We had a wonderful time at our crop yesterday. Rebecca Peck, lead fiskateer, and such a wonderful, funny person was our guest host. I could not thank her enough for coming here to Barboursville on this special day.
We had so many fiskateers and encourage them to wear orange. That orange glow that the space station probaly reported was us.
Many thanks to everyone who helped. They are so many of my special friends who helped me make this event a success. I love you guys- Sue, Mary,Gail, Laura and Suzie.
We cropped, laughed, ate, and had wonderful surprises. Groovy Deb and Sweepnut,Denise surprised me by registering under other names. YEAH! They came all the way from Richmond. Mardi, whom I dearly love, came from Michigan and a new frien, Sherri came from Ohio. Old friendships were renewed and new friendships formed.
This was our 2nd annual charity crop for the National Lupus Foundation. the crop fee and the auction will allow us to donate around $2,000.00 in honor Jarrell Bledsoe, my brother in law, who died in Oct, 2007. Mary was such a great auctionner and everyone was so generous.
We had an orangest contest. Many took this very serious and you will see by the photo. Sue, super fiskateer won,but so many others had fun participating. Many thanks to Robin, Melissa, Laura and Suzie who all put much effort into this fun contest.
I will blog more about this later, but thank you to all of you that came or helped in any way. I had a BLAST!
