Going above and beyond

April 17, 2015
Estherville News

If there's a theme that could describe community activities over the past week, it would be going above and beyond and serving the community.

A great example of that would be the sponsors and attendees at the Wholly Grape & Ale event Friday, April 10 at the Estherville Golf Course. It was a record fundraiser for the event, and that simply would not have happened without sponsorships. Thanks, folks. Your contributions are recognized.

Another great event was the Emmet County Nature Center banquet last Saturday at the Estherville Elks Lodge. About 140 people came to help raise money for nature education. Again, it was the sponsors who helped make the event a success. And congratulations to Laurel Hash for winning the beautiful wood canoe Alan Gage made and donated for the event.

And speaking of volunteerism, Excel Estherville Arts & Culture committee members are volunteering their time for the writers series 10 a.m. to noon today at the Estherville Area Chamber of Commerce at 620 First Ave. S. in Estherville. Reading and signing today is author Steven Michael. The committee seeks new members to help with the writers series, Music on the Square and other events. If you're interested, call the Chamber office at 362-3541. The Chamber is also looking for volunteers for the Defiance Extreme Trail Run Saturday, May 2 at Fort Defiance State Park. Help is needed to held guide runners and set up the obstacle course.

Estherville is all about volunteerism. That's what gives us a sense of community and that's what makes us great.

So if you haven't tried it yet, volunteer.

The rewards are endless.
