Almost 2,600 ham and biscuits were sold throughout Cadiz Friday morning, and about 400 were delivered to the senior center’s homebound people, who had ordered in advance, the day before, Bland said.
The regular senior staff and about 15 volunteers came in at about 4 a.m. on Friday to start making the ham biscuits, said Bland, who wanted to highlight that everyone who helped out to made this fundraiser a success.
“We sold them all,” Bland said. “We had people coming in here all morning … We made a lot of extras, but we sold them all.”
Bland said that the purpose of the fundraiser was to “cushion our nest,” as the senior center is bound to have some unexpected expenses that Pennyrile Allied Community Services (PACS) probably won’t pay for.
The money will also help the senior center buy some little items that it wants to purchase before Christmas rolls around, said Bland.
Among other businesses and organizations, Kentucky Machine took about 200 biscuits, FabSol took more than 70, WKDZ took almost 50, the Bank of Cadiz took 60, the schools took quite a few and several businesses all along the street took between about 15 and 25 each, said Bland.
