I am very excited to share with you the success of the bake sale held on April 1st at the biscuit ad gravy benefit breakfast. We were able to raise just over $400. Many people contributed to the success of this bake sale. Donations poured in from all over the county and many from neighboring counties as well. Members of the Bluff Creek Wranglers 4H group played a huge roll in the success of this sale. Not only did the members provide baked goods for this event, they also provided an phenomenal sales team! Many thanks to all of you who made this bake sale a success. The money raised will help purchase a border to be placed around playground area at the Pilot Mound City Park.
On April, 1, 2017, after a 2 year hiatus, Mirza Lodge 609 again hosted its biscuit and gravy benefit breakfast for the Pilot Mound Fire Department. The crowd was steady throughout the event, and included friends and neighbors from all over the county and beyond. Free will donations brought in $3300 which will be used to purchase truck equipment and fire gear for new members. Sean Whalen, PMFD fire chief said, “This was a great event, and I’m so pleased that the Lodge decided to continue the breakfast. We’d like to thank the Lodge and all of its members, especially Deb and Dan Baker, and everyone from the area who stopped by that day. In addition to the money raised, these events foster awareness of the need for rural fire protection, and help build a sense of community.”
