The Braxton County Rotary Club was back last Saturday. For the first time in over three years the event was back in person at the BCHS Gym and at the normal time of the 4th Saturday in March. “After two years of a virtual event and last years delayed in-person dinner in June, we are glad to be back on our regular schedule,” said Dylan Johnson, Club President. “Our crowd was back to near normal and all the comments we received were favorable.
Johnson also served as Master of Ceremonies during the event which included dinner, a silent auction and lots of prize money.
The evening began with a delicious meal prepared by Anita Miller and her crew. Rotarian Eddie Williams gave the invocation, followed by Johnson’s welcome to those in attendance.
The elimination began at 7:00 p.m. with just over 450 numbers in the running for the $1,000 cash prize. The first and every 25th number eliminated received a $25 consultation prize. At the end of the night the big prize went to Kevin Boring of Gassaway Physical Therapy.
Over 60 lots made up the silent auction. The array of quality items covered a wide array. There was everything from gift certificates to a Lazy Boy Recliner donated by Family Furniture and a chainsaw from Lockard’s. There was litterally something for everyone. “We cannot thank our supporters enough for the host of fine prizes and gift certificates that made up the auction, We also greatly appreciate those who attended and purchased tickets,” said Johnson. “Their generosity will make it possible for to our Club tp award at least $10,000 in scholarships to BCHS graduates.”
