Be sure to bring to bring money to buy raffle tickets from me.  It's for the Friends of Estabrook Park.  Grand prizes are a Fyxation adult custom bike and a Rainbow Jersey Trek youth Farley 24 fat tire bike.  And many other cool prizes.  Ticket are $5 or 3 for $10.  Also, mark your calendar for Sunday June 12th Estabrook Park 100th anniversary celebration at the beer garden.  Besides the raffle there will be fun games music cake and free beer (with an Estabrook park mug, bring your own from previous years or purchase one for $10, or win one in the raffle)!  Noon to three.
