To the Editor:
The Moose Poker Run was once again unbelievable because of all the great people who participated and those who gave up their time to make it that way.
I have to thank all the stop area people; Moose Lodge #1954; VFW Post #4353, KOA Campground; American Legion Post #136; Ragged Ass Saloon and Low Key Tiki.
A very special thank you to all the dealers who gave their time all day and the ticket sellers: Dona Smith; bartenders of the Moose Lodge, Ann Bouros and Frank Taugner; Linda Mitchell for printing; Sheri Dube and Wendy Panse for posters; and Paul Alexander and Rocky Lane for running the rescue trailer back and forth.
A big thank you to all the people who gave donations: Ragged Ass Saloon, American Legion, John Restow, John and Mary Clemens, Winn-Dixie, Moose Club, Sandy Odor, Women of the Moose, Jane Hartman, Gary Bevard and Bill Marino.
I can't put into words how much I appreciate a special group of musicians called The Last Resort Band, who donated their time and talents for us.
Meghan McCoy, editor of the Eagle, bless you for the publicity and Jodi Nelson for keeping St. James City Civic Center alerted.
Bless all of you who rode tickets for those that couldn't be there and all of you phenomenal people that participated with such fun and enthusiasm. I hope I have thanked everyone and I wish everyone a great 2012.
God bless all of you.
