Wine and Music at the Farm!
No, not at my Critter Farm...but at another farm that means a lot to me - and to scores of formerly abused, neglected, and abandoned farm animals.
Today is the Lighthouse Farm Animal Sanctuary's biggest event of the year: Wine & Music at the Farm! Last year was a blast and, as always, it is simply delightful to wander the farm visiting and petting many of the 100+ animals who have been fortunate enough to find refuge at this peaceful place:
These llamas remind me of Pistol, my donkey, who will always offer visitors the opportunity to scratch his hind-end. I wonder if llamas like that sort of thing, too?:
Here are the details for today if anyone should happen to be in the neighborhood :-) :
Date of Event: Saturday, September 27, 2008
Time of Event: 3:00 PM to 7:00 PM
From the Lighthouse website:
"The Lighthouse Farm Sanctuary’s Annual Wine and Music at the Farm “FUN”draiser is almost upon us. To make this year’s event more enjoyable, we’ve added more activities such as a hay ride, increased our hours and it is FREE!
Also this year, we are making the event available to the whole family, although an ID will be required to purchase wine. Food, wine and entertainment - as well as a handmade quilt raffle and silent and oral auctions - will be the main focus of this event. However, don’t forget you’ll be able to meet and greet the animals that now call the sanctuary their home.
This year’s entertainment will be the lively McG’s of Eugene. Fiddle player Hannah McGowan has joined with her father, Sean McGowan, on a voyage of musical discovery through Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and England. Come along as they present traditional music of Britain and beyond.
Tax dollars do not fund these animals in need. Your hearts do. We hope to see you there!"
