The Nowthen Lions is hosting a fundraiser Saturday, Jan. 12 at the First Baptist Church of St. Francis, 22940 St. Francis Blvd. for Dale and Rose Ann Ames, 42-year residents of Nowthen who lost their home to fire Dec. 19.
There will be a silent auction from 3 to 7 p.m. with a spaghetti dinner from 4 to 8 p.m. The cost will be $10 per person and $5 for children 10 years of age and younger.
The Ameses participate in community events in Nowthen. They belong to the Nowthen Senior Citizens Club, help to organize events, help the city office with mailings, and volunteer around town.
Anyone interested in donating a silent auction item or donating to the family may contact Lion Judy Herrala at 763-753-6962 and she will arrange to pick up the item. Donations to the Ameses may be sent to the Lions Club at 22730 Waco St. N.W., Nowthen, Minn. 55070. Write Ames Benefit on memo line.
