Thank you to those of you who participated in our summer of the ship. With eleven festivals and five parades behind us, it goes without saying that we met some wonderful people, endured rain, wind, and cold, laughed a lot, learned more, and were not the same going into fall as we were heading into summer and that’s a good thing. It’s been a great summer.
Needless to say, time to tally those raffle tickets at the Richmond Good Old Days Festival the second weekend in September and we didn’t make our minimum in ticket sales to raffle off the ship, rather it reverted to a 50/50 cash raffle instead. I will say, however, that Sandra Johnson, our lucky winner out of southeast Michigan is super happy with a prize just over $700! Congratulations!!
And we won’t let the cat out of the bag just yet, but a wonderful city in the thumb may be purchasing the ship to be parked on its shores.
