If you have not told us of your intention to show in Kentucky or Michigan this summer, please let us know asap.  We cannot guarantee stalls at this point.

Thank you to everyone who has supported our Lending Library.  We have gotten a good cross section of hard cover and paperback books donated.   There is something for everyone.  For the little brothers, we have Captain Underpants.  For our pony crowd, we have one of my favorite childhood books, Misty of Chincoteague.  Fun Fact!  I liked this book so much when I was little, I made my parents take me to Chincoteague!   My contribution to the library is The Gifted School.  I would give it a B+. Check these books out along with many more good choices. 

Happy Easter!
