Summer youth interns from the M-Bar-C Ranch in Freeland raised over $1,000 to benefit ranch programs for special needs children by selling hand-crafted deer sculptures at the Bayview Farmers Market earlier this month.
The deer, made from logs and tree branches, were a big hit with market goers and were sold out by the day’s end.
The interns received the Presidential Volunteer Service Award from the Corporation for National and Community Service for contributing at least 100 hours of volunteer time.
The interns were Molly McCammon, Jodie Gregg, Tia Wurzrainer, Claire Canady, Mara Bush, Brian Roberts, Chanse Cheyne, and Avery McCammon.
M-Bar-Ranch is a non-profit children’s charity. The interns volunteer their time during the summer months to help provide a day of western fun for special needs children as well as care for horses and do ranch maintenance.
