Three Ways the United Way Supports the Fond du Lac Community



Monday Morning

We had 19 members at Monday morning’s meeting, including our own member, Tina Potter, as our guest speaker.  Gary Miller was able to put together an InterClub to the New Holstein Spanferkel on Monday night. “Happy Bucks” were offered by Ron Seidl for his 60th high school reunion, Harry Schneider for surviving his Door County golf weekend, Bob Kahl for surviving his most recent babysitting engagement, Dave Twohig for a successful move of the Habitat ReStore over the weekend and Gary Ring for the birth of his first grandson over the weekend.  Sharon Kollman was the 50/50 Raffle winner and she drew the Five of Hearts, a $5 winner. Nicely done Sharon. The next drawing (9/15) will have 11 cards with two pay cards and a pot of at least $552.
