Jane Anderson benefit a success

Dear Editor:

We want to extend a huge thank you for the support received for the Jane Anderson benefit. The generosity of the community is very much appreciated. The St. Francis Middle School staff, where Jane taught for 35 years, donated fabulous items for the silent auction, as well as many local businesses and individuals. Turkeys, baked goods, decorations and more were also donated. Countless hours were spent on all aspects of the event, and a special thank you to those who prepared the turkey dinner.

Thank you to North Isanti Baptist Church for allowing us to use their facilities for the event. The “Elvis” family were very helpful and did a great job of entertaining. We raised just over $20,000 and it was used to help purchase a handicap van. Since Jane was hospitalized for seven months, the financial needs are still great. The Jane Anderson benefit fund is still open at Wells Fargo banks, for those interested in making a donation. Again, thanks to all.

The Benefit Committee
Jane and Roger Anderson and family
