Santa Day fundraiser a success for community center

Dear Editor:

The Braham Area Community Center task force wishes to thank everybody who made our Santa Day fundraiser such a huge success.

The hall was beautifully decorated. Santa heard the children’s wishes, with help from Mrs. Claus. The ladies had baked their goodies for sale. Wonderful live music was provided by church groups from several denominations.

Young people, including 4-H’ers, did a myriad of jobs. Ticket sellers did their part, for advance sales as well as direct purchase.

Santa’s gift shop was set up and gave everybody an opportunity to shop for their loved ones. The children really enjoyed that, and were able to get their purchases gift-wrapped.

The early birds who helped to carry in and carry out at the end of the day, the all important clean up crew, those who donated money, all helped to make the day.

If you came and enjoyed the waffles, thank you. St. Peter and Paul Church provided the ideal location without which it couldn’t have taken place.

We all came together as a united community to advance the day when the Braham Area Community Center will be a reality. It’s coming, folks.
