Wow what a great weekend we had last Sat and Sun for the fair! As in past years, our booth was set up at Ms.Luckett’s Garden near the kids stage so we had entertainment, shade from a big ‘ole oak tree and a nice breeze that passed through every now and then. We had lots of people visit us at the booth asking questions about local flora and fauna and sharing stories of their wildlife encounters.
For those who filled out our survey of interests (which helps us come up with new program ideas), we held a raffle for a book called “Wildlife at Your Back Door: How to Create A Haven for Nature’s Friends”. (drum roll please….) And the winner of the raffle is Amanda Sanes of Leesburg. We’ll be mailing the book to Amanda this week so she can start enjoying it. Thanks to everyone who participated!
Many thanks to all our volunteers who helped set up and man the booth: Sandy Ruefer, Nancy Walker, Nicole Hamilton, Bonnie Eaton, Lynn Webster, Lisa Taylor, Casey and Candi Crichton, Barbara McKee, Debbie and Lloyd Burtaine, Ellie Florance and Richelle Brown
As always, the fair was really well run and had so much to offer. We look forward to doing it again next year!
