We are SO THANKFUL for all the work and the wonderful turnout for Kate's benefit ride Saturday.
Thank you to Kyle and Anna, Debbie and Jeff, Wanda and Ron, Jeana Calfas, Mike Schluetter, and everyone else who was in on the planning; Karri Stuve, Darcy and her mom, Diane, Jessie, Lani, Pam Overland, and everyone else who helped with serving and tickets; thank you to the Messer/Douglas family and the Konzes for the hogs and the two wonderful guys who stayed up all night roasting them and to Knaus's for the cooker; to all the guys of Pandemic for the musical talent; to the Legion and Bill Adolf and the Kimball Fire Department; to all the people and businesses who donated prizes and auction items and the people who collected and managed them.
Thank you to everyone who came out to ride in the rain and to everyone who came out in support, or who couldn't make it and sent your prayers and gifts anyway; thank you to my mom, Judy James, for everything you do all the time; and thanks to Jean for letting me write all this!
I know that I am missing people (and probably misspelled names)Ðso many people have done so much. We give thanks daily that our lives have been blessed with kindness. Love and thanks, always and for everything
Sammi, and Kate.
