50th Birthday Dance – Bar, Security and Taxi Thank You
Thank you is our way of saying your contribution was noticed. In this case, I have an opportunity to say Thank You to so many helpful people, the 50th Birthday Dance could not have happened without the fifty or so volunteers that helped before, during and after the event. The Gold River Golf Club took on the task of providing the bar for the Dance. I was way out of my comfort zone. So, a great big Thank You to Glen and Angie Frame for helping me with organizing and setting up the event. I know I couldn’t have done it without your expertise and guidance.
I was so thankful to have the crew of young men help with moving the skids of alcohol from the liquor store and then again down to the arena on Saturday. You guys jumped up with no notice and I am grateful to you for taking time to help.
The Security crew headed by Lightle Management provided a great service for the dance. Thank you so much to Scott Patrick, David Kornylo, Alyshia Boyle, Bob Lightle, and also Terry Robertson, Gord Unger, David Unger and Geoff Unger for stepping up. Another great big Thanks to Doug Kennedy and the COPS for providing the Taxi service from the event. It was great to see so many cars having a sleepover that night.
A huge thank you to all of the volunteers who gave their time to work the bar both setting up and serving throughout the evening. Each of you are so appreciated. Thanks to John and Betty Frame, Bob and Colleen Lightle, Trudy Annand, Barb and Aubrey Brinkman, Chris and Dennie Bohn, Ric Begon, Mick and Deb Mann, Joyce Unger, Shannon Unger, Judy McLean, Denise Watt, Ray Hammell, Jean Beer, Grace Hoffman, Roger Steele, Veanna Johnston, Ellena Gjesdal, Richard Parkes and our tireless ringleader for the weekend, Lisa Jones.
I’m happy to report that the golf course was successful in making a profit on the event which will help us continue to look after the maintenance issues as needed on the course.
Volunteers make all things possible and I’m proud to say that Gold Riverites give of themselves whenever and wherever it’s needed.
Thanks so much for your support,
Lynne Unger and Gold River Golf Club Executive
