Standing Rock raises funds for community center

Published 8:04 pm Tuesday, November 28, 2017

The Standing Rock Community Center Committee thanks everyone who purchased tickets to the First Annual Fish Fry and Cake Auction Fund-Raiser held on Oct. 28, at the Dodgen Home in Standing Rock, Alabama.

Although it was a little cool with light rain on and off, everyone enjoyed coming together and visiting with old friends and making new ones. Tables decorated with Autumn centerpieces were set up outside under tents and a convenient drive-around route was in place for those who needed to just pick up their plate and go. Toe-tapping live music around a campfire was provided throughout the day. More than 500 fish plates were sold. A large assortment of cakes, pies and cookies were auctioned off.  “I Stand with Standing Rock” t-shirts were also sold.

A special thanks to the State Line Hunt Club, Chambers County Sheriff Sid Lockhart and Sharon Lockhart, all those who donated delicious sweets for the cake auction and the volunteers who helped make this fund-raiser a truly awesome event.

The current community center is in need of major repairs. It’s being used as the polling location for registered voters residing in the Standing Rock area. Once the new Community Center is built, it will be available for rental and serve as the polling location for the Standing Rock community.

If you would like more information on making a donation toward the building fund or to find out how you can help, please contact Sharon Dodgen McLaughlin at (706) 333-8559.
