Good morning, dear friends. Don’t worry, be happy!
Want to thank Roland for his very good column entitled, “Where have all the birds gone?” We, along with many others, have been concerned about the total disappearance of all the birds this summer. Have missed watching the many different kinds at our bird feeders and then they just up and stopped showing up at all! Then this last week a few chickadees, ( which are my favorites) arrived and I was so happy to welcome them back.
The Solon Congregational Church Holiday Craft Fair is coming right up on Saturday, November 11, at the Solon Elementary School from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. This craft fair has been growing each year and there are many great crafters and vendors again this year. There will be Scentsy, Lula Rue Clothing, wood crafts, hand made crafts by Rachel Danner, Alpaca goods, great crafts and food made by Patty LeHay, candles, knitted crafts, just to name a few! There will be the popular Kid’s Holiday Shopping room, where they can shop for items for family members for under $1 and have help wrapping it up, all by themselves, no adults allowed! Another popular thing that has been expanded is the Basket Raffle, where there will be 15-plus themed baskets to buy chances on, some of the themes are Family Game Night, Pets, Thanksgiving Dinner, Tail Gate Party, Christmas themed, Movie Night, Boy and Girl themed, etc.
As usual the kitchen will be open for breakfast and lunch, with yummy selections and the bake table! Hope you plan to check us out! It sounds like a great fair as always.

The following wise words are some that Percy used back on June 23, 2011: this is entitled Reach Out with Love: Reach out with love it’s here to stay, Generously share it every day. Each one of us has much to give, If only we can learn to live. For every thought and word and deed, To make it worthwhile it’s love we need. And when we feel that love is shown, We speak a language all its own! To make impressions wealth is spent, But to reach out with love doesn’t cost a cant! (words by Hedwig Wroblewski.)
Responsible journalism is hard work!
It is also expensive!
