Card of Thanks – Rustic Lore Days Committee – 9-17-2014

What an awesome weekend we had for our Rustic Lore Days celebration!! It’s hard to know where to start thanking people.

We are especially thankful to Tom & Judy Knox for accepting the honor of 2014 Grand Marshals. To the 2013-14 Miss GC Court – Queen Isabella Nadeau, Princess Kaitlin Konder and Princess Natasha Rassbach – thanks for doing a great job of representing our community for the past year. Congratulations to the new court – Queen Allison Curvello, Princess Marne Lewis and Princess Ashley Holmquist. Best wishes for your journeys over the next year.

To Jim and Janene Meisser and the employees of Hiawatha National Bank – our greatest appreciation for the awesome kick-off picnic. The car show was awesome, as usual – our hats off to the Rods & Rides Car Club and thanks to car owners from near and far for participating. We’d like to acknowledge Elle Wood for all the hard work she puts into the Brenda Cassellius-Wink Kickball Tournament. Thanks to all of the kickballers who gave up their Saturday to play and help contribute to this great cause. Thank you to all the local community organizations that hosted various events or had food stands. Your contributions all added to the success of the weekend. Thank you to our countless volunteers that help with the dances and the parade, with set up and tear down. We appreciate our family and friends that are coerced into helping – you know who you are!! Special thanks to Dr. Lance Albrightson, Family ChiroCare for the use of his property and electricity for the dances.

Thanks to the GC area businesses who helped out with the selling of raffle tickets and to everyone who purchased them! The money from the sale of the tickets is essential for the continuation of our celebration, so we appreciate everyone who supports us in this way. We will start planning the 2015 celebration in February, and we always welcome new members.
