We would like to express our deepest appreciation to the people in the communities of Hill Spring, Glenwood, Mountainview, Cardston and surrounding area for supporting and attending the dinner and auction. We were overwhelmed with local businesses, clubs and individuals who donated, goods, services and cash. The support we received in donations from businesses in Pincher Creek, Crowsnest Pass, Cardston, Waterton, Fort Macleod, Magrath. Lethbridge and surrounding areas absolutely exceeded our most optimistic hopes. Check out the auction page for a full list of items and services donated.
We feel special recognition is in order to the Blueridge Hutterite Colony for donating all the vegetables for the dinner, to the Hill Spring Ag Society for donating the meat and serving the meal, to Jim Woolf and those who prepared the meat, to the Hill Spring Recreation Board members who set up tables and chairs in the gymnasium and then took them down afterwards, to the Larry & Connie Gibb family for donating a steer to the Southern Alberta Livestock Exchange which was auctioned and proceeds donated to From the ❤️ of Hill Spring (view the steer auction by clicking here https://youtu.be/gpkjF51YrfY), And thank you to Frank Jenkins and Al Lively-from S.A.L.E.-for conducting the live auction, they truly took the auction to a level higher than we could have anticipated. And lastly thanks to the many people who promoted the event in any way, who sold tickets, brought desserts, took tickets at the door, who worked at the auction checkout, who cleaned and helped in so many different ways. There was always someone willing to help.
To everyone, thank you, thank you ,thank you,
From the ❤️ of Hill Spring
