Patricia Sampson brought up one fact that was amazing about the HDVS: They have successfully covered help phone lines 24 hours a day 7 days a week for 30 years! Wow, that is doing service beyond even reason. Robin and I are board members for the HDVS and have been impressed with a community of workers and volunteers it takes to make this program work.
Proclamations were made by the City of Eureka through Virginia Bass. The County by Bonnie Neely. And the state by Patty Berg and Patricia Wiggins through Connie Stewart. They were all awesome in their presentations.
Connie Stewart took over the events fund raising silent auction on her own when things lagged. She went and started limits and pushed people to push auction prices forward. It was a great night for the HDVS. Connie was animated and challenged the audience and they responded with bids. Thanks Connie.
