The great music group at the beginning of the eveningand all 18 of the Interacters and Campo Choir membersmade a big hit with their enthusiasm and energy. Thedonors and the bidders on the wonderful silent auctionitems and the delicious DVC baked cakes buyersbrought in money for Moraga Rotary service projects. Thanks to Colin Barnard for a masterful job as MC andthe Campo student who handled the race projectorwithout a hitch! Thanks must also go to the horsesponsors, even if their horse did not win. We areindebted to the bartenders, and the race trackmanagers who covered the betting and payoff windows,and the team of cashiers and computers experts whohandled the purchasers. The caterers did a good job aswell as those who stuck around to clean up the hall as
