Sept. 13 — Woman’s Club Style Show/Salad Luncheon/Quilt Raffle Library Fund Raiser

Sept. 13 is NOT a typo. The Salad Luncheon is earlier this year than it’s been for a few years. The date changed to avoid conflicts with other events in the area.

As usual, you can expect delicious food. Club members will furnish a variety of salads, from crunchy tossed veggies to pastas and meats and desserts. There’ll also be dessert breads and sandwiches and lots of other yummies, as well as coffee and tea.

Club members will decorate the tables in individually interesting ways and an area merchant will provide outfits for the style show, which will feature club members and their daughters and grand-daughters. There also will be lots of door prizes, so you’ll want to save your luncheon ticket stubs for the drawings.

Vintage Memories Web Jean Ang made this year’s lovely quilt — the latest in a long, long line of quilts she’s made for the annual auction. It’s called “Vintage Memories” and is gorgeous, as her quilts always are.

Shannon and James Sydik Win Silent Auction

The lovely old barrister’s bookcase which was in the library building (former bank building) for many years found a new home with Shannon and James Sydik, whose bid won the silent auction.

We are grateful that the bookcase has a new home and that the library has the funds for a more appropriate bookcase – and some books to fill it up! Thank you, Shannon and James.

Salad Luncheon/Quilt Raffle – Once Again, SUCCESS!

The Oct. 12, 2013 Salad Luncheon/Style Show/Quilt Raffle netted $2086.58 for the library this year. Sales outdid last year — $1151 for raffle tickets and $1329.04 for luncheon tickets. Expenses totaled $393.46 (hall rental and sandwich meats and buns).

Guests arrived at 11:00 and enjoyed touring the room to see the table decorations. Members of the Woman’s Club decorated the tables (except for two decorated by a local Red Hat Ladies group) and each was unique. Members also contributed two salads each (one protein, one vegetable or dessert salad), quick breads, and their time in setting up for the event, making the sandwiches, and making and serving beverages. Our special thanks to Woman’s Club Officers Michelle Gerdes, Jan Hygnstrom, Cheryl Ludvik, and Cheryl Rieck, kitchen coordinator Jean Ohnoutka, and to all the members who together did everything from planning and coordinating the work to making and selling tickets.

Members and their daughters and granddaughters modeled clothes the Vickerage furnished – as it has every year since 1988! Models included Jean Ang, Becky Gould, Harriet Gould, Jean Lentz, LuAnn Maly, Sara Martin, Leonita Masek, Alyce Matulka, Lexi Matulka, Diane Matulka, Samantha Matulka, Erma Nord, Malorie Paxton, Cheryl Rieck, and Monica Tvrdy

Before and during breaks in the show, Mistress of Ceremony Harriet Gould announced winners of the many door prizes furnished by businesses and local residents. The final event was the drawing for the quilt, which Don Suchy of Valparaiso won.

OUR PROFOUND THANKS TO JEAN ANG FOR MAKING AND DONATING THE QUILT AND TABLE RUNNERS. You are truly a marvel.

Our thanks to Shannon Sydik for taking photos of the event. You can see her photos of the tables and many of the guests and Style Show models AND OF THE QUILT at this link:
