The Cobblestone Museum’s second annual Membership Fundraising Dinner that was held on Wednesday, May 1, was a huge success! We want to take a moment to thank the many people who made this success possible including our dedicated committee members and everyone who attended the event at the Carlton Recreation Hall. Many thanks also go out to the businesses and individuals who donated or sponsored prizes.

This year our gross revenue from our campaign was $50,690 which is a great start toward meeting our annual budget of $176,790. The event income was comprised of the membership portion of the dinner ticket and the live auction, silent auction, and raffles at the dinner. We are very pleased to note that this year’s total exceeded last year’s event by $6,381.

Special thanks to Sheriff Randy Bower who once again served as our auctioneer and did his part to keep the bidding going! Our third annual Membership Fundraising Dinner is scheduled for Wednesday, May 6, 2020 at the Carlton Recreation Hall, and we hope to see you there!
