More 2012 Old Settlers Giveaways
When you stop by the Library's booth at the upcoming Old Settlers festival (August 5-6-7, 2012, at Pioneer Park in Mooresville, Indiana), you will naturally pick-up a free personalized plastic bag containing our monogrammed fan and other goodies. But six lucky visitors will have special claims tickets in their bags entitling them to (drum roll, if you please): One free hand-crafted basket, courtesy of Baskets From Junior's Farm. Another lucky patron will have (in his or her bag) a free $10 gift card to Marsh Supermarkets, courtesy of the Mooresville Marsh store.
Don't ask moi which bags have these special tickets; there are something like 500 goody bags, so the odds are seven divided by 500 or some such mathematical calculation that I can't be bothered to make. Minions, calculate the odds.
So drop by the MPL Old Settlers booth and grab your bag. Only one bag per patron, please. We'll know if you take more than one. Scowl-Face has a photographic memory. Really.
Want to see what the baskets will look like? They haven't been made yet, but I'm fairly sure they'll look something similar to these pictures below.
Aren't they cute? Yours (well, one, anyway) if you have one of the six claims tickets. If you do, take it to the MPL Old Settlers booth during the festival (when the booth is open, which is typically 5-8 p.m. on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday of next week), or, if it's thereafter, bring it to the Library circulation desk by no later than August 20, 2012, to collect your prize. The contest is free. No purchase necessary. Void where prohibited. One bag per patron. Post no bills. This side up. Do not fold, spindle, or mutilate. That should just about cover things.
Maybe You'll Get a Special Bag If You Bring Moi Canned Tuna-in-Oil (Just Saying),

P.S. Here's "Shine," by Trey Anastasio, from the CD by the same name (2005). There's no connection to my blog topic; I just happened to hear this song on the radio today and remembered how much I really liked it when it came out seven years ago. That's 42 feline years, for those keeping score.
