Beast Feast Huge Success!!


The Beast Feast, (Wild Game Feed) held in Oakland over the weekend was a huge success! “We had 200-250 attend,” stated Co-Chamber of Commerce President David Deemer.

The event was held as a fundraiser for Oakland’s 150th celebration to be held in 2018. “With the support of Oakland and our surrounding communities, we made a great step towards obtaining that goal,” Deemer said.

Kim Helzer along with Chamber members and a group from Arlington worked together to provide those attending a wonderful meal. “We have been doing this in Arlington for 11 or 12 years now,” stated Mike Lowe, one of the group members from Arlington who helped in cooking the meal. “It has been a great fundraiser, benefiting many areas of our community.”

The food was an experiment for some. “My favorite was the elk meatballs. They were delicious,” stated Judy Nelson.

Donna Preston had so many delicacies on her plate she wasn’t sure what she was eating. “It is all so delicious, it doesn’t matter,” Donna said.

The success of this event belongs to many individuals. “The Oakland Chamber of Commerce would like to thank Kim Helzer and all of her friends for making this such a successful event,” Deemer stated. “The Oakland Chamber looks forward to possibly doing it again next year! Thanks to everyone who donated towards our 150th celebration.”
