Cardington Jamboree generates funds for charity, fun for all
By Evelyn Long -
Judy Graham and Kim Burns, co chairmen of the Vision Committee which organized the Community Jamboree held September 30, expressed their joy at the success of the event.
The games, silent auction and live auction generated a total of $2500 which will be given to the Clothes Closet and the No Limits Outreach. Larry Wigton served as the auctioneer.
The event, sponsored by St. Paul Lutheran Church, Cardington, was held in the Community Park in Cardington.
Games organized by the committee were the bean bag toss, macaroni smash, Lollypop tree, pumpkin painting, face painting, cupcake walk, clothes pin drop, football toss, corn hole, pin the eyes on the pumpkin, bobbing for apples, donut munching, pumpkin chunkin’, duck pond, bubble blowing and whipped cream game.
The 30 theme baskets made for the silent and live auction were made by Graham and others in the church.
Members of the church helped with all of the games and the auction.
Food was served from the Community Building and was donated by church members. The food was served by the family of Kim Burns.
Entertaining was the Dixieland Band from the Kroc Center, Ashland. Three members of the band have Cardington roots, Carol Ebert, her son, Neil Ebert and her grandson, Chad Ebert, all play in the band which plays every Wednesday at the Kroc Center.
Also appearing at the jamboree was Ted Williams, the “Golden Voice,” who greeted visitors during the three hour event and then spoke briefly from the bandstand stage.
Graham and Burns thank all who made this a success.
