SALC to host winter gala

How does a chicken in wine sauce with baby potatoes, green beans, lettuce salad, dessert and wine sound? Or a live auction of local art and craft items? To find out, plan to attend Spring Ahead Learning Center’s (SALC) Winter Gala.

On Jan. 21, SALC will host its Second Annual Winter Gala at the Lime Springs Community Center. Social hour will begin at 6:30 p.m. Catered by Dorene and Butch Burnikel, a candlelit chicken dinner will be served at 7:00 p.m.

Following dinner, a live auction of local art and craft items including quilts and art work will be held.

Organizer of the event, Libby Schwade commented, “Spring Ahead Learning Center is excited to be sponsoring the gala again this year. Last year we had a lot of fun and raised a lot of money for the Center. This community continues to be supportive of this project and we hope to see community members at the Gala. The evening will be similar to last year’s event with changes and more opportunities to support this project. Come enjoy a great night!”

So far, the Finance Committee has raised $112,000 of the SALC’s $130,000 goal. The proceeds will be used to buy equipment and supplies for the Center.

The School Board is finalizing the easement with the City of Lime Springs for parking at the Center. Bids will be let as soon as the easement is completed.

Tickets are $30 each and can be purchased from Duane Johnson at C US Bank or Libby Schwade by calling 563-566-2626.

As of this week, items on the auction include: Twins Tickets and Gear from C US Bank, two halves of hog donated by A&K Feed and Grain and Johnson Farms, quilted items from the Thursday Hookers, art from Tanya Riehle, pottery from The Clay Studio, a quilted item purchased and donated by Steve and Jill Johnson, a clock made by Claire Anderlik and donated by Jerry & Linda Johnson, jewelry by Tracy Rice, a quilt made by Betty Roesler, a gift from Holstroms, a package from Wemark Chiropractic and Sarah Moore, an item made by Ellen Klomp, a canoe paddle made by Mark Hagen and a quilt rack made by Todd Knobloch.
