Letters to the Editor: September issue

Thanks for support at Rollin’ Oldies


The Samaritan Lebanon Community Hospital Auxiliary had a booth at the Rollin’ Oldies Car Club car show on Saturday, Sept. 15.  

The support we enjoyed was outstanding.

Maple bars were donated by Mega Foods in Lebanon, Safeway in Sweet Home and Sugar Vibes in Lebanon.  Great thanks to you all!

The Rollin’ Oldies Committee again gave us the best spot to sell our wares.  Thank you!

This project was a very successful endeavor which helps us to continue our support of Samaritan Lebanon Community Hospital and for our hospital auxiliary’s scholarships for east Linn County students pursuing careers in health care.

My crew of helpers included Leorah Burton, Retha Larson and Pam Wilber.  Thanks to you and thanks to all the maple bar lovers who came out to support us.

We really appreciate Lebanon Fire District for providing and cooking our hot dog supper with all the fixings, 4 Seasons Fruit and Produce Market for donating apples for the event and Mega Foods for donating 500 Otter Pops for dessert!
