The Landscape committee has decided to have our All Park Spring Clean-up on Saturday, March 14. Meet on the Porch at 9:30. Come help us get our neighborhood spiffy. We will remove leaves from some planted areas that have not yet been adopted and trim branches on 4 areas, as well as repaint Adopt-A-Spot marker pots. Adopt-A-Spoters do theirs and we can help with the rest. As you are traveling around our park and notice something that needs attention, please let me know.

Spaghetti Dinner and Brown Bag Auction

On Saturday night, February 8th, members and guests gathered at the Clubhouse for a Spaghetti Dinner followed by the annual Brown Bag Auction.  The evening started at 5PM.  Prepared by Patti Coble, Randi Rigsby and Samme Buck, plated and served by Cindy and Dennis Smith, Dale and Cheryl Curtis and Richard Buck. Dinner consisted of a salad, spaghetti with marinara sauce, meatballs and garlic bread.  Dessert was pineapple upside down cake baked by Randi Rigsby.  Thank you to our cashier for both events, Cora Wheeler.

Cook and Serve Team: (L to R) Patti Coble, Cindy Smith, Dennis Smith, Randi Rigsby, Richard Buck, Samme Buck, Dale Curtis, Cora Wheeler, Cheryl Curtis.

Neal and Jan Kelsoe, Guest Auctioneers!

After dinner, the highlight of the evening was kicked off with the Brown Bag Auction.  Our guest auctioneers were “Don Phoney Baloney” (Neil Kelsoe) and the grape stompin’ “Mama Mia”! (Jan Kelsoe). Patti Coble acted as Master of Ceremonies for both the dinner and the Auction and Richard Buck was Luigi, the strong arm for the Don.  Hilarity ensued as it usually does.  Bidding was enthusiastic! Our members donated many wonderful bags with great items.  No bag went for less than $25 and many for over $40.

Tom Gallaty, Lot 30

Our special auction  item, the hand sewn quilt made by Randi Rigsby was sold for $300 to Tom Gallety, Lot 30.  Thank you Tom for your generous contribution to the Bluebonnets!  

This fundraiser raised over $1700 for the Bluebonnet Auxiliary.  Final figures will be given at the February 19th Bluebonnet Meeting at 1PM. The after expenses profit on the dinner was over $180.  Unfortunately, we did not win the lottery last night, but we did raise $126 on the ticket! 

Thank you to all those who worked so hard to make this evening such a success for the Bluebonnet Auxiliary;  for all those who attended to support the event;  those who provided Auction items, and those who kept the bidding lively!   We appreciate you all!

Brown Bag Auction Item Revealed

Saturday, February 8th after the Spaghetti Dinner 

SPECIAL BROWN BAG AUCTION ITEM – REVEALED!
Each year at the Brown Bag Auction, we try and have a special item to bid on that is very unique and not in a bag!  Last year, we had a military memorial wood scroll plaque donated by the late Keith Dickman that brought in over $200.  Normally this special auction item is not revealed until the night of the auction. However, this year, we are going to reveal it in advance.  We have a distinctive, one of a kind quilt to offer for auction.  It is named the Amish Fish Quilt, named because of the colors and the nine-patch pattern. The quilt is hand quilted and beautifully sewn with variegated thread which changes colors though out the quilt. It has a nine-patch design on the front, and a fish motif on the rear in primarily purple and blue.  It won a Blue Ribbon at the Chesterfield County Fair in Virginia.  It is approximately 4 feet by 4.5 feet and has a pocket for wall hanging.  Randi Rigsby ( Lot 111), is the quilter and has donated the quilt to the Auction, a fundraiser for the Bluebonnet Auxiliary.  The Brown Bag Auction will take place after the Spaghetti Dinner on Saturday, February 8, 2020 at 5PM.
If you’d like to get a close up peek, the quilt will be available for viewing on Friday, February 7th from 1PM  until 4PM in the Clubhouse; it will be displayed again on Friday evening from 6-9PM during BINGO.  It will also be on display on Saturday from 11AM until auction time.
A special thank you to Randi Rigsby for sharing her talents with us and supporting the Bluebonnet Auxiliary Fundraiser!
