    I know we have several really good raffle items including 40# bags of poultry grain, a carved emu eggs like last time but this one has a hummingbird on one side/rooster on back side in a lantern for display, a stained glass stepping stone of a rooster and we have more items coming in. if anyone knows of a business or an individual that would like to donate, we would appreciate it as well.

    we will also have the auction, not sure what we have currently for items, I did see a hand crafted clock but that might get moved to the raffle table.

    I've got my entries sent in- who's going? I've got 4 birds entered.
    if anyone has items they would like to donate for the raffle table or know of any business that would like to, that would be wonderful.
    I almost got a donation out of agway in winslow yesterday- so very close, they told me to come back after their yardsale. [​IMG]


    and I just wanted to say, we have a humongous pine tree on our property, the branches are literally as big around as a regular sized pine tree. I wish I had my camera that day I was out in the woods, so I could have taken a picture of a cut limb (not from this tree) that is maybe 5 feet wide. got to go check if it's the largest in the state.....

    Quote:yes, it is for a space outside the show hall to sell any extra birds (items) you have.
    I'm excited that the auction will start earlier in the day so maybe we can have more bidders. had a great auction in the spring and a pretty good raffle table. this yr we will have 50# bags of grain on the raffle table as well.

    Hoppy, If it rains, do you think they would let us hold our outdoor sales in the open building next to the show barn? So our Chickies won't get wet!
