 in kickball. So, if you want to play in either, get your registration in or contact Dale for softball and me for kickball. We are still looking for items for the silent auction if anyone is interested in putting together a basket or something. I am also still looking for bakers, we can always use more baked goods. All I ask is that they aren’t perishable and they can’t contain nuts due to allergies. Bars, cookies, pies, etc. are all welcome! As always you can always donate to the fundraiser at the bottom of the website page. The families have been announced, and you can view them on the "Meet The Families" page on the website.The new flyers that we will be hanging at businesses will have the pictures of the families on them. There will also be containers at some businesses in town to donate that way too if you want. You can also buy your tickets for the Pulled Pork meal at Midtown Foods, HyVee and 5th Street Liquor.
I would like to end my entry today by thanking Winona Agency in their support of TEAM VOGEL vs Cancer! A couple weeks ago they had a “wear your jeans to work”day. Employees got to wear jeans that day for $5.00 I believe. They also had some items that I think you could win by playing Blinko. They also sold banana splits that day as well! This raised $305 and then Winona Agency matched $100 of that! So the day raised $405!! It was Mary Jo’s way to pay it forward by helping us pay it forward!! We just met her about a month ago at a cancer survivor’s get-together. After Rachel spoke, I think she was so touched by what we were doing that she wanted to find a way to help. She did a great job and it sounds like this was one of the most successful “wear your jeans to work” days that they have had!! So thanks again Mary Jo and everyone that participated that day!! That is all I have today, I hope you all have a wonderful holiday weekend!!
