On behalf of the Flagg Township Museum Board of Directors I would like to thank the donors, volunteers and attendees for making our first-ever “Champagne brunch” fundraising event at SALT251 on Sunday, March 31 a success.
The beautiful setting and the delicious brunch provided by SALT251 were enjoyed by all who attended. The entertainment – “From Hickory Nuts to Salt” – was especially impressive having been written by Dianne Jenner from the Vince Carney Community Theater group. The talented volunteer actors – Gary Mason, Noah Carmichael, Doug Kroupa, and Jan Devore - made a little of Rochelle’s history come alive for the audience. The variety of silent auction offerings inspired a nice response from bidders. Everything together made the event very special.
In particular I would also like to thank the donors to our silent auction. The museum is grateful to the boards of the Vince Carney Community Theater, Flagg Township Museum, Joseph F. Glidden Homestead & Historical Center, and the Rochelle Park District for their generous donations. Thanks also to Gretchen Bain, Bobbie Colbert, Terry Dickow, Mary Erdman, Dianne Jenner, Kathy Johnson, Jackee Ohlinger, Sally Sawicki, Dave Schabacker, Jan Stocking, Steve Strang and Arlyn Van Dyke for their generous donations.
And thank you to all who attended. You are what makes a difference. The Flagg Township Museum is grateful for your support and we hope you had a good time.
Flagg Township Museum board president
