A special thanks to Dicey Horn, the local Modern Woodmen of America agent, and Ken McGrew and his assistant from McGrew Auction of Glenwood. Caddo Hills administrators and faculty members Cilla and Jay Green and Ginger Klein provided the site and the leadership for the program, while parents brought the talented children and youth who performed. Thanks to Diann Black and Jan Graves who supervised in the cafeteria kitchen, and for the delicious food prepared by Julia Bissell, Marilyn Warren, and Tana Floyd. Thank you to the businesses in Mt. Ida, Norman, and Glenwood who provided the generous certificates for donated services and for the items to auction off.
