To the Times of Ti:
Many thanks to everyone who came out on Jan. 5 to support the fundraiser for the Best Fourth in the North committee at The Pub.
For old time’s sake, Tommy and Bobby Dedrick were going to be the bartenders at “Bob’s TV Bar.” Unfortunately, Bob came down with the flu and couldn’t make it, but Tommy’s daughter Deanne very ably filled in for him.
The bartenders very graciously donated their tips and the patrons were very generous in support of the Best Fourth in the North. Over $600 was raised in two hours. Thank you to Tommy and Deanne and to Jeremy Treadway for hosting this event.
Everyone had a good time and, at the same time, we raised funds for a great cause. If you missed the fun, you may get another chance to support the Best Fourth. Tommy Dedrick has suggested that we do it again and possibly include some other “celebrity” bartenders. We will be trying to schedule another event at “Bob’s TV Bar” sometime soon.
Each year, the Best Fourth committee raises over $20,000 to fund the four–day event, the parade and the outstanding fireworks display. Thank you very much for your continuing support of the committee and its fundraising efforts!
