The IFR is offering raffle tickets to try for the Hand-made Quilt most of the 2022 reunion attendees have seen in Crystal River. This raffle is separate from the reunion raffles as you do not have to be present to win. If not present in Branson, the winner will have to pay shipping to receive the quilt if their ticket is chosen. Tickets are $5.00 each or 5 for $20.00 and can be purchased in the IFR store. There are 2 choices so make sure you select the option desired. Your name will be written on each ticket you purchased and will be put into the bucket. The winning Ticket will be pulled at the Branson IFR reunion after the banquet.
