The following were the raffle ticket winners drawn on Sunday:
Slice machine basket: Susan Carlo & Nicole Detres
Bo Bunny filled tote: Mary Jo Sikorski & Midge Macko
(Mary Jo's name was actually picked for both Bo Bunny totes. She
graciously accepted a Cricut cartridge as a substitute so someone else could also win a tote!)

Once again thanks to all who participated. I hope everyone had a good time. I'm already starting plans for next year!!!!!
