Citizen of the Year Dinner
This past Saturday was a whirlwind for us. We all shuffled downtown pretty early to start cooking and decorating for the Citizen of the Year Dinner. Since Hansel was last year’s winner, he had the honor of putting on the event along with the North Fork Boosters.
By an hour before the dinner 30+ pot pies were made, potato leek soup was whipped up in giant pots, the BBQ was ready for grilling spiced pork and the salad bar was set with five types of greens along with several toppings. Dinner ended up being served second since Juliet Thrapp’s desserts from Wildflour bakery (Served by Roz Thrapp) caught the eyes of everyone walking in. Most were sold way before the majority of people even sat down. Who doesn’t love dessert first?
Hansel passed the crown to Mark Logee, a retired Director of the Chawanakee School District Maintenance, Building and Transportation department. He has been nominated before, and took the win this year because his “helpful ways, giving spirit, and countless hours of volunteer work help our community to be a better place.” Read more about Mark here.
Good Medicine played before and after the ceremony and didn’t stop until the last chair was taken down and the last plate was washed. As always, what a show. A big thanks to them for the entertainment, and for everyone who helped set up and take down the event.
It was wonderful to celebrate with so many of you.
