    Once again we are pleased to announce that Michigan will be having our annual Third Saturday in June event known as Chicken Stock. Or for those who like abbreviations, CS15

    As usual, the event will be held at Delta Mills Park in Lansing on June 20 from 10:00 to 3:00.
    The park is located at:

    7001 Old River Trail
    1-1/2 miles north on Canal off Saginaw, and 1/2 mile east on Old River Trail


    Come to this thread to sign up, add your dish to pass and to volunteer to help with set-up and clean-up.
    This thread will also serve as gateway for the swap meet information and who our guest speaker may be. Other information will also be posted as it comes in.

    Please note that after a period of time, the originator of this thread loses the ability to go back and edit the OP. So the most current updates are contained on my "member's page" located at

    Please SUBSCRIBE to that page and this one to get the latest information regarding CS15

    Uchytil and Cindy A will be attending.
    Uchytil will volunteer as a photag and Cindy A will help with the raffle.
    Food for the potluck - Not sure at present, so you can update later?

    Who has the raffle tickets, sign-up book, name tags, etc? Not sure who took that stuff home. We'll just need to make sure it's brought.

    For everyone's information there is a raffle. There is NO dollar amount associated with your entry. If you want to participate it's simple - you bring one (1) item to put on the table, homemade, store bought - it does not matter. I usually put a bottle of my Maple Syrup on the table. If you noticed the picture I posted the other day that painted egg was on the table courtesy of Glambka. Use your imagination.

    There is also a "collection" jar if anyone wants to drop in a little something. The rental of the pavilion is not free. There is NO requirement that you do this however.

    You can sell/swap items there. Chickens, small animals, homemade stuff, etc. I usually sell Maple Syrup, bunnies, whatever. It's also a good time to bring unwanted roos and such as there is usually people that come just fro those items. There may be a thread starting soon for you to list your swap/seel, or wanted items.

    What else?
