Roncalli ball officials give thanks

Farm Forum

The 34th annual Roncalli Ball was held April 6 at the Ramkota Convention Center. The theme, “Enchanted Garden,” surrounded our guests with spring for an evening. It was truly a respite from this neverending winter! All enjoyed superb food, great entertainment and dancing.

Thanks to all who took advantage of this great opportunity to celebrate and support the Aberdeen Catholic School System. Our volunteers and our generous benefactors make this event possible. You are all too numerous to mention.

The iPad Mini, donated by Great Western Bank, was won by John Carrels. Randy Bierle won the Heads and Tails game for a trip for two to the 125th Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena, Calif. This was donated by Dacotah Bank. The big winner of the night was Edie Mattern, who won the $10,000 Roncalli Ball raffle.

We would like to extend a special thank you to Jerry Trefz for his vision and tireless effort that transformed the convention center into an “Enchanted Garden.” Angela Steinbach, and the Roncalli development staff, with their organization and talents, made our job as chairs very enjoyable.

The ball was a tremendous success for Roncalli, as well as for those who attended. Thank you!

Annie Falk, Janet Hedges and Kristi Wherry
