Something special in the air…
Happy Fall, Y’all!
The glowing, delicious days of autumn are here! I just love this time of year when the air is fresh and invigorating, and the countryside is awash with vibrant reds and golds. Doesn’t it just put that extra zing in your step! And, of course, I love fall walks, crisp apples, apple crisps and EVERYTHING pumpkin!
In the garden, I swap out the ‘bloom boxes’ for ‘pumpkin pots’, filling urns and window boxes with gourds of all kinds and pumpkins big and small. It’s easy to do and is such an inviting look for fall. Hope is in the air everywhere!
Thanks to the many supportive garden nurseries and friends, it was a fantastic Pink Days In Bloom season, with more to come… And, so, in the spirit of breast cancer awareness, I thought I would share some nice news with you today. The pages below are from a newsletter that I recently shared on Pink Days In Bloom’s facebook page. You can click on any of the photos in this post to enlarge them. October may be Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but locally we’re streeetching it by a couple days to November 2nd!
Bring a friend, or two, or three and make plans for lunch/brunch in the café and then head on up to the third floor Rocket Room to check out the fair. I think you will be pleased with what the vendors have in store for you. Many of them have already begun working on one-of-a-kind items for this wonderful sale.
Did you know that each vendor at “The Little Christmas Fair” makes a $100 charitable donation in support of CBCF-Atlantic in lieu of their table space at the fair? (Some of the vendors don’t normally participate in fairs but they do this one because they have a real connection to the cause and they want to help.) Admission is charged on the door and then there are generally a few holiday-themed raffles. It’s a fun way to raise monies for breast cancer research and community programs. And, of course, we depend on you and your family and friends to all come out in support and have a good time while together we are working toward a future without breast cancer!
I hope you will help spread the word so that we can make this year’s “The Little Christmas Fair” the best yet for our generous vendors who put their hearts and talents into supporting the cause, and for CBCF-Atlantic to help them continue to do their good work in creating a future without breast cancer. Whenever you see something on the Pink Days In Bloom Facebook touting “The Little Christmas Fair”, it would be a really huge help if you would share it on your own page. That will go a long way in helping to get the word out about the fair and bringing more people to the venue.
Of course, greeters and ticket sellers are needed again this year. So, if you’d like to volunteer for a couple hours during the day of the fair (pretteee pleeease), let me know and I’ll put your sweet face on the schedule! Doors open at 11:00 AM and close at 5:00 PM. Volunteer shifts are generally 2-hour shifts with 3 persons working each shift. The shift times are 11AM – 1PM, 1PM – 3PM and 3PM – 5PM. Email me at linda.pinkdaysinbloom@gmail and let me know which shift you’d prefer. Even volunteers have a great time at the fair and many stay long after their shift is over to take it all in! You’ll be contributing to something good! It’s a great feeling that will surely get you into the holiday spirit!
