A few hours before the start of Saturday's Football Booster St. Patrick's Day party at the Knights of Columbus hall there were still a number of volunteers devoted to last minute details. We caught some of them in action.
From left were Chris Delair, Christina Russell (in front), Jim Facteau, Mike Russell, Jim Pryor, Carl Sorensen, Travis Dupuis and Paul Pickering. Out in the bar area the LeBlancs- Dave and Diane and their daughter, Danielle, had drink preparations all ready to go. Before the guests arrived was this impressive collection of 300 cupcakes and 100 mini brownies, made will skill by Amy Boudreau.
This year's event was again sold out, as it is almost every year, and thousands of dollars was raised for the support work of the Football Boosters, whose contributions to the football program have exceeded in worth well 'over a half a million dollars.
One of the big highlights of the annual March event, besides the great Irish fare and the festive atmosphere was the big drawing.
The grand prize of $5,000 was shared by Mary LeBlanc and her son Leon Jr. and Stacy.
The $2,000 second prize went to Rick Godin.
Three $1,000 prizes went to Patty and Ian McLear, Sam Gaff and Pat Cook's dinner group. Reggie Bishop won the $500 fourth place prize. The $250 prize winners were Zig Akiki, Chris Keniston, Paul Lefebvre and Russell Bartlett.
There were also ten folks who got the $100 price of their ticket back: Amy Arsenault, Leona Kavanagh, Laura Davison, Teneille Gonzalez, Kevin Willette, Arlene Mace and Lauri Dukette, Nicole Desmarais, Rose Courtney and Dominic Dattola, Cooper LaBarge and Rick Scranton.
