Volunteering For A Fun Festival!

Every year our little town has a festival for all ages, it is called The Great Scarecrow Festival & Antique Fair. Click HERE for more information.

I have posted about this festival before but this time I am not posting because it is time for the festival but because I have started working as a volunteer helping to fix up and create new scarecrows. There was and advertisement in our local paper looking for volunteers for different positions on committee for the festival. Without volunteers from the community the festival will not be able to keep going, so since I enjoy it so much each year I decided to join in the fun and help out. This will be a great way to pass some of the wait time for our adoption as well.

Donna, my Mom and I spent a full Saturday working on some of the scarecrows. We looked through all of the items that have been donated and then we had fun painting new faces and fixing up some scarecrows from previous years. I can’t wait to go back another day and work some more.

I would also like to send some get-well wishes to my Mom who recently had a nerve block. My Mom goes in for this procedure twice a year for her chronic back pain. She is spending the weekend resting and recovering.
