4/7/2020 It’s For the Birds Fundraiser

       Our “It’s For the Birds” silent auction fundraiser was scheduled for April 20th thru May 2nd.  Trying to be the eternal optimist we have put off postponing it, but….it will not happen at the end of the month.  However, it WILL happen eventually.  So for that reason we will continue to post pictures of items as they are donated.  Todays post is the adorable “Bathing Beauty”, from Janet Burdick.  Wouldn’t she look cute in your garden or on your front porch?  We also still have a few wooden birdhouses available if you’d like to try your hand at painting or decorating one.  Watch for more items that will be in the auction in the coming weeks.
