This is the second year we will raffle a carving for a local cause. This year the money will go to the school music program. My neice has a son in 7th grade, and he is learning to play guitar through this program. They have a husband and wife team teaching and they are fantastic. We live in the country and have less then 100 kids in the whole school. The school was built in 1928. There aren’t enough kids for a regular band, so they teach guitar, drums, and bass, which makes a lot more sense then the tuba any way( nothing against the tuba). My neice and her friend really hustle to sell tickets at some of the bigger towns in the area and also set up a booth at all the home basketball games where they bug the heck out of everybody to buy tickets. Last year we raised $3400 and hope to do even better this year.We draw the winning ticket at the last home basketball game of the season…......I forgot,this is a piece of redwood driftwood found at cape blanco on the oregon coast. Cape Blanco is the farthest westerly point in the continental united states and is my favorite place for driftwood. It’s 2 hours from home. It is one of the few beaches in Oregon that is still legal to drive on,otherwise a lot of the wood I get would be to heavy to carry.
