Thank you. The Nicaraguan Educational fundraiser was again a great success!
Laurie and Bill Barrett hosted the event at the Birdwalk Restaurant and were assisted by Beth and Sean Callaghan of the Clinton Restaurant (Salamanca).
Through all the generous donations, we will be able to accomplish a great deal again this year. Countless children will receive much needed school supplies, books and uniforms. Also, several older students will be receiving tuition for technical school training, to become auto mechanics, nurses, carpenters and chefs.
Our committee members, Etta Walker, Nita Widger, Teresa Mercer, Linda Wiatrowski, Cyndi O’Dell, Rita Richardson, Patricia Perks, Kathy Weishan, Carol Thomas, Donna Brooks, Time Brown, John Thomas, Liz Boberg and Jack Little, deserve a special thank you. They have worked tirelessly for the past 5 years to better the lives of the Nicaraguan children. And their chairperson, Judy Brown, has donated her time, energy, and love to making this effort a success.
We are overwhelmed by your generosity and continual support of our educational efforts. On behalf of the Nicaraguan youth, much as gracias, Amigos!
Lucie Olson and Anneen Barrera
