Our annual open house event was dampened by rain and blown by the wind, but our first potluck-style raffle went off without a hitch.

Those who came out despite the weather took a tour of our sanctuary and then met in the sheltered picnic area of the nearby Catheys Valley Texaco. There they enjoyed delectable refreshments courtesy of Costco, Raley’s and Save Mart of Merced and Pizza Factory of Le Grand, as well as choice viands from Catheys Valley and Mariposa food providers.

Those who bought raffle tickets went away laden with valuable gifts and gift cards from many Merced County merchants. Local crafters Becky Garza, Jomarie George, Debbie Jones and LaVerne Schuler contributed their creations, and Nancy Taniguchi donated a number of items. There were too many Mariposa County donors to mention here. Thanks to all who helped and to all who came out!
