Loonie Draw Donations

As always, the club tries to make the show as entertaining as possible.  One of the regular attractions is the "Loonie Draw".  In order to offer this attraction, donations are required to be used for prizes.  This year our Junior Members intend to operate a draw of their own, so children's prizes will be required.

 

If you have any item(s) you would like to donate for the draw please contact Sheri Dunn, our Loonie Draw Chairperson at 226-200-0388.  Donations may be brought directly to Sheri, brought to the next club meeting or brought to the show grounds a few days prior to show time.

 

The "Loonie Draw" has raised a significant amount of money for the club over the past few years, so let us continue our good work and try to outdo last years total.  Just like any of our other attractions and displays, volunteers are more than welcome!!
