?? ? ? Members of the Crothersville Sesquicentennial Committee will hold its last fund-raising dinner from 4 to 8 p.m. this Saturday, August 16, at the Vernon Township/Crothersville Volunteer Fire Department.
The station is located at 200 Moore Street in Crothersville.
Two hogs will be roasted to serve what is expected to be a large crowd. More seating will be available to accommodate everyone. "We may have to bring in some picnic tables," stated Vickie Byrd, the Sesquicentennial Committee's fund-raising dinner chairman.
On the menu will be roasted hog, potato salad, baked beans, assorted salads, desserts and beverage. The price for adults and children over 12 will be $7, with a $4 charge for children 12 and under.
Live entertainment will be provided by Nell and Buck and the Country Ramblers, a popular band from the Crothersville area. They are back by popular demand, having entertained for the committee's June 21 dinner.
Also on tap is the continuing silent auction, which everyone is enjoying tremendously this summer at the dinners. "Many silent auction bidders are doing their Christmas shopping early," stated Byrd.
"The Crothersville Sesquicentennial Committee would like to express its appreciation to the community of Crothersville and those who travel from out of town who have supported our dinners since February. Had it not been for those warm-hearted, down home supporters, there might not have been a Sesquicentennial to plan for," stated Byrd.
The committee is in the final stage of the fund-raising process. Donations can be made by logging on to http://www.150YearsAgo.org and clicking on the "Commemoratives" link. There, donors can print out the souvenir/donation form and mail in their contributions.
