> The Rotary Club's 15th annual Cherry Tree Celebration, held Feb. 24 at Kah-Nee-Ta, drew a record crowd and raised in excess of $20,000, according to Dick Anderson, event chairman.
All 300 tickets to the event were sold out. The day included a golf tourney, silent and live auctions, dinner and dance.
Anderson said the money raised will allow Rotary to fund its three projects: hearing aids for Sparrow child Kaegan Prevett, and expansion of the Faith Trails riding arena near the Pelton turnoff, and expansion and remodeling of the Jefferson County Food Bank's new facility.
"We extend a big thank you to all those who donated items for the auction, the bidders and participants," Anderson said.
