Greenhorn Grange in Yreka fundraiser dinner, dance and raffle Oct. 6

What is the Grange doing?

9/22/12 Yreka:

On October 6th the Greenhorn Grange in Yreka will be presenting a “Good Ole' Country Hoedown”. This is their 2012 fundraiser “Celebrating the State of Jefferson”.  The evening will feature Country Rock Acoustic music for dancing by Mike Slizewski & The Bar Chords;  a baked dessert auction by some of  the best bakers ever known;  Auctioneer Mike Matherly;  a Women in Timber Saloon;  raffle baskets so beautifully done by  the creative talents of  “Maria Messing” & side kick “Kathy Tyler" that you can’t believe. 

Grange President Tony Intiso stated “I have never seen such awesome raffle baskets – not only the baskets, but you can’t believe the grand prizes”.  He is right!  Some of the items include a Ralph Starritt original; a Savage varmint rifle; and a one of a kind quilt homemade by Jeanne Welch of Montague

Raffle baskets include items from river rafting trip for four to a massage.  There is even a tattoo gift certificate in there somewhere!

 Chairman Maria  Mesing stated:  " The surrounding  'merchants of  Siskiyou County have donated over 50 amazing items and gift certificates from their shops, restaurants and business's  to make our fundraiser absolutely awesome.  It never ceases to amaze me as I approach the many merchants and business for donations that during these troubled times when many of them are struggling and facing hardships of their own, they still open hearts and are eager and willing to give a donation.

Their spirit of love, compassion and the gift of giving,  no matter how big or small and all uniting to lend a hand to others is one of the most endearing qualities  of what  the people in Siskiyou County are made of.  It is so special to be a part of this community and to live here.

The Grange wants to take this opportunity to thank all of the surrounding merchants of Siskiyou County for their kindness, generosity and wonderful donations contributed and their support in helping out the Grange.  It is through them that we will make this a successful fundraiser.

The October 6th fundraiser will be held at the Greenhorn Grange, 300 Ranch Lane, Yreka.  The event begins at 5pm.

Tickets are on sale now $35.00 single, $65.00 per couple, which includes a free spin at the Wheel of Fortune.

A quality prime rib dinner with all of the trimmings will be featured, followed by a dessert auction.

Proceeds from the event will go to renovating the Grange hall and the Grange’s continuing fight to preserve agriculture and the family farm!  The Grange regularly donates the use of their hall to feed hot meals three days a week.

 Please come and join us for  " A Good Ole' Country Hoedown for a  "boot Kicking, fun-filled evening”.
