After Barb started to order, Dave Leopold called Scott and told him we could get what we needed from Merrill Distributing. Scott called Barb back and found out she had help to serve the Banquet. The food was brought in. Mabel Fromfeld, Dave and Sandy Sherfinski and Bryan and Linda Plautz Helped prepare and serve the Banquet. Those just mentioned along with Barb, volunteered their time.

The Eagles are "People helping People" and on that Saturday the Merrill Eagles did just that! "I am so proud of all those that stepped up to help out during this time of need, and having the resources to get everything done on short notice" Stated Doerr.
