Don’t cry cute little Clementine, it’s true – YOU’RE A WINNER!

During Silver Falls’ Christmas Festival this past December, the Stevenson family took a moment and filled out a survey to let us know how the event went and entered the raffle to win a free stay in a cabin at the Silver Falls Lodge & Conference Center.

…and they won the grand prize!  They shared their joy by taking a picture with one of our youngest Oregon State Park fans.

Here’s their email after they found out they had won and were asked to share a “selfie” with their prize coupon…
