On March 25th and 26th of this year the Friends of Ivanhoe held our 2nd Annual community yard sale and bake sale. Because of your generosity and hard work we once again brought in over $3,000.00. These proceeds were donated to the IPOIA to help keep our parks and lakes operating. Once again, thanks to all who participated!

On April 9th, the Friends of Ivanhoe volunteers donated hot dogs and all the trimmings for over 20 teens and their sponsors as they picked up the trash on our roads. As I talk about this, I would like to plead with you to please watch the trash in the bed of your trucks, as this flies out as you drive and adds to the trash that some people feel they must throw out of their windows! Please help keep out community clean.

On May 28th, the Fire Department will hold its annual barbeque and all the trimmings at the entrance of Ivanhoe. The Ladies Civic Club will be there with their annual bake sale also. Serving starts at 10 a.m. until it runs out, so get there early!

On June 2nd there will be a Friends of Ivanhoe meeting at 6:30 p.m. at the Community Center. We will be handing out pre-sale tickets for the fish fry, planning the fish fry, ice cream sale and Market Day. Please join us as we need everyone's help to make our city a great place to live!

On June 18th starting at 11:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m., Friends of Ivanhoe will hold their 2nd annual FISH FRY! This will be at the entrance to Ivanhoe just like last year. We will have baked goods and drinks for sale too! The food will be cooked by Southern Comfort Catering again. This is the BEST fish dinner you will ever eat! Tickets are $8 and will be available at the IPOIA office or any Friend of Ivanhoe member.

On July 3rd, the Fire Department will hold their annual Fire Works display. This will take place around around 9 - 9:30 p.m. when it becomes dark. There will be hamburgers, hot dogs, french fries, drinks and ice cream bars. The food will be ready around 4:30 p.m. so bring your lawn chairs, come early, and join us for a great 4th of July celebration!!

There will be more later, so keep in touch!
