Letter to the Editor: Republican fundraiser

To the Editor:

The Republican fundraiser was held September 18 at the fairgrounds in Waukon. It was a great gathering, almost 175 people, and $18,000 was raised in this campaign. It was the best fundraiser ever.

Chuck Bloxham was the emcee, and he kept the program rolling telling the speaker there would be no bloviating, a five-minute limit, and to remember they are talking to the chair. Grace was said by Msgr. Ed Lechtenberg.

Food was furnished by BE Catered and music was by Jim Adam and Little Dale. There were 30 homemade pies by Jerry Halverson and company, and ice cream from Kwik Star. Speakers encouraged the crowd to work hard, starting right now until November 6.

Monroe Auction Service provided very good support. There were 13 caps donated. Doug Reimer of Elkader brought in $800.

That’s what happened. Thought you might like to know.
