The count is still out, but the Rappahannock Benevolent Fund’s annual fundraiser appears to have been a big success, thanks to the generosity, time and effort of many people. Let’s start with the owners of the Washington School: Bill Walton, Allan Comp, Dan Spethmann and John Sullivan, who made the space available at no cost. Thank you.
Then, there was the Formidable “No-Snow-Day” Five: Beverly Atkins, Alice Anderson, Delma Bagley, Georgia Gilpin and Betty Mahoney, the four-year RBF veterans who do all the nitty-gritty planning and execution. As always, well done, with the help of volunteers from the shining Knights of Columbus, the many good ladies from the county offices and tech meister Barney O’Meara who organized the parking. Thank you.
To Lillian Aylor and the rest of the Unity Gospel Choir, who brought hand-clapping spiritual rhythms to the evening; to Randy Revercomb for his “walk down memory lane” impersonations; and to all those volunteers not mentioned: Thank you.
John “The Jail Bird” Kiser
