We had a GREAT 4Th of July even though I helped at the lodge helping prepare for it for 3 days. We chopped ,baked and decorated. Hey we had wine so it made things go MUCH faster!! ;op Ive helped with the raffle part the last 3 or 4 years and it is ALWAYS fun!! Dee and I had a good time and it went FAST!! So we got to enjoy a wonderfully Sunny and warm day!!

Monkey Boy REALLY REALLY liked the water balloons! Hey got his dad more then once!
Coke Machine,Boon and the girls got into the kids games and enjoyed the balloon toss. I think Boon needed the practice so he could dodge Monkey BOY!!
The Lodge always has a HUGE barbecue and there largest fund raiser for the year on the 4Th. The tickets are a 100 bucks that gets you food and beer for the whole day and a chance to win 12000.00 dollars!! One my tickets was in the last batch of 20 UGH so close yet sooooo far!! Sunny and Nancy Smith from Glacier won and I just love those 2 so much I couldn't be anything but HAPPY for them! What was even better there son Mark came instead of them and when he called them to let them know they had won they called him a damn liar LOL took him 20 minutes to convince them they were $12000.00 richer!
The joy of working the raffle is that you get to give the winners there checks!! Here is my Dad who won for selling the winning ticket and Jan collected a few hundeys for 10Th and 100Th draw.
