The WCA’s Red Barn was jumping on Friday night, February 10. Happily, the nonstop snow took a break so everyone could come out for a night of mystery, mayhem and delicious food. The evening incorporated a festive fundraising dinner with a fun mystery game.
The WCA is indebted to the many volunteers who gave their time and talents to make this wonderful evening happen. Heaps of applause go out to event chairperson, Amber Gove. The evening was her brainchild. Amber admits, “I could never have done it alone!” Amber’s planning committee worked behind the scene to pull it all together. This group included Mary Fanelli, Judy Hauck and Nancy Large.
The WCA is happy to help local high school and middle school students earn their community hours. To that end, Amber called upon her sons, Josiah and Avery Gove, to help set up for the party.
The fundraising dinner was prepared and donated by some of Wilmot’s best home chefs. Ably led by Rachel Seamans, this fabulous contingent of cooks, bakers and bottle washers prepared and served delicious lasagna, salad and home baked desserts. Those donating food and the kitchen crew included Laurie Bagley, Ann Davis, Kim Esposito, Hannah Howard, Adam Glass, Mary Kulacz, Sandy Messer, Michelle Robinson, Sandy Schmid, De Segerson, Nancy Schlosser, and Barbara Wiggin.
Laugh-filled mayhem was the order of the evening after a “murder” was discovered. A talented troop of local actors kept the suspense high and the questions coming. They included Dave Bettoney, Bill Burris, Bill Doody, Meg Dugan, Jeff Gill, David Guay, Judy Hauck, Nina and Bill Kozain, Nancy Schlosser, Joanne Tulonen, and Barbra Wiggin.
A final thank you goes out to all who braved the cold and enjoyed the evening.
