We were barely home from Atlanta, and we set up our tent in Fairborn for the Halloween Festival! This is one we really look forward to - so many great costumes and characters to see, and friends to connect with. Friday night was great - chilly but dry. Saturday, not so much. Trick or treating started around 5:00 which, as it happens, was when the rain started. We felt so bad for the kids, and their parents. So many stuck it out, so did we. But around 7:30 or so, the rain really took over and by 8:00 the only folks around were those waiting to be in the Zombie Walk; so most of the vendors, including Kathy's Pink Goal, gave up and packed up. We really hated to leave, but couldn't risk getting our merchandise ruined by the rain. All in all, it was a good weekend. Good sales, and lots of donations in the jar. We have to say, we have never seen the jar getting this full so early. Can't wait to see what is in it by next summer.
Oh, and I mentioned that I am walking in Philadelphia next year, I forgot to say that it will be a special year for me. I will be celebrating my 60th birthday in June, and in October I will be walking 60 miles! So I started a team: 60 at 60! Hoping other folks in my age group will join me in marking this special year! I have set my goal for the 2016 walk at $6000! See a pattern? With your help, I'll make it.
Upcoming events: Nov 1 - Springfield High School, Nov 7 - Ascension School, Nov 21 - Fairmont High School, Dec 5 - St Helen School.
And finally, very excited to announce that we will be at the Dayton Demolition Hockey Team's Pink on the Rink night on Feb 21 and also at the Dayton Home and Garden Show on March 18-21!
Well, that's about it - See you soon- Take Care!
