So many thanks, so little space!
The 2013 Celebration dinner and silent auction, on Thurs., Sept. 5, was a great event, thanks to our sponsors, Hobby Horse Arts and the Badlander; a wonderful band, Headwaters; many generous donors who provided terrific silent auction items; the volunteers who helped set up and clean up; and all of those who attended. Thanks for your part in keeping the ponies going in circles!
Carousel board members, crew members and other volunteers had great fun helping in the Baskin Robbins booth at the Western Montana Fair. Thanks to Matt Loomis and his crew for allowing us to be part of the action, and for the donation of a percentage of the proceeds. We earned nearly $2000 working with Matt and his crew!
The response to our request for help with purchasing new light bulbs for the Carousel was phenomenal. Thanks to a grant from Northwestern Energy and donations from our friends, we have secured the funds to purchase the new bulbs, which will be installed on Oct. 15. We will choose the winner of the double-deluxe birthday party or private rental at that time. We are still accepting funds for lightbulbs, because we know they will need to be replaced from time to time, so you are still welcome to donate to the cause and be entered into the contest. Call 549-8382 or visit the gift shop to donate.
