MCRC Returns To The Sunnybrook!

Last evening, my wife and I attended the area(s) 1, 2, and 4 fundraiser "MCRC Returns To the Sunnybrook".

There were people from all over the county there and the event was packed. Entertainment was by "Pierce Entertainment", who's mix of live singers and recorded music was nothing short of grand.

The food table was an international smorgasbord of appetizers: tortellini on skewers with 2 different sauces, a cheese platter with several cheese choices, Swedish meatballs with traditional "Swedish" sauce and Italian tomato sauce, Greek dolmas (grape leaves stuffed with lamb and rice, my personal favorite of the fare), tomato pie and pita wedges with hummus. I was quite satisfied with the 70 or 80 dolmas that I ate, along with trying everything on the table. The caterer, "The Food Muse" kept the table full for the entire night. It seemed like there was no end to the amount of food coming from the kitchen.

Republican Commissioner, Bruce Castor, was the "emcee" for the evening, and introduced the state house and senate delegation in attendance, along with the county row officers. Sheriff Durante was under the weather and sent Jim Saring, his IT manager, as his representative.

All in all, the evening looked to be a success. There were over 200 in attendance at any given time (people came and went during the evening), a testament to the hard work done by the area leaders who hosted the event.

Special kudos must be given to Gail Yoder, who worked tirelessly to make this event the success it was. Congratulations, Gail...I'm so looking forward to next years event. Keep up the good work!

This was truly a great event. The best moment of the night was when I heard someone whistling this tune on the way in:
