Fundraiser aids Gold Star Memorial marker project

Jerald Meyer presents the furnished Moss Creek log cabin dollhouse he built for the Anna-Jonesboro Garden Club to members Jean Few and Glenda McDowell. The dollhouse — 24¼ inches wide by 17½ inches deep by 21¼ inches high — comes fully furnished, even with the moose head over the fireplace. The dollhouse, valued at more than $250, is being raffled off to raise funds to install a Gold Star Family Memorial marker in the Anna-Jonesboro Garden Community Park. The raffle — tickets are one for $1 or six for $5 — ends Thursday, June 30, during the club’s garden walk and 70th anniversary party at the park; you don’t need to be present to win. The club is also accepting donations for the raffle through the mail; send a check memoed Log Cabin Dollhouse, along with your name and phone number, to Betty Sirles, AJGC Treasurer. P.O. Box 130, Alto Pass, IL 62905-0130. The Gold Star Memorial marker honors the families whose loved ones paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. The dedication ceremony is planned for Sunday, Sept. 25, which is Gold Star Mother’s Day, at the park. To make a donation toward the marker, send a check memoed Gold Star to Sirles.
