Friday, August 2, 2013

To the Editor:

I would like to thank all of the 4-H'ers who participated in the Foods or Microwave projects for contributing to a successful 4-H Food Auction at the Putnam County Fair.

I would also like to thank everyone that purchased food at our bake sale and auction. The proceeds will be used to improve the 4-H exhibit area.

Thanks to the following individuals and businesses for purchasing an item from the auction -- Parke County REMC; Mike and Lisa Chadd; the Baugh Family; Suzanne Travelstead; Russell Crosby Family; Jacob Robertson; Emmett Holsapple; Megan Burdine; Nickie Taylor; Kady McKean; Brian and Jodi Judy; Phil and Sharon St. John; Beth Ann and Kelly Hansen; Ernie Sheldon; Huge Family; Jeff Hansen; Andrew, Annette and Ethan Maier; Jerrod, Tara and Gayle Baugh.

A big thanks to our auctioneer, Jeff Rich, who volunteered his time.

Lastly, many thanks to Lisa Chadd and Stacy Williams for their help with the auction and bake sale.
