Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns. ~George Eliot
I chose George Eliot’s autumn inspiration for various reasons. Some may remember her for her noted novel, “Silas Marner”, while others are wondering why I wrote “she”. Yes, George Eliot is a pen name and I think she would be quite impressed by our
progress, ladies. J.K. Rowling had no need to write under the premise of being a male to get recognition for her works. We’ve come a long way from those Victorian years. Or have we? Food for thought.
I move on to less controversial territory…..Our first General Meeting was a wonderful success. The hospitality group dazzled us with a beautiful table setting filled with an extreme amount of delicious choices made by our membership. We had a vivacious social hour followed by an informative “business” meeting. We need to note that we have a tremendous amount of events coming up to delight all your interests. It won’t be hard to find multiple activities to engage in this year. You will be happy to hear we have at least 16 new members! Bravo to all who have used their recruiting skills to bring them aboard.
Our focus this month is the Fall Fair on Saturday, October 20 th at 11 am to 3pm. Please print / email the flyer and distribute to all you know who would find this event a delightful way to pass a fall afternoon with food, fun, and frolicking. There is still time to sign up on the SignupGenie (see link to the right) for several tasks that have not been filled. Let’s all join in to make this event a success for our club and community.
Now I return to our beloved 19 th century novelist. If she is living her heavenly dream by being a bird and soaring over the autumn skies, I beseech her to please bless our fair with good weather and a good time for all.
