It is never too early to start planning for the upcoming cake auction to be held on Friday, February 6, 2015. The theme is “A Night at the Movies.” The top cakes will be auctioned off and the others will be sold at a silent auction. There will be three division this year….Professional, Amateur and Student. This great event is sponsored by the Maquoketa Education Fund and the Maquoketa Athletic Boosters. Many of you have benefited from the great work of these groups. We are asking that cakes be brought to the Maquoketa High School no later than 4:30 on Friday, February 6, 2015. Judging will begin at 5:00.
If you are willing to donate a cake or cakes for this event, please contact Erin Moore at email@example.com, Mary Kay Wirth at firstname.lastname@example.org, or Teri Taylor at email@example.com.

Jim was diagnosed with two masses in the prostate and has undergone 3 surgeries, only to have the masses return leaving him in chronic pain and partially disabled. Deb was diagnosed with a cystic neoplasm of the pancreas resulting in more medical treatment and additional expense. Over the past 3 years the ongoing medical bills have become overwhelming. Jim & Deb are big supporters of their community and have donated thousands for various projects throughout the county through their local talent shows. The committee is hoping to give back to them this time around as they are good people.
