    We hope everyone had as great a time as we did at our Annual Dinner and Auction. We deeply appreciate the support of our community -- those who came to the dinner, those who donated and bid on items to the auction, those who have donated or contributed in many ways to ensure that our mission -- to preserve and share the history of our local community -- will endure. Last, but in no way least, thank you to the volunteers who worked so hard to make this a memorable event, our great "Letters Home" performers and writers, lighting and sound, and the wonderful venue -- Paradise Playhouse Banquet Hall. ...
