raffle items
Today, on a hot Saturday from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m., Moe Gingerich and Daniel Brinneman took to the road to hand deliver the prizes to our 2013 Waxhaw Spring Fest raffle winners. We got each to smile for cameraman, Moe, holding their prize as Daniel presented it to them. Thanks goes to our members for turning these artistic pieces for the raffle. Each one of our winners was very excited. We may have a few future members.
