Sterling Days festivities held June 2nd
As part of the Sterling Days festivities held June 2nd, we presented the American Legion - Post 140 a check for $900. Some of the funds were used for the BBQ. The remaining funds are to help two 4-H club's sewing kids who are making five "Quilts of Valor" for Sterling Korean War Veterans. These kids can be seen in the background of the check presentation picture. They are building the quilts then will have to be sent out to have the backing put on professinally. These quilts will be presented to the Vereans during the Veterans Day program a the Sterling School in November. The second picture is Andy T. working the grill at the Sterling Days. It was a beautiful day. The last event MFC helped sponsor was the dance that was held Saturday night. MFC raised $500 to make dance tickets. All tickets were given away or placed into the auction to raise additional funds for the community. The entertainment was provided by the band "5 Mile Bridge".
