A benefit auction was held April 30 for the purpose of helping Dorothy Carpenter pay her medical bills. Organized by Samtha & Wayne Hollingsworth, it went off with a bang. A huge crowd turned out and bidding was spirited. In all, thanks mostly to Sam and Wayne, $3462.83 was collected.
May 26, the Hollingsworths presented a check for the entire amount collected, to Mediserve, where the MRI was owed. There is still a hill to climb, but Dorothy has help now and the rest is up to her. We all wish her a speedy recovery. The community is to be commended for it's generosity and caring, even in many cases where they didn't even know Dorothy.
