web two
Keeping with the patriotic fervor that has engulfed the Untied States in recent months, the colors red, white and blue joined the more traditional Christmas tree decorations on at least one of the nearly two dozen trees decorated for the annual Pioneer Memorial Hospital Hospice Benefit Auction. It isn't certain which tree Marge Pierce bid on, but she was not the only person to inspect the tree created by the Grizzly Mtn Long Rifles. A total of 23 beautifully decorated Christmas trees and 22 even more beautiful, hand-crafted quilts were auctioned off, raising nearly $25,000 for Hospice.
