Esther Short — The fourth annual spring luncheon for Loaves & Fishes Centers raised more than $187,000 in just one hour to provide hot meals to seniors throughout Clark County. Matching funds from the Maybelle Clark Macdonald Fund and from the Byrd Family helped make this possible. More than 400 folks from Clark County gathered at the Hilton Vancouver Washington on April 12. Among the speakers was local singer and actress Susannah Mars. K103 morning radio personality Bruce Murdock was emcee.
