The painting is on display just inside the foyer at the side door of Suffolk Christian Church at 216 North Main Street. It depicts a blue sky puffed with fat clouds and studded with a flock of geese and of course, there are plenty of peanut shocks standing as sentinels in a harvested field. Completing the farm scene, indigenous to Suffolk are the stately loblolly pines that offer greenery to the painting. The colors in the painting make it perfect for almost any dcor.

Tickets for the raffle may be purchased from any member of the board of deacons for $1 each, with all proceeds going toward the missions. You do not have to be present to win.
