For the record, there was a Waynesburg Sheep & Fiber Festival committee meeting today. We met at Groovy's American Cafe --- during the festival last spring, we recommended this local restaurant to a group of vendors who were staying overnight in Waynesburg. Plans have been underway for the 2010 festival to be held again at the Greene County Fairgrounds. As craft/fiber vendor chairman, WRF will be reporting on our vendor survey from last year's festival. 2009 was our first year at the fairgrounds. Of course, there's always room to improve and we welcome any feedback and new volunteers. Stay tuned for updates here and for the WS&FF website to be updated for 2010.
Hurried home since we were expecting John to pick up the 4 Dorset ewes that he bought. It rained for the whole drive back on Rt 18. Too bad, because the leaf peeping would have been really nice. John, his father, and a friend arrived at Wild Rose Farm before dusk and we loaded the ewes plus an additional Dorset ewe lamb into the stock trailer. She was the first lamb born this year and is a very good sized lamb. Hopefully the sheep do well at their new farm. No pictures since it was dark & rainy! :~(
