Thank you to all and we hope to do it again next year. Look for our Spring car wash to be announced in paper. Thank you all for taking interest in our school. Thank you QES PTA PICK UP AFTER YOUR DOG AGAIN WITH THE DOG WASTE AND TRASH? We are not your dumpsite! How many letters and signs does it take for you to get some manners? We are not your mother. Residents and visitors alike! If you can no longer bend over, they make a very reasonably priced tool to help you. Keeping America beautiful starts at home! Full-time Resident R. Nelson THANK YOU FROM OPERATION HERO COMFORT I would like to extend a huge Thank You to everyone who made the Silent Auction sponsored by Operation Hero Comfort a huge success. Thrivent for Lutherans matched the first $500.00 raised and provided volunteers to help with the set up and tear down. They have been a great support over the years. We had many great volunteers, wonderful items donated by many businesses, vendors and individuals. The people who bid on the items were great. We change locations this year to the new Community Center and did not have as many people come to bid as previous years. I hope that will improve next year. Each box we send is $14.85 for postage. The money we made will go toward postage and to purchase items that are requested but not donated. Here is the list of everyone who donated.
