Although it’s a little gray and damp today, we are clearly out of winter. Finally! I feel as though I looked out the window one morning and GREEN was turned on. All of the trees in my yard had tender leaves on them. Flower plants magically popped up out of the soil. It was as though the winter spigot was turned off, and the spring/summer one was turned on full blast. We earned it this year.
Our book and author lunch was a success. The speaker, Marian Knapp, was funny, warm, and captivating. We still have a few copies of her book Aging in Places at the office if you’d like one. They are $15, and the full amount goes to Neighbor to Neighbor.
We’re now looking forward to November and our big fundraising event. We’re holding our first annual pie auction at the Inn at Manchester celebration barn on November 17th…just in time for Thanksgiving! There will be both silent and live auctions of 100 pies, appetizers, music, and fun. We will announce the details as the time gets closer, but if you’re a master pie baker or know of one (or more), please consider donating a homemade pie to our auction. Both sweet and savory pies are what we’re looking for, the more inventive the better.
