70's contest will be judged on Saturday evening.  We will have all
ladies participating in the contest join us on stage immediately
following the last class of the day on Saturday.

Door Prizes...

We understand that some of
you cannot stay until midnight and we also realize that a lot of you
want to just crop Saturday night and not be interrupted all night with
door prizes. So with this being said, we have decided to hand out door

The very last door prize of the day will be given out immediately following the last class of the day.

we're "Croppin' in the 70's," so let's break into those storage trunks
and bring out those 70's clothes. The Best dressed cropper will receive
the prize.

We ask that you wear your costume on Saturday morning.  We will announce the winner shortly after lunch.

Americans we are aware of how the economy has affected our lifestyles. 
For some of us we can only begin to imagine what it must be like for
families that have lost their jobs and/or homes.  We have a tendency to
take for granted the simple things in life such as having food on our
tables.  This year we have decided to have a food drive in addition to
our Bailey Faith Christmas Give Back.

How many of you are guilty of
purchasing something every time you go to the store  only to realize
that when you get home you already had a cabinet full of that item.  I
am so guilty of purchasing Cream of Chicken Soup.  Just the other day
my husband so kindly rearranged my cabinets and discovered I had 14
cans of Cream of Chicken Soup.   What in the world am I going to do
with 14 cans of soup after all I can't cook!

I am asking you to please open your
cabinets and if you have more than one of something throw it in a bag
and bring it with you to the Extravaganza.  I am asking all of my
employees bring at least one can good with them on Friday to start this
drive off.  Just think if we all bring one can good we will have 450
cans of food. 

Ladies you are Awesome!


only thing better than a whole day of scrapbooking is a whole day of
scrapbooking with chocolate! Bring your snacks and turn them in at
registration. We will fill several boxes with everyone's goodies and
then bring them out Saturday afternoon - just when you need that
chocolate rush to finish out those last few classes.

All snacks must be individually wrapped.

For example:

Peanut Butter Crackers, cookies, Candy, Cheese Nips.

Absolutely no dips or sauces.  Drinks can be purchased from the concession stand.
