BARC's block party is a record-breaker

Once again the front lawn of the Business, Arts & Recreation Center (BARC), 1012 5th Ave. in Windom, came alive with great food and musical entertainment at the Annual BARC Community Block Party.

Monday's partyset records for product donations and financial contributions.

Food for the free will lawn picnic was provided by Hy-Vee and included hamburgers, brats, potato salad, baked beans, beverage and cookie. Entertainment for the event included performances by the Windom Area Chordhustlers and the BARC Community Band along with a demonstration from KIK FIT Martial Arts.

In an effort to help raise funds for general operating expenses, a silent auction was held in the BARC library featuring treasures for everyone. This year, the wide variety of items, gift cards and certificates, services, baskets of goods and a few celebrity donations were collected and auctioned off. The items, including a Toro Zero Turn Radius riding lawn mower, could also be seen on the BARC Website for the first time. The number of items donated and funds collected broke all previous records.
