Family & Friends ‘Western Round-Up’ offered events galore
Camp Verde, AZ – Western wear and Rainbow Acres t-shirts ruled the day as family, friends and guests enjoyed the annual Rainbow Acres Family & Friends Weekend on Friday and Saturday, October 26 and 27.
On Saturday, during the Open House, guests enjoyed walking tours of the campus, demonstrations at the barn, updates on the greenhouses, Rancher presentations on Life Science and Horticulture topics, the annual Rainbow’s Got Talent Show, and a special recognition ceremony for the Ranchers.
For shoppers, the Gift Shop featured Rancher-created arts and crafts including stepping stones, woven items, Rancher paintings, and other decorative crafts. All proceeds benefit the Ranchers directly.
In addition, Rainbow Acres hosted a Silent Auction, the Rancher Choir performed, nearly everyone participated in the Talent Show Friday evening, and the entire group concluded the weekend with a picnic lunch on the Daehler lawn Saturday noon.
Families and guests got to experience what Rainbow Acres is all about! Our Ranchers warmly welcomed new friends to their home. Thanks to our many volunteers who helped make this event a huge success!
