The Germanfest co-sponsors,
St. John United Church of Christ and the Oasis Senior Center, have announced
the total for the 2013 event. There were 244 meals served by the youth with
the drive-thru orders and over 500 eating inside, giving the event a total
profit of $4,242.23.
From the proceeds, $500 was given to
the St. John Youth Group for their annual program and dance for
veterans. The balance was divided between the two sponsors. The
Oasis received $1,871.12, and St. John United Church split their
$1,871.11 among three recipients. A total of $1,500 was designated
to go to disaster relief, to be given to help with the recent needs
in Washington and the other communities in central Illinois that
were affected by the tornado and to a Philippine relief fund. The
balance of $371.11 will be sent to a sister church, St. John UCC in
Chicago, for their inner-city mission work.
Also, the remaining brats not sold
