The 2022 Veterans Memorial Health Care Foundation’s Christmas Fantasy made a big return last weekend after three years with large numbers of Christmas trees and silent auction items on display. The event was held last weekend, November 11-14 at the Allamakee County Fairgrounds Pavilion, and was a huge success thanks to all of the overwhelming community involvement.
A near number of auction items were donated to this year’s Fantasy by area businesses and individuals. The 114 auction items were displayed and auctioned on a silent auction bid to the highest bidder on Monday night at 7 p.m.
Trees on display during this 31st annual Foundation Fantasy highlighted nearly 50 full size Christmas Trees decorated by individuals, businesses and many groups around the area. Many, many individuals worked, served, and donated to this community celebration.
The event was planned and sponsored by the Veterans Memorial Health Care Foundation including Rose Beardmore, Sue Blagsvedt, Mitch Duncklee, Patty Goltz, Kevin Hanson, Judy Herman, Jane Kallevang, Ardie Kuhse, Craig Lensing, Jay Mathis, Nona Sawyer, Nancy Schoh, Kim Sylvester, Matt Teslow and Kay Zimmerman, assisted by Karen and Bob Swenson, Julie Thompson, Vicky Bloxham and Pat Pettingill.
