Made the big splash a big success

Dear Gary,

To the Tonasket Citizens: The Big Splash BBQ was such a success and so much fun. We accomplished our goal of promoting the Tonasket Water Ranch and raised $5000 as well.

This could not have happened without the amazing volunteer core we have in our little community. Under Linda Black’s guidance, the food preparation, the musicians, the servers, the grillers, the entrance folks, the set-up and take-down, was all done by volunteers that just said yes and jumped in when asked.

We are so thankful to live in a community where we can all come together to enjoy ourselves and support a local cause. You were all wonderful, but we would like to say a special thanks to our very own Bud McSpadden who can make every event memorable and to the High School Volunteers – 17 of them supervised by Anita Ausmussen – who arrived in black and white ready and eager to do their job. That was a wonderful way for the school to show off what a good job they are doing.
