On a clear and lightly windy June 17th, the folks of P.R.E.P came forth and presented the second annual evening of wonderful food at South Beach House and music by a local group. Well, the word local doesn't describe the superb musical talents of Gil and Ellen and Craddock. They were amazing. They braved through the wind and coolness with musicality seldom heard on the 'Point'. We loved them and the dinner guests loved them. Many braved the cool wind to dance to the music.

The evening was a success. In terms of raised funds, we were successful... for PREP, the food bank, and the community events sign. In terms of enjoyment, one hundred and fourteen folks had a grand old time (sold out second year in a row). Noisy, sure, but fun.

Of course Max prepared another delicious meal... that was to be expected. We must say that Karen Pollock, Linda and daughter Veronica Hughes, Simone Eremenco and of course Jacynthe Perich, the quintet of volunteers, outperformed beyond all of our expectations. Not only were they beautifully dressed and coiffed, they were beautiful themselves. We know we shouldn't do an automobile comparison, but this quintet was like seeing a Bentley in operationā€¦ and that was something.

Our Canadian friends and especially TOOB gifted us with their presence. (Tsawwassen Order Of Old B------s). The silent auction, the raffles, almost all the gift tables were bare at the end of the evening. A big thank you to all of those who donated items for auction. We had two door prizes... two hundred seventy five meals in a five gallon can. (dehydrated, of course), and the ultimate door prize, a four hour ride along in a Whatcom County K9 Sheriff unit. It was won by one of our delightful seniors and was arranged by Deputy Sheriff Brian Oswalt, a member of PREP.

It was a terrific evening with wonderful friends who had two goals in mind. Enjoy ourselves and, it's a big "AND", helping our neighbors.

Again, to repeat, PREP is about Neighbors Helping Neighbors. So, if you will, please join us at our meetingsā€¦ the first Tuesday of the month, 7 p.m. at the community center.

Thank you so much to all those who attended, donated, and helped! We all did it and we should all be proud! As a community, we were there for each other. Your Point Roberts Emergency Preparedness Group
