    Hi Leslie, Our Lodge camping group is donating a gift card tree of some sort. I don’t know if we should reserve a spot at a table in the vendor room or have it with the table of other donations that someone else will be watching? If we reserve a spot how do we do that? We will only have the one item. We are Chula Vista Lodge 2011. Terry Baird is the wagonmaster and I am his wife. Pat Baird
