OCTOBER 2018
October is “National Country: Music :Month”

 

Fall is such a pretty time of year with all the wonderful autumn colors on display Mother Nature was not so nice last month when we got all the rain that caused wide spread damage and hardship in many our areas. The WWCMA Board voted to donate $500.00 toward the relief efforts and Sharon Dewitt and Harvey Kirking presented the check to the Bethel Boutique in Westby run by Rev. Daines. Our August dance was held at Concordia Ball Room and lil' Dale and the Legends played for us and in September it was held at the log Cabin in Bangor and the legends and Outlaws Band played. We were treated to great classic country music and two great jams as well. At our August event, Jim Olson donated a jewelry set that was raffled off that generated $74.00. Gladys Hutchison donated a glass cowboy boot painting for our September dance that brought in $76.00. Thank you Gladys and Jim for you special donation items.

The family of Lucille Ellefson donated some of her western jewelry to the WWCMA. We will be doing silent auctions at the next few dances with the proceeds going back to the WWCMA. Lucille loved country music and she will be missed.

This month our new WWCMA banner will be on display. I would like to thank Pete Perkins for his suggestion and doing the leg work of getting bids and members opinions on different proposed signs. The old sign will be displayed at our sign in table.

Gladys Nichols, thank you for bringing in the old pictures of past presidents and events. I have copies if anyone is interested in looking at them. We hope to keep accumulating these types of things and have a person be like a historian for our club.

We welcome the new members and appreciate the members who have renewed too. Your memberships can be paid at our dances each month or you can mail them to: Linda Geddes at 25293 Musket Rd, Kendall, WI 54638. Dues are $10.00 per person or $15.00 per married couples or couples with same address.  I was asked to let you know that Ray and Terri Chambers were in a horrible car accident recently. Terri is back home but Ray will be in the hospital and then going to a nursing home and will be there for a long time the way is sounds. The other CWCMA will be doing a benefit on January 19, 2019 from noon to 11pm at the Cedar Shack. Susie Hamilton from the CWCMA is looking for people who might be interested in putting a basket together for a basket raffles to help raise money.  If you are interested, please contact Susie at 715-423-0793 Ray is a drummer and has played with many bands over the years.

I would also again like to thank the people who help at our dances each month and to the board for their dedication to your WWCMA.
