Cookies, Raffles, Music, & Beanies

In two weeks, we will be filling ourselves with dozens of delicious treats! As you digest from one round of cookies and before moving on to the next round, take some time to look over raffle items and Love Yours merchandise. We have new merchandise to show you: beanies, baseball hats and crew neck sweatshirts.

Our raffle prizes include gift cards from Café Amici, Barn Boutique, Hard Hat Café, and many more. We will also be raffling a fresh cut Premium Fraser Fir Christmas tree (4-8’) and a Balsam wreath donated by G.R.O.W.E.R.S Inc. Most of all, we will have live acoustic entertainment from Brian Nolan! Rain or shine, this will be a fantabulous event!
