Candle Lighters present awards, name new board members

Submitted By Joella Thompson

The trailers are all tucked away, and the ghosts, goblins, vampires and other scary creatures have all been put to rest until next fall. Now, all that the Candle Lighters have left to do is to present the awards to this year's recipients.

That was handled at our Presentation Luncheon held Saturday, Jan. 27, at Spin-a-Yarn restaurant in Fremont. Those being presented with awards from the profits from the 2017 Ghost House, Shadow of the Vampire, include the following Tri-City non-profits:

¥ League of Voters of Newark -- $2,848.46 to purchase warehouse shelving

¥ Safe Alternatives to Violent Environments -- $8,285.00 to purchase 16 dressers and five bunk beds

The luncheon and presentation were followed by the election of the new Candle Lighter Board for 2018-2019. Here are the newly-elected board members:
