Four talented performers took the stage at the 2nd Annual Vegas Night Saturday at Port's VFW Post 8185. Guitarist Norman Gaither was followed by "Singing Cindi" Lamb. Then emcee and DJ Bob Cross performed several Neil Diamond tunes. The evening's entertainment was capped by Jesse McCarly with his "Powers of the Mind" show.
The event, sponsored by the four Cecil County Ladies Auxiliaries, raised more than $7,000 for the VFW's cancer aid and research fund. Dee Russo, District 10 president, welcomed 125 patrons and she thanked co-chairmen Linda Cotton and Kathy Heaton. Department of Maryland Ladies Auxiliary President Lyn MacArthur from VFW Post 5337 in Abingdon enjoyed the food, auctions and raffles – winning one of the four baskets of cheer.
Best wishes to Tasha Triplett as she celebrated on Feb. 16 and to Marcella Oliver who celebrated her birthday on Feb. 19. Susan Hopkins, formerly of Port, enjoyed birthday greetings on Feb. 19 as well.
