Submitted By Joella Thompson
The trailers have moved off-site, decorations have been put away, and the bills have been paid. It was with much pride that the Candle Lighters were able to fund the following proposals with the monies earned with their work at "The Haunted Shopping Mall", our 2012 Ghost House, held in October.
Recipients of awards in our 43rd year were:
The City of Fremont Senior Center ($2813.71)
The Viola Blythe Center ($4106.96)
Irvington High School ($9847.34)
Fremont Stage 1 ($6519.80)
Music for Minors II ($3168.15)
In all, the Candle Lighters presented to Tri-City area recipients a total of $44,879.99 to fund requested proposals approved by the membership in June.
At the luncheon, election of the new board was voted on and approved. Newly elected board members for 2013-2014 year are: Terri Schinckel, President; Claire Douglas, First Vice President (Site); Joella Thompson, Second Vice President (Publicity); Sue Sauvageau, Third Vice President (Sponsors); Diann Nelson, Recording Secretary; Sharon Candelario, Corresponding Secretary; Norma Cutter, Treasurer; Patty Grant, Communications (Gazette); Marguerite Meyer, Membership; Nancy Schroeder and Sandy Strong, Social; and Cathy Leslie, Parliamentarian.
This year's Ghost House theme will be "Camp Fear" and plans are already being made to create another family friendly, fun experience.
