SVAAA to give thanks, recognition during pancake breakfast

SVAAA to give thanks, recognition during pancake breakfast:
"The Association decided to raise the funds for a new building itself by getting into lawful gambling (pull tabs) and this money was set aside for the new building.

He noted that around 2000 the association came up with a design and was then really serious about raising funds. Cooper stated the building cost about $525,000 to be built and this money came from pull tabs and a pledge drive.

Cooper said a loan was taken out by the association at Security State Bank to pay off some debt and to finish off the rest of the building's interior. This is the note that will be burned at the breakfast and it was paid off from proceeds from pull tabs and some of the associations training money.

Cooper noted that at one time the association had its pull tab boxes at five locations but it has dwindled down to one currently.

'Its a good feeling, with the pull tab locations dwindling down, it seems like good timing,' stated Cooper."
