Where the money goes from the GE Fair; already working on next year’s?

<strong>Barry’s on the Go gone?</strong>

Just when I was ready to sample Jerry Howlett’s tri-tip and potato salad, his food truck disappeared. Does anyone know what happened to Barry’s on the Go? I’m on the lookout for it, but if you see it first, let me know. It was a great addition to the eateries in our town, but came and went too fast for me.

Previously parked adjacent to Kevin Flores’s garage, the truck was doing a brisk lunch business with state hospital workers. Now, it’s nowhere to be seen. Help me out here, folks.

<strong>Letter from Leslie</strong>

Leslie Vaughn recently wrote to tell me, “I need to point out a much needed correction from the first paragraph in your 10/21/13 column. We would like the community to know that of the funds raised from the Glen Ellen Village Fair quilt raffle ticket sales, 90 percent is donated directly back to our community (distributed each year to Dunbar School, Glen Ellen and Mayacamas fire departments, Sonoma Developmental Center, and other local charities by vote of the Glen Ellen Village Fair Committee). The fair, by law, is allowed to keep just 10 percent of the raffle ticket sales which, together with booth fees, poster and T-shirt sales, helps pay for insurance, permits, and various other fees, including the California Highway Patrol, who assist with the road closure each year.
