On August 23, Judi Wutzke of …and BOOKS, too! in Clarkston, WA coordinated a fundraiser for Clearwater Valley fire victims and fire fighters. The event took place at the Lewiston Elks Lodge.
Prior to the event, donations were collected at …and BOOKS, too! and the Elks Lodge. Donated items included frozen meat, produce, dishes, small appliances, cleaning items and bedding. Almost $4,000 were raised through donations and a silent raffle.
Attendees enjoyed live music, cake and ice cream to go with their generous helping of community spirit.
Judi and her staff managed all this good citizenship the same month that they hosted a signing with author Bob Hayes (Journey to Recovery) and a three-day event with Jane Kirkpatrick, whose latest book is The Memory Weaver. On top of all that, the store had to work around power outages!
