Lighthouse Farm Sanctuary Gentle Thanksgiving & Pig Party

If you just happen to be in the northwest Oregon area this Saturday and are looking for a fun family activity to participate in...

From the press release and website:

Join us this Saturday, November 22, 2008 at the Lighthouse Farm Sanctuary, 36831 Richardson Gap Rd., Scio, OR 97374 from 12:00PM to 3:00PM.

Help us celebrate a “Gentle Thanksgiving” by honoring the formerly abused and neglected farm animals now living at the Sanctuary. Meet our latest arrivals – Pepper and Jacks, victims of starvation, and Rosebud and her family of piglets who survived the Iowa floods.

Enjoy hot apple cider, tea, muffins and other goodies. Most important, don’t forget to bring apples and carrots for the animals.

This event is free to the public and is our way of thanking our supporters and letting our animal ambassadors show their appreciation for your generosity.

  1. My husband (truckdriver) is delivering in Oregon Friday. I am going to ask him if he will be near there and if so please stop by. Thanks for sharing the information.

  2. Hi peggy - that would be very cool if you husband happened to be driving through that part of Oregon. Scio does, however, tend to be off the beaten path a bit -but well worth the journey, in my opinion! Anyway, if he does manage to make it there, please ask him to be sure to introduce himself - I'll be there!

  3. Oh how I wish I was closer. I would SO come to this. Have fun Danni and please pat the piggies for me.

  4. Sounds like fun, wish I was not on the complete opposite end of the country!

  5. Oh what a fun day this would be, if only we were in Oregon this time of year rather than summer time. Have a wonderful day lovin' all those critters!

  6. Have fun Danni!!! Lots of pets from me!!

  7. I'm so glad I ran into your blog. I think you're my new hero.

  8. Oh darn we are booked for Saturday or I would love to come. It is even maybe, we hope, not going to rain...yeah right!

  9. Hey Danni, I hope the event goes well and is a roaring success in every way!

    BTW, I have an award for you over at my place.


  10. I LOVE the sanctuary pictures!

    You asked about dog biscuits and stout: we did make both. The first is super easy, the second required a friend who does a lot of home brew. But I'm super happy to share recipes for both!

  11. I do want to make it down there for one of their functions sometime!

  12. I hope you took lots of pictures to share again.

  13. Hi Danni,
    I sure wish I was closer or even close. I would love to attend any of their functions.

    I also wanted to wish you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving.

  14. Happy Turkey Day...
