Hotel fundraiser will be Saturday

   The annual Blessing Hotel Fundraiser will start at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, July 18.
   This year’s goal is to raise enough money to renovate the flooring in the dining room.
   “Every year we have a fundraiser to help with the upkeep of the hotel,” said Blessing Hotel coffee shop owner Helen Feldhousen.
   “The floor is weak in some spots all over and by the stoves.”
   One man doing repairs on a ceiling fan fell through the floor, she says.
   “Every day is a new adventure at the Blessing Hotel,” said Feldhousen.
   The fundraiser will have an auction, raffle and many more activities.
   Live entertainment will be provided by The Lazy Farmers Band.
   Food will be served from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and feature a hamburger, chips and drink for only $8.
   “They’re going to pull up the floor and put new braces and beams underneath,” said Feldhousen.
   There will also be a few holes patched up in the walls, mainly by the cash register.
   “So far, we are going to be open while they are doing repairs,” she said.
   “But, we’re playing that by ear.”
   Feldhousen has worked at the hotel since 1969 and has been running the coffee shop on her own since 1977.
   The coffee shop is open every day except Christmas Day from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.
   Breakfast is served from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. off the menu.
   Lunch is done buffet style from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
