Just before I left my house this a.m. I was watching the TV that was showing all the destruction of hurricane Irene as it traveled up the east coast. But here in Anamoose it was a beautiful day for our 3rd Annual Corn Feed/Silent Auction. The forecast had been for rain, but there was not a cloud in the sky. About 180 people came to eat corn, hamburgers, hot dogs, & bars & bid on the Silent Auction items.
There were 19 people that volunteered their time for the event. Some picked corn Thursday night, some made hamburger patties Saturday morning, & today many grilled hamburgers & hot dogs, cooked corn at the Senior Center, served the food & root beer floats, & helped with the Silent Auction. Those root beer floats really hit the spot as the temp got in the low 80s.
At 11 a.m. Francis Seefeld pepped us up with his accordion. At noon Danelle & Heide Olson & their 2 daughters entertained us with their musical selections.
There were 59 items for the Silent Auction. They ranged from large items, like a ton of Anhydrous, & exercise machines, to smaller items like toys, purses, pictures, many cash cards, etc.
