Monkey Drawing

"One of the Monkey's from last Grand Chapter's drawing, ran away at Grand Chapter before they had the drawing, but by luck the Monkey returned scared.  Several members got together to decide what to do with this run away Monkey today (Sun. Aug 7th)???? PGP Gary Craig was asked to draw the winning ticket since he was in the groups discussion. And we all wanted to give this monkey a home without any of us having to watch out for her any longer.  The three pictures I took below, document this drawing and includes the winning ticket (with the winners name) that Gary drew."  Out of 100 tickets this person is the lucky winner:)

Thank you,
Kay Foss
