We will be having a auction around lunch time with the proceeds going to the Family of Evan Mickle APF who passed away late last year leaving behind his young family. We would love to encourage those of you who will be attending to make something to place in the auction. Mr Jerry Fowler has agreed to act as our auctioneer. We plan to begin the auction around lunch. It seems the largest crowd shows up for the fried chicken. At any rate we hope many of you will join us in trying to help this young family who has lost a husband and a father and show our support as a community who has lost a great farrier. Look forward to any contributions or hand made goodies.
