The Eden Valley-Watkins Community Ed. office would like to extend a huge thank you to all who participated in Santa Day. Thank you, Santa and Mrs. Claus for visiting us. It was great to see your smiling faces. Thank you to
Bonnie Meyer, Kim Salo, and the Tri-M club for helping out. Thank you to Juliet Brutger for making our delicious cookies. A HUGE thank you to the Eden Valley Lions Club for sponsoring this event. It was very well attended with almost 150 children plus their parents. It was a cold day in Minnesota, but we all had a great time.
Thank you to all those who donated at the Red Cross Blood Drive in Watkins on Dec. 11. Sixty-seven units were collected. Of the donors, there were two first-time donors. These donors reached milestones and received pins: Linda Faber and Makayla Hesse earned one-gallon pins, Merrie Miller and Jim Wirz received eight-gallon pins, and Roxanne Dick earned a 10-gallon pin. Congratulations and thanks. All you donors made a difference in saving lives.
With the help of many community members, this drive was successful. Thank you to all the volunteers who worked as a team for this event, to the organizations who donated, prepared, and served the snacks to the donors and the meal for the Red Cross workers, and to those who set up and took down all the equipment.
Promoting this event was very important. Thank you to the Tri-County News for publishing the articles these past week.
Thank you to all.
Upcoming Drives: Jan. 7, at Kimball and Jan. 29, at Eden Valley.
