Soup Supper Big Success!
" I have been informed from the Hamburg ladies, the same group that worked tirelessly to put on a good feed, that the fundraiser yesterday made it's goal and that a new gazebo will be ordered this week. In a month's time, that gazebo will be in place at the Hamburg point park, SW corner of Hamburg, it too will be stained white for all to see and enjoy.
I want to thank all those that assisted in the making of this event and to all who stopped by and indulged in some find home made dishes. It was a long day for most everyone involved who made this event a success.
Most all of the improvements planned for Hamburg this year will be accomplish and continuation will continue come Spring. We now have the Methodist Church that was gifted to the Village of Hamburg added to that list. The Village Trustees have already entered into discussion for our village Christmas with Santa be held there and the meal at the town hall.
Thanks again to all for attending and contributing to our event. So many local businesses contributed so much it was overwhelming. We of Hamburg appreciated it very much."
