Got great feedback about the day; lots of great photo opps of smiling faces; someone from the local paper stopped by; many LIKES on our Facebook page.
We really couldn't have done it without our FRIENDS group who manned the Used Book Sale and donated bottles of water for the event; the local police, ambulance, fire dept. and one of our own staff families for bringing their respective car/trucks/tractor; the volunteer kids provided through a local event put on by Sticks College; a local family who brought their 4-H animals; and our hardworking staff. Everything was a hit! It really really does take a village!

Bestie L and her 3 girls came down Friday night and came for our Kick-Off today.
I was so happy to see them!

|Not sure what the final total is, but we sold LOTS of books! |
We put out over 1,100!
|Definitely my favorite animals! These guys were hysterical, while we were setting up they |
antagonized the yappy neighbor dogs by bleating something that sounds like, "HEEEEEYYYY!" loudly. :)
