The Wisconsin Sheep Breeders Co-op had another fantastic year, and the Wisconsin Sheep & Wool Festival was certainly instrumental in that success.
The WSBC Board of Directors invites each and every one of you, and all the guests you can round up, to join us September 6-8 for a magnificent transition weekend into fall.
Experience all that the festival traditionally offers and the latest and greatest innovations that we are bringing to you in 2013.
A major change is in the Shepherds Auction. In order to give more visibility and encourage those on lunch break, we are moving the time to 1:00 p.m. on Saturday in the Activity Center. The proceeds from this auction fund our scholarship program and as we all know, scholarships are becoming more necessary for those furthering their educations. While we most certainly encourage you to come and bid and buy, we would also like to ask you to consider donating an item for this fundraiser. It does not need to be sheep or wool related. Some of our most popular items have been Packer and Badger memorabilia.
So turn on your thinking caps. What have you seen on charity auctions in the past? Please give Director Tim Miller a call with any thoughts or items that you would like to donate. You can reach him by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are always searching for ways to offer benefits to our members. We have fallen short with our Bred Ewe Sale held in the fall, so we wanted to try a new path. Under the guidance of Steve Bingen, we are preparing for the 1st annual STOCK EXCHANGE.
Be sure to read all about it and plan to rent a pen or two and help us make this event a roaring success. The concept is actually very open and inviting. No fitting or showing involved. I think it will be a great way to market, or add to your flock.
See you at the FESTIVAL!
