Fall is Here
The autumn equinox occurred on September 23rd this year, marking the first day of Fall. While it may not bring cooler days, I’m beginning to see the change of season in my garden and trees. I made my first pot of Fall soup last night, serving it with crusty bread and crackers. I’m having to wear my hoodie when I take my morning walk. We’re able to enjoy the fire pit a bit earlier each evening.
Fall has always been my favorite time of year. I enjoyed being with my Mom while she canned the garden harvest. I spent many hours in front of the TV shelling beans and pecans. Our school’s homecoming was the anticipated event as it was the kickoff to the Fall and Holiday season. I grew up in a very small town. The event was more for the community than just the school. There were pep rallies and events the entire week leading up to the bonfire which was always my favorite. This, of course, was held the night before the big game and the crowning of the Homecoming queen. After the big game, most would head to the Dairy Queen to finish the evening visiting with family, friends and alumni. It was the one event that brought the community together.
In October, we are hosting an “OPEN HOUSE” to showcase all that our guild has to offer. The event is open to everyone who would like to spend an evening learning about the guild. We will hear from our Charity partners and Business Members. Our program schedule for 2024 will be announced, as well.
Also, our big event for the evening is the start of the FALL AUCTION. This year’s auction has 100+items and will run until October 22. You don’t want to miss seeing (and bidding) on all of the wonderful items that will be available for purchase!
I hope that you will join us for both events. Our “Open House” will be IN-PERSON with livestreaming available on Zoom, so invite your friends and neighbors to attend either one, or both, of these fun festivities. This is the time to share our guild with our community.
