Dinner tickets will be available at the door for the Appreciation Dinner being held in honor of Bob Hetherwick at the Moose Lodge, this Saturday, January 23, 2010.


A delicious Prime Rib Dinner will be served with tickets costing $35 each, (children five and under free) and raffle tickets will be sold  along with silent and live auctions. Please contact Bob King at 846-4701 or Joe Busch at 693-0405,  to purchase tickets ahead of time or to make monetary donations.


All 300 tickets have been sold for the 2008 Kawasaki TERYX 750 4x4 thanks to many generous people.  The drawing will be held Saturday night. The winner will pay sales tax, license fees and an optional extended warranty.


One of the most exciting items available at the live auction will be a week's accommodations in  Costa Rica, compliments of Doug and Linda Wilson of Gridley at their beautiful, palatial home. A video of the area will be shown the night of the dinner.


No host cocktails will begin at 5 p.m., with the dinner beginning at 6 p.m. Take-out dinners will also be available.


The prime rib will be barbecued by the team of Joe Garcia, Mike Kossow, Jake Stowe, Dan Burleson and Steve Dowd. Beans will be prepared by Clarence Williams and Jon Moss is in charge of the rice for the dinner.


The event is being called an APPRECIATION DINNER, because Bob's friends appreciate all that he did for the community, besides being such a terrific friend.
