1:00PM – 6:00PM
Huge Raffle, Ferrety Games, Sales Items
Pot Luck Lunch, Refreshments and Great Ferret People!
We, the GCFA, cordially invite every one and every ferret to help us celebrate this glorious season at our annual GCFA Holiday Party. Our holiday party is a celebration and a thank you to each one of you for your generous help and support throughout the year.
Your generosity was especially appreciated this year during the sorrowful time of the distemper outbreak at the shelter. We experienced profound heartbreak, but we were thankful for the ferrets that survived the horrible distemper virus. As a reminder, ferrets are always welcome at the holiday party, but they must be current on distemper vaccine.
The holiday party will be held from 1:00 pm until 6:00 pm at 320 E. Wildwood, Villa Park, IL in the Community Recreation Building at Lyons Park. This location is a very short drive from many of the major expressways.
There will be a potluck lunch and it would be greatly appreciated if you could bring something for everyone to share, but it is not necessary. The GCFA will provide soft drinks, water and coffee.
There will be ferrety games for you and your ferret to enjoy. We will have our famous tube race, paper bag escape and the kissing contest. There is no charge for participation in any of the games and if you participate in the tube race, you get to take the three foot, black drainage tube home with you for your ferrets to keep enjoying!
The most popular event is the costume contest. Get your imagination in gear to create a fabulous costume for your fuzzy friend. A first place prize will be given out in each of our games and also for the costume contest.
For your holiday shopping, there will be sales tables with a plethora of wonderful new items and handmade items. I am sure you will be able to find some great presents to give your ferrets or a present for a special someone.
We will also have our famous annual holiday raffle. There are a lot of really great ferret items and wonderful gift baskets for humans and ferrets too.
We hope to see you all there on December 7th to share in the festive celebration of the holidays. Please come and join in the special bond that comes when ferret owners all get together and have FUN!!!!
HAPPY HOLIDAYS FROM THE GCFA!!!
COME CELEBRATE THE JOY OF OWNING FERRETS!!
