 “After a good dinner one can forgive anybody, even one’s own relations.” Oscar Wilde, A Woman of No Importance

Thanksgiving dinner is by far my favorite meal of the year. The preparation is nearly as fun as the consumption! I suppose that the food is the main focus on this day. But, in fact, the day should be one where we reflect upon our many blessings. If I were to choose the greatest gift I have received in my life I wouldn’t be able to choose just one. However, the many friends I have in my life are truly an amazing gift for which I am grateful every day of my life! I want to thank each and every one of you for enriching my life. You are truly an amazing group of ladies with class, intellect, and talent. May Thanksgiving bring you together with family and friends and be a day of gratitude for all that you have been blessed. Fall Fair Update… And a good time was had by all! A few months ago, a member emerged to oversee the upcoming fair. Today, we can send kudos to Christina James for continuing the tradition. She far exceeded expectations. She worked to obtain sponsorships which allowed our community to enjoy a fun filled afternoon FREE of charge. Pony and horse rides were provided as well as amazing caricature drawings. Balloon sculptures, instrument exploring, and a very scary haunted forest was created by the Boy Scouts. Even a police cruiser was on hand for curious minds to explore! The pie eating contest, though messy was great fun. The Girl Scouts were so gracious as they conducted games for the little ones to partake in. The Bowers, Chip and Sue, once again oversaw the smoked turkey raffle as well as the delicious pulled pork. The kitchen was buzzing with all hands on deck to serve a scrumptious lunch and to sell wonderful baked goods headed up by Trecia Buster. Crafters set up their works and provided beautiful items for purchase. Many thanks to members who made generous donations to cover the cost of hay bales. We couldn’t have asked for a better day to hold the fair. As I walked the grounds on Saturday and viewed all the families partaking in a good old-fashioned event, my heart sang! This was all made possible by the many volunteers including our past fair chair, Majorie Shearer, who worked so hard to see that all ran smoothly. This is truly a club that works together so well to get things done! Congratulations, Christina, for a job well done! We welcome you back to chair Fair 2019! Kathy Zichi President
