Successful Walker Day
Hello my fellow Walkerites,
Cheers to another successful Walker Day. Walker Day is a great time for renewing friendships, making new friends and swapping mountain stories, (that usually end with “and we just barely made it out alive”). We title Walker Day as “A fund raiser”, but, it’s really a community celebration or pseudo block party. Every dollar we get in is just a bonus.
Special thanks to all the usual suspects that automatically show up to lend a big hand at virtually ALL these events. We also had a good number of new faces helping as well. I believe we served 250 lunches, pulled in $1300 from donated yard sale and silent auction items, over $1000 in merchandise sales and $167 form the 50/50 raffle. This year, we added a small art fair in the park that raised around $400.
I’d like to personally thank this years community sponsors like Gene Tomek for once again donating all the food, Conrad Walton for donating all the soft drinks under his company sponsorship, “survivor.com”, and the Walker Community Church for donating all the water, (they meet every Sunday off Sunday School Rd). Corporate sponsors were Trader Joe, Walmart, Fry’s, and Costco. They always give $25-$50 for miscellaneous supplies. And as always, thanks to the “Guys With Day Jobs” for providing the music!
We will soon set a date for next years Walker Day so you can mark it on your calendars. Hope to see you all again next year.
