VFW Post 10574 of Colonial Beach Hosts Fund Raiser for Boy Scout Troop 258.

DATELINE COLONIAL BEACH , VA - 8 SEPTEMBER 2006

By Frank A. Alger , Jr. Scoutmaster Troop 258, Colonial Beach , VA

Ph: 804-224-2093 (H), 804-761-7080 (C)

On Friday, September the 1st of 2006, A nor'easter smashed and crashed its way along the shores of the Potomac River . It was the remnants of Tropical Storm Ernesto paying Colonial Beach , VA , a visit. 

Even though Ernesto left behind a wet, soggy, reminder of his visit, members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, Post No. 10574, as well as many non-member Town Citizens in Colonial Beach, rolled up their sleeves, as well as their pants, wadded in and held a Benefit Fund Raiser for the Town's Boy Scout Troop, Troop 258.  

Caroline Bartmess, Auxiliary Sponsor, inspired the all-daylong event that raised more than $400.00 for the Troop. She is the wife of the present Post Commander, Curtis Bartmess .  

The affair kicked off with the Post serving breakfast from 7 AM - 11 AM . At twelve- noon music was supplied by John Baxter , "The One Man Band,” who donated his time for the event.  

While Jeanne, Jeanne, the Dancing Machine, Grigsby; Carlyle Brown; and Dianna Hollinger supervised the Bake Sale, Betty Garettson cooked and sold hotdogs supplied by George Millward of the DBA Beach Beverage & Snack Co., during lunch.

Bake goods, made and donated by both members and non-members, started arriving and quickly piled up. Tina and Besty Law each made and donated three cakes.

Donations for Raffle items came in from Leonard and Betty Brown ($50.00 High Tides Restaurant Gift Certificate), Barbara Millward donated a beautiful piece of Stained Glass Artwork, and “Buzz” Buswell, of Metro Golf Cart Rentals, donated a one-day golf cart rental certificate. Other donations to the cause came from Rankins , Beach Bazaar, the Yacht Center , and Elmer Butcher .

Taking over for John Baxter at 3:00 PM was Starlight DJ & Karaoke’s Elwood & Danielle Junkins who proceeded to pump favorite tunes for the afternoon and evening crowd. These two Thursday night Karaoke favorites donated their next nine hours to the cause.

From 4 PM - 7 PM the Post offered steak dinners grilled to perfection outdoors by a locally renowned chef, Greg Hollinger , who kept his secrete ingredients and methods close to his vest. 

Raffles continued until Thursday's Karaoke Night at which time winners for the items will be selected.

Representatives present from the Troop included Scouts Timothy Alger , Justus Austin , Andre Watts , and Dylan Raehn . Adult Scout leaders attending were Frank and Carol Alger , Patty King , & Maggie Austin . Other Scouts, such as Brendan Turner , were busy helping clean up after Ernesto ’s wet-n-wild visit. 

A HEARTY CONGRATULATIONS and a GREAT JOB, to all VFW Members and Non-members who planned, served, cooked, donated, and cleaned.
