Donations Needed for Dance Floor and Firewood for Spring Summer Events

If you are interested in donating for the dance floor and firewood, please go to www.PayPal.com and on the home page, in the middle of the left side, there is a button that says, SEND SOMEONE MONEY.  Click that and follow the instructions.  You will need to enter my e-mail address [masked].  Any amount would be greatly appreciated.


Hi Friends,


I am in the process of getting our calendar started for the summer. 

Tom Harrold and I cooked up the idea of building a dance floor in the back yard! Mike J. has stepped up to be our DJ!  Steve P. will be lead in actually building the floor!  He is a carpenter.  Any other help would be welcomed and appreciated!

I am reaching out to all of you that plan to attend the events.  I am asking for donations for materials for the dance floor.  It will most likely cost between $250-$300 to build and install.

I would like to have firewood delivered for the fire pit for our events throughout the summer.  That also costs about $100-$125.00.  So donations are needed.

When we do have the dances, the event fee will only be $5.00.  It would take all summer to raise the money.  If any of you would like to donate, I will have the donation event set up on our site and you may donate any denomination of money that you wish.  Anything you can do to help me get the materials would be greatly appreciated.  These events are being designed for you!

I plan to have Movies Under the Stars.  I have a large portable screen and a very nice projector.  If any of you have classic movies that you would like to share please submit your choices to me and I will start lining them up.  When we do movie nights, you can bring your lawn chair, drinks and a snack to share. Bug spray and citronella torches will be provided along with ice and water, smores, marshmallows, hot dogs and buns.

What is Ravinia on the Lawn in Arlington Heights? Some of you may remember that from two summers ago! You will pack your coolers, your food, your chair just like you were going to Ravinia but we will be doing Ravinia in the back yard here in Arlington Heights.  I encourage several of you to band together to bring and make a table like you see at Ravinia--Pretty table cloth, candelabras, wine, candles, nice dishes and such.  Go all out!  Then when everyone has their tables set up the music will begin at dark and everyone is encouraged to go from table to table to nibble and visit!  It was so much fun the last time we did that!  We had great music from Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra to Michael Buble' and a host of others!  Later the music changed to dance music!  That is why we need the dance floor!

If you are interested in donating for the dance floor and firewood, please go to www.PayPal.com and on the home page, in the middle of the left side, there is a button that says, SEND SOMEONE MONEY.  Click that and follow the instructions.  You will need to enter my e-mail address [masked].  Any amount would be greatly appreciated.

I already have the paint and primer needed for the floor and will be doing all the painting as my part in the dance floor.  I will also take care of the floor each winter so that we have it next year!

Thanks for any amount that you can donate!  We will have a FUN Summer!
