There were many laughs and memories made once again at the live auction. The day started with our 5K run/walk, followed by a time of musical worship and a message. Then folks enjoyed a wonderful BBQ Turkey lunch (thanks to Woodland Farms in Story City) as well as peruse through the silent auction. We once again want to thank all of the incredibly gifted people who helped quilt the masterpieces for this great event. We could not do this without you! Thanks to the many volunteers, our summer staff, as well as all of the wonderful people who bid on quilts. We hope to see you all next year!
