Granton Comes Out in Droves (Ham Dinner – 12 September 2020)
The inability to have a sit-down gathering did not put a halt to the Granton Area School District Foundation putting on a fundraising event this year. The organization put on a drive-through ham dinner Sept. 12, and at times had folks lining up in their cars back to Main Street from the field house. When folks drove up, there were volunteers there to greet them and to take their orders. At times, people ordered four to five dinners, and even as many as 15 dinners at a time. There were about 130 to 140 meals sold as of 5:30 p.m. the day of the event, after it started at 4:30 p.m. Dinners included ham, cheesy scalloped potatoes, beans, a dinner roll, cheese curds, milk and cake. Some items were pre-packaged and others, like the ham and potatoes, were pre-cooked and in warmers in the lobby of the field house. Then a group of volunteers steered a coordinated effort into getting meals out to folks in their vehicles. It included John Richmond signaling how many dinners per order and Abby and Nathan Schoessow writing down the number of dinners on post It notes and attaching them to vehicles’ side mirrors. Those a part of the effort included John and Lisa Richmond; Omar and Sheryl Young; Dan, Courtney, Abby and Nathan Schoessow; Kevin and Shelly Schmitz; Cheryl Steinbach; Char Johnson; Camille Genteman; and Mark and Kelli Elmhorst. During the event, there was even some live streaming done on Facebook by John Richmond and Courtney Schoessow as a means of promoting the dinner to encourage people to get ham dinners.
