Club organizes town's largest fundraising event

ORWELL - On Oct. 24, Orwell's biggest fundraiser of the year took place for the seventh year in a row-the town's Fortnightly Cafe is always a big success.

"We transform the school's cafateria into a romantic restaurant with lots of wonderful atmosphere," according to Joan King, Fortnightly Club president.

"Loretta Lee, who did a wonderful job, was acting president for this gala affair. Linda Martin, our Fortnightly Cafe' committee chair, did an excellent job as well as everyone who participated," King said.

All volunteers (members and their spouses) who made this dinner happen, worked hard to make it an enjoyable community event.

"This social event starts off with a cocktail hour with many appetizers, sparkling apple cider, ginger ale and good friends. From there, everyone is escorted to their tables where they are served a scrumptious meal and then topped off with a delicious dessert. Everyone enjoys this annual night out on the town," King said.

"I want to thank all who worked on this fundraiser and all the community members who attended. By attending and working this event, you have all had a part in helping our community. We hope to see you next year for another great evening of food, fun and friends," she said.
