Great Expectations Fall Fundraiser set
PILLAGER — The third annual Great Expectations Fall Fundraiser is scheduled for Oct. 5-6 at the Pillager fairgrounds. Proceeds will be used to support Sue and Brook McPherson’s horse rescue/rehabilitation facility in Pillager.
The McPhersons take horses in need and rehabilitate them and then find loving homes for them. The goal of the fundraiser is to help with the care of the horses throughout the winter months.
Oct. 5 activities include a fun show with classes for all ages. Classes are Peewee, 10 and under; Junior, 11-17; and Senior, 18 and older. Classes may be combined if there are not enough entries.
The show starts at noon on Oct. 5.
A silent auction will also start at about 11 a.m. on Oct. 5. Interested persons may bring items for the auction to the arts building at the fairgrounds.
On Oct. 6 there will be an 11 a.m. trail ride in the Pillager State Forest. Riders will meet at the second main campground at the park. Day passes at the park are available at the Petro gas station on Highway 210.
