The Melba Olde Tyme 4th of July is upon us! Are you ready to win a quilt? If you haven’t bought your raffle ticket yet, plan to come and take a break from the heat early. You can get one ticket for $1 or increase your chances of winning this beautiful quilt and get 6 tickets for just $5. And don’t forget – it was made and donated by the Bluebird Quilt Studio and Marilyn Nelson in Nampa.
We will be serving our traditional chicken dinner with homemade potato salad, baked beans, coleslaw, rolls and cake. There will also be plenty of cold water and lemonade. The lunch will cost $8 per person, with children 4 and under free. We hope to see you there! This dinner is one of our main fund-raisers for the year and in these uncertain times, we really need your support by having dinner with us and taking part in the quilt raffle. The lunch will begin at 11:30 when the parade is over. The posters state that the quilt raffle will be drawn at 1:00 p.m., but it will probably be closer to 2:00 to give you additional time to purchase raffle tickets. You do not need to be present to win. We will call the winner. This quilt would make a great comforter for your queen bed and will feel really nice this fall when the temperatures drop.
We could still use volunteers to help with the dinner prep and clean-up. It takes a lot of work and hours to cook dinner for 200 people. Could you possibly help? Drop by the center around 9:00 or 1:00 and we’ll put you to work for a couple hours. Or do you have a favorite cake recipe you’d like to make to help with the dinner? Give us a call (495-2168) Tuesday between 8:00 a.m. and noon or Thursday between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.
