Once again this coming Saturday on July 11th we are hosting a fundraiser for the Alzheimer’s Association on our farm. Cost is $100/couple which includes all you can eat/drink. We will have any outstanding auction starting at 6pm. For complete listings of the auction please go to our web site at www.dunlaplivestock.com. If you would like to attend please contact Jon @ 712-263-0755. What a wonderful 4th of July. I’m always reminded of the lyrics, “I’m proud to be an American, where at least I know I’m free”. Yes I am proud, but I reminded my kids how LUCKY we are just to be here. By nothing more than luck of our birth right, we have been afforded the opportunity to live in this majestic land we call home. God Bless the USA! County Fairs are starting to roll around. Good luck to all the 4-H families that make this time of year so much fun!!
