We are planning our 4th Missouri "Down on the Farm" Raggedy Gathering May 1, 2010.
I want to make sure everyone has time to mark their calendar and plan for a fun day. We live approximately 70 miles North East of Kansas City, Missouri or 70 miles East and South of St. Joseph, Missouri or 130 miles West and South of Hannibal, Missouri. Directions will be furnished at your request.
Come as early as 10:00 a.m. and stay late. Lunch will be at 1:00. The meal will be catered. and consist of 2 meats, 3 sides, salad, bread, drink and dessert. Cost will be $10 per person to cover cost of meal, drinks and snacks. To insure the availability of the meal please reply by April 23, 2010. The evening meal will be ordered in pizza for whoever wants to stay. Cost to be divided.
Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy will be playing with the farm animals this year. Maizie Moocow will be the special guest.
Bring your collectibles for show and tell.
Please bring pictures of your collection. Items to sell or trade if you want. Bring lawn chairs where possible.
We will be having a gift exchange for those people that would like to participate. You should bring a Raggedy gift, costing between $10 and $15 dollars. It may be worth more but that is what you paid for it. We will draw numbers for the gifts. It is a lot of fun. Remember a video or something that is worth $1 dollar would not be something that you would bring for a gift.
Camping for RV vehicles is available at the farm. Motels are at Chillicothe (20 miles North East), Carrollton (30 miles South East), or Cameron (40 miles North West) of our farm. Names and phone numbers of motels will be given on request.
Several have made their reservations for The Best Western in Chillicothe in case you would like to be with the group. For those who are there on Friday we will meet for an evening meal and for breakfast on Sunday morning before going home. This makes for an extended weekend of fun for those traveling a distance. Please share this letter with your friends.
Hope to see everyone this year. Welcome!!!!
