We have winners! Please see who the lucky winners are next to the prizes below. Thank you.
Well friends, it`s getting to that time of year, when thoughts turn to the Annual Meeting. I am pleased to announce that we have some great items for the raffle again this year. First, I want to give a big Thank You to the members who donated these wonderful items! The two raffles we hold each year are a great way for us to raise money for the Guild’s many programs, and there is no way to do that without the help of so many of you . So with out further delay, here are this year’s items and names of those who graciously donated them…
This year’s nine items are…
The NMLRA has donated a print of David Wright’s “Spirit of America.” Won by Ray Troutman
An engraved compass box with a chip carved lid, by Master Horner John Proud Won by Gary Steele
An Early Philadelphia style screw tip horn, crafted by Ron Hess Won by Todd Searle
A lovely hand woven buffalo wool strap, by Pam Hutton Won by Gerry Rubbo

A beautifully engraved rum horn, by Tom Saunders Won By Butch Besmer
And last, but certainly not least, is a wonderful blowing horn with hand spun pewter embellishments, by the team of Don Fererro and Journeyman Horner Bill Carter. Won by Wayne Davis
Now you may be wondering how you can get some tickets for these amazing items and how much it will cost… Tickets will be available through our website and at the Annual Meeting, where the items will be on display. Tickets are only $2.00 each or an even better deal at 6 for $10.00.  I want to say Thank You again to the wonderful artisans that donated this year and to all members who make these raffles possible. Anyone who is interested in donating an item can feel free to contact me at polizzifam@netzero.net.
