Derby Days!

What a great time we all had last Saturday night at Derby Days!  We had a delicious meal followed by a dessert auction (yum!), a live auction, and a horserace.  We also had a silent auction going on the whole time, with some really great finds to bid on.  Sadly, we didn't have enough time in the end to run more than one horserace, but it turned out really well, and the horses were magnificent!

Photo Finish: Ebisu in the lead, followed by Wild Spirit and Not so SLO, tied for second place.  Trailing are Swirly Stallion, Tiger Pride and Views of the Meadow.
Ziyad Naccasha was the lucky owner of the winning horse, Ebisu, created by graphic designer Taylor Chase of Roku Roku Design in Atascadero.

Taffy Gonzalez won the Hat Parade with this wispy topper.

Teach Elementary a unique, quality educational program.
