News Flash…Rockin’ Rodeo

News Flash…Rockin’ Rodeo November 27, 2009

The Arts & Cookery Bank will be rockin’ on Friday night and you’re invited to come see what they’ve got cookin’ for the whole family. Stop by before or after the Parade. Bring a friend.

Meet Pablo and Get “Shot” (by a camera, of course)

Pablo (The Mighty Pabs), a gentle horse of the very best kind, will be outside The Bank where you can have your family’s or child’s photo taken with him. Or go ahead… get one of yourself and your friends. This free photo will be emailed to you before Christmas.

Get your paws on the Ultimate Stocking Stuffer.

Our next Early Bird “Break the Bank” draw for $500 Christmas spending money takes place on December 11. Lay your money down. Tickets you buy now will also be eligible for the $5000 Grand Prize on April 2, 2010. Tickets are only $5 each. Buy 4– get one FREE.

With much better odds than a lottery ticket (only 5 000 tickets will be sold), your purchase helps build The Bank and the money stays right here in the community.

Your “Break the Bank” tickets are THE Ultimate Stocking Stuffer for 2009.

Perfect to have on hand for those extra little gifts, for the hard-to-buy-for, or for the one who has everything. (if you can’t make it on Friday night, call the office 519-768-9986 and we’ll send the Pony Express)

Feeling’ Lucky, Pardner?

Adults – you can also try your hand at the Candle Shoot Out. Shoot out the flame and win a free ticket for the “Break the Bank” draw.

Pony up to the Bar

Enjoy edible Haystacks and cider, courtesy of The Bank. Kids can decorate Cow Patty Cookies to take with them – or eat right there at The Bank. Napkins provided!

We’re on the Lookout

The 1000th visitor to The Bank will soon pass through our doors. It could be YOU or someone in your family! Be sure to get your numbered goodie when you come in. If you are number 1000, you’ll win a Prize.

Don’t Miss the Train

In just a few months The Arts & Cookery Bank will open. Get on board to receive our newsletters, program information and an invitation to our Grand Opening. Sign up with your email address and we’ll enter your child’s name (or a child you know) into a draw for a stocking full of Christmas goodies.
