Fundraiser at Applebees this Saturday June 28th
This Saturday we will be flipping some pancakes and scrambling some eggs in support of our beloved troops. We will gather at 7:30am to start and open for service from 8:00am till 10:00am. Please wear sneaker type shoes if you are working in the kitchen or serving. We will be cooking pancakes, eggs, sausage and serving a drink of coffee or soda all for the very low cost of $6 a ticket. Take outs will be available if someone can’t stay and eat. Tickets can be purchased in advance but can also be purchased at the door.   

If you have not ever worked this fundraiser you have missed some fun times, we have a blast! We truly need your help and need for the word to get out that we will be there to serve. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to let me know. Hope to see you Saturday.

Applebee’s address is 1005 NW 13th St, Gainesville, FL  32601

Bass Tournament: bad weather, great turnout
Within weeks after his heart operation, Art Pina was out at 3:00am setting up for his tournament. But his small army of helpers made it easier for him.  While he wanted this to be his signature event, the weather was not cooperating.  Tornado Watch. Thunderstorms with lightning.  Heavy Rain. During the event. And yet ... 38 boaters were there braving the elements for this cause that benefits those who face challenging weather every day - our troops in the middle east.  The raffle was good, the fishing was good (considering).  The tournament yielding almost twice the amount raised in any previous year. Despite the medical challenge and the weather challenge, Art Pina met the challenges and exceeded them in what we will remember as his signature event.  For more info about the tournament, see their site here.
