The REES Theatre will host a fundraiser this Saturday at the Farmer’s Market starting at 8 a.m. and another Pulled-Pork fundraiser on Tuesday, August 24th.

Allan Pontius will have his hit-and-miss engine at River Park Square Saturday and will use it to make homemade ice cream.  There will be no cost for the ice cream, but a free-will-donation will be accepted.  As a bonus the Plymouth Dairy Queen will be matching the donations received during Saturday’s event. 

The funds will be deposited into the REES Fund at the Marshall County Community Foundation and Lilly will match those donation by fifty percent. 

This means, if you donate $5 for your bowl of homemade vanilla ice cream the Plymouth Dairy Queen will match it making the donation $10 and then Lilly will match that by 50% making it a $15 donation to the REES. 

The second fundraiser is the annual Pulled Pork Sandwich on Tuesday, August 24th.  There are some changes this year, new chefs, a new location and the option of lunch or dinner. 

This event has grown larger than what the Coffee Lodge can handle so Robert Listenberger from Bob’s Cafeteria and Bruce Ruffing from Bruce’s Big Grill will be cooking the pork.  This year pick-up will be at the World Headquarters of Bob’s Cafeteria at 610 East Jefferson Street.  Also, they have expanded the hours for this fundraiser to include lunch and dinner.  You can get a pulled pork sandwich, a bag of chips and a beverage donated by Plymouth Coca Cola or Culligan for a $10 donation.  Lunch is available from 11 to 1 and dinner will be available from 4:30 to 6:30.

Tickets are now on sale for $10 and can be purchased at the Coffee Lodge on East Jefferson Street or at Bowen Printing.  Members of the REES committee also have tickets and if you purchase 10 or more tickets they will deliver your meals to you.
