The Harney County Cattlewomen would like to thank the community for their continued support of our annual breakfast / silent auction fundraiser that is held Saturday morning during the county fair, every year – thank you for coming! All proceeds from the breakfast and coordinating silent auction go to local students as they purse continued education at a college, university, vocational, or trade school. Again in  2014, five scholarships of $500 each were awarded– this only possible with all the donations and help at our fundraiser. We would especially like to thank the cooks, known as the “Drewsey” crew – though not all reside there. Every year they graciously begin cooking in the wee hours of the morning during such a busy weekend (as well as doing the large task of setting up, taking down, and cleaning the grills)– thank you!! We want to thank Hollingsworth of Ontario and Intermountain Community Bank for their substantial cash donations. Thank you to  C & B Sanitary and Ed Staub & Sons donate a dumpster and propane fuel every year. We thank Vern Brown for donating his great Master of Ceremonies services and Ryan Day for his general assistance and hosting us at the H.C. Senior Center. We also appreciate Oster Professional Group allowing us to use their office as a drop site for items for the silent auction. Thanks as well to the Cattlewomen who donate their time and often supplies to the breakfast and silent auction. Again, thanks to the community for attending – we hope to see you next year.
