German Settlement Update Issue #6

BARN DANCE FUND RAISING AND FAMILY FUN TIME

The Barn Dance fund raising held in the Mike and Evonne Ganz’s barn last October 6 was enthusiastically attended by about 120 of all generations. People began gathering and eating German food about 6:30 p.m. with lively music by Jim Schwenk, Lynn Johnson, and George Bruhn. The Mike and Eddie Band of the “Trigger Happy” Band kept us dancing again like last year. The barn dance brought in $1,666.91 before expenses. Many thanks to all who helped make this 2nd annual event a big success.
