Holy Cross School holds annual dinner and auction Holy Cross School in Marty (also known as Pearl Lake) held their seventh annual dinner and auction Saturday evening, April 13. The theme was "A Night in New Orleans," and Jack and Ginger Zwilling were the hosts. There were nearly 100 items donated for the silent auction, including carved wooden orna- ments, a number of various gift baskets, garden ornaments, and a number of overnight stays and other gifts donated by local and near-local businesses. There really was something for every interest and taste. Nearly 50 items were donated for the live auction that fol- lowed the dinner. (John Meagher donated his services as auction- eer.) A Pearl Lake fishing trip and an overnight ice fishing excursion were among the live auction items. A couple of hand-made quilts were auctioned off, as was dinner for four prepared by Father Mark Ostendorf. There also were cook- ies, pork and beef, soups, breads, and other edibles; lawn and gar- den implements, decorations and furniture; Twins and Vikings tick- ets, and even a round of golf; and a number of very special items made and donated by the students at Holy Cross School. Congratulations to the school and to the community that keeps it going, now more than 100 years: "A Night in New Orleans" was the theme of this year's Holy Cross School annual dinner and auction. There was plenty of food and festivities New Orleans-style April 13 in Marry during the 7th annual dinner and auction for Holy Cross School.
