GFWC Snowflake Luncheon tickets go on sale

In frontier days children were given a hot baked potato to hold in their pockets to keep their hands warm for the sleigh ride home. Once the potato cooled off, the children could have a delicious snack along the way.
The General Federated Women’s Club of Delano (GFWC) 2013 Snowflake Luncheon will take place Saturday, Feb. 2, at the Delano American Legion, located on Bridge Avenue at Highway 12. The menu includes a baked potato bar, with toppings (bacon, sour cream and chives, broccoli, baked ham, cheddar cheese, etc), coffee and dessert. Cash bar will be available. The musical performing duo “Touching Hearts” will provide entertainment. GFWC will offer party favors for all in attendance and door prizes.
GFWC events are fund raisers which support various Delano community projects.  Past projects include construction of the Central Park gazebo, walking path, Concerts in the Park, and many others.
