On Sunday, October 14, 2009, the UP Fund had a major fundraiser with a $10,000 raffle prize. It was called the Moulton Farm Family Fall Festival.
This was our last chance to sell tickets and members were out in force, selling, helping out by bagging farm products and baked goods or doing whatever needed to be done at the time. John Moulton once again set up a stand for us to sell chances and for the fifth year in a row he donated ALL the receipts from ALL baked goods sold that day. How great is that!! John is a real supporter of the fund and has been since it was started and we sure do appreciate everything he does. As Annie would say “We love you John.”
The day was pretty nippy but hundreds came out to have some fun and most came dressed for the occasion. There were so many things to do that if you had not planned to spend at least a couple of hours you missed something.
For example, they offered a Kids Tractor Pull, a live Band, tractor rides, corn maze, bungee jumping, rock climbing, carve or paint your own pumpkin contest and even pumpkin bowling and so much more.
The “UP” Fund drawing was to be held at 2:00pm and about five minutes before, the crowd started to gather around our stand and you could just tell that everyone wanted to be “the winner” and the excitement was exhilarating.
Raffle Winners were:
$10,000 – Dr. George T. Felt, Meredith, NH
$1,000 – Mr. Garry Sherry, North Conway, NH
$500 – Mr. & Mrs. Frank Bednarck, Holden, Mass
It’s always special fun when someone local wins.b Our congratulations go out to all the winners.
THE FUND WISHES TO THANK EVERYONE FOR ALL THE DONATIONS WE HAVE RECEIVED OVER THE YEARS.
WITHOUT THE CONTINUED SUPPORT YOU HAVE GIVEN TO US WE WOULDN”T BE WHERE WE ARE TODAY.
