To The Daily Sun,
This letter is my attempt to thank every one on behalf of me, Suzanne Taggett, my husband, Mike, and our sons Charles, Andrew, Joshua, Arron and their families for the kindness shown to me by the many people who attended a Lakes Region Ice Racing Club Race on Feb. 15, and a ham and bean dinner, silent auction and raffle hosted by the Wicwas Lake Grange on Feb. 21.
I am very grateful for the caring and support shown to me, and was just floored by the number of people who came to the benefit dinner, many of whom I had never met before.
I would also like to express my gratitude to the many individuals and businesses who willingly donated items that were auctioned or raffled during the dinner that helped raise $3,128. Thanks also goes to members of the Lakes Region Ice Racing Club, the drivers, their fans and race co-sponsor Lou's Custom Exhaust for donating all the proceeds from the race, plus presenting me a check for $2,000.
A special thanks goes out to Garden Island Cleaners who was inadvertently left out of a listing of donors that was previously recognized in a thank you letter published on behalf of the Wicwas Lake Grange 292.
In the days following the race and dinner, we received many cards and notes with more generous donations. The combined proceeds of the benefits and other donations have allowed us to pay off our bills and given Mike and me the chance to enjoy a week-long Caribbean cruise.
I just wanted to let people known that the kindness they have shown have put a smile on my face and taken a financial burden off our backs.
Suzanne Taggett & family
