We would like to thank everyone who attended our Mager Mountain Alpacas open house and helped us celebrate our 10th anniversary of raising alpacas.
A warm thank you to all who donated to the Smile Train Charity, totaling $150 and my grandchildren, who cooked the hot dogs, to make that possible.
Congratulations to all who won prizes, including Kathy Weishan, who won a large, Pronkbear teddy bear, by sinking three golf balls in the putt-putt contest.
Other winners included Bill Wood of Springville, who won an alpaca blanket; Hayden Rodger Olson won a junior Pronkbear; Ashton Cook of East Otto, who won a baby Pronkbear and Sandy Sullivan from Bemus Point won a knit alpaca. Congratulations to all participants.
A special thanks to Amanda Grabowski and Annie Widger for their spinning demonstrations and information of this ancient art.
Another special thanks to Cathie Bridges of R.A. Mercer P.C., for answering questions on the tax codes.
The alpaca kissing booth, operated by Greg and Nancy Whelan, was a huge success. Everyone got a chance to touch an alpaca and feel why their fleece is so soft and special. Each person received a photo of themselves with an alpaca, to help them remember the experience.
A special thanks to our son, daughter and their families, who helped greet visitors and answer questions. Hopefully, everyone left with a better understanding of these rare and unique animals and why we raise them.
