Marilee Richards was the lucky winner of the quilt at the Skyline VFD Picnic this year. Esther Wrinkles made the queen size quilt; a pattern called Stripes and Scraps, and sold the winning ticket as well.
Ms. Wrinkles said that she had stepped into the First Savings and Loan to get some copies of the tickets made, which they are pleased to do in support of the Skyline VFD. Ms. Richards made the copies of the tickets and bought the very first ones that Esther sold this year. She will receive the quilt later this week and will have plenty of reason to be happy. Such a beautiful quilt will likely keep Ms. Richards participating in the Skyline Picnic for years to come.
Brenda Paul was the winner of the $100.00 of free electricity donated to the Skyline VFD by Jeff Pardeck of the White River Valley Electric Co-Op. The annual gift by White River Electric is one of the mainstays of the Skyline Picnic.
Bernard and Brenda Paul moved to the area about a year ago from Oklahoma. She said that this was certainly a good welcoming to the community and she is looking forward to becoming acquainted with the area and with the people.

Buzz Woods won the drawing for the Nikon 3 x 9 x 40-rifle scope that was donated by Out Back Gun and Rod of Norwood. The Out Back outfit has long been a big supporter of the Skyline Volunteer Fire Department, so has Buzz Woods. The 2010 Skyline Picnic was a win-win situation.
