This was originally posted on facebook, but since I have a few dear friends, who will never ever be on facebook, (cough, Sharon, Gina, Theresa, Maria...) and therefore never ever see it, I decided it would make a good first blog entry.
The 2011 Deschutes River Float is in the books. Our theme this year was "Lewis and Clark". We had a few explorers, we had a few Indians, but mostly, we had a good time! We call it the Deschutes River Float, but it's a weekend long party, with food, friends, and good times!
This year, we had a 50/50 raffle. The winning ticket would get half the money, while the other half, would go to The Doernbecher's Childrens Hospital, in Portland. By Saturday evening, we had collected $180!
The winner of the 50/50 raffle was Sheila, who generously donated her winnings back to the Children! Billy said he would match it, for a total of $360 going to the Doernbecher's Childrens Hospital.
The prize for "Participant who came the farthest to be with us" went to Lloyd "Bodean" Wells. Bodean and Sheila, flew in from Kansas!
