Thank you Whitinger family for letting us see you all and enjoy the happy, loving family. What a special treat for us.


I agree but the winter will pass more quickly than the previous winter, as seasons (and years) are prone to do, and hopefully, the NARR will return for another season in 2018! Can you believe it, 2018 is just around the corner!

Thank you Dave and all the vendors for such a wonderful NARR season, it's been so much fun. I'm very happy to be included among the winners, but I must say that my favorite NARR so far was the Sept. NARR. What a wonderful group of people we are! Group hug Lovey dubby

Congrats to the winners and thanks to Dave, his family and the vendors.

Thanks to all the vendors for their generous donations! You add to the fun and suspense! Hurray!

Hope to see some new names in the seed swap, as well. You can glean a wealth of knowledge from them and there are fun games to play, too, while anticipating the swap day.

Where would the raffles be without our sponsors??
Dave and Trish do yeomans work and those little children just sitting there, beaming when they held up the tag of a winner! Priceless! It was like you just want to reach out and hug each and everyone of them.
Congratulations all!
