Sno-Valley Seniors thank community efforts for successful anniversary dinner

The Sno-Valley Seniors held their successful second anniversary dinner Saturday, Oct. 24. Over 120 diners enjoyed the evening at the Tolt Middle School with a delicious prime rib meal, the food and cook both generously donated by Remlinger Farms.

   Cedarcrest Honor Society members efficiently and graciously served. Margie Qualls and Jeanie Magdlin emceed the evening and called out the winners of the raffle prizes. Prizes were donated by Puget Sound Energy, Claramay Humphrey, and the following Duvall businesses: Kallander's, Gardens and Sunspaces, Valley Mailbox, Country Collections, Coast to Coast, and CC Espresso. Their generosity helped raise funds for the evening and is much appreciated.

   The seniors also want to thank the businesses who paid for extra tables: Valley Community Bank, Puget Power, Fall City Family Foods, Whitfields Insurance, and Sterling Landscape.

   The excellent dinner was followed by entertainment by talented Valley performers, including Tom Worley, Lisa Ryan, Rachel Reisz, and the Tap Troop: Katy Gunderson, Janice Walters, Jennifer Nelson, Candace Shepard, and Kara Powell. The last performer was a mystery until he finished singing and playing "Fools Rush In." Then he was introduced as Joe Wolf, newly-hired director of the Sno-Valley Senior Center.

   Many seniors worked hard to prepare the festive evening, with a special thanks to Pat and Bud Busser. The success of the fundraiser was due to all the donations of food, cooks, prizes, and work. The many seniors who enjoy the facilities and programs at the center thank all the community members who contributed to the Anniversary Dinner.
