Week In Review -
Starting with Mother’s Day, then American Craft Beer Week, National Etiquette Week, A Frontier Homestead Foundation Board Meeting, Chamber Luncheon and Pumpkin Festival meeting, Art In The Park Press releases, Take the Jeep in to get the 4WD checked, and take two classes on best uses of Power Point, I’m pooped.
Most all went well, but I was sad I wasn’t able to pick up the phone and wish Mom a Happy Day. My best friend and spouse, Tracy, took me to dinner on Friday to avoid the crowds. And the flowers were lovely. They’re about gone now. By accident, I did learn a trick to keeping them fresh longer. If you use liquid plant food for your indoor plants, put one to two drops in the flower water and be sure they have a full vase of water each day. They last 10-14 days if they’re fresh to begin with.
I was disappointed that the media didn’t mention it was National Etiquette Week. If we, as a country, could get back to some standards of Etiquette we would not have road rage, shooting people because they made you mad, and the viscious language used on Social Media. I wrote a blog post last year on Etiquette, you can read that, if you’d like, here.
Frontier Homestead State Park Museum Foundation-
That is a mouthful. It’s the “Friends” group for the local State Park. As Membership Chair for the Board, I’ve been trying to increase membership from 0 to 100 this year. Last year no memberships were renewed and thus we’re starting from scratch. Our new program “Art In The Park – Weekends” kicks off next weekend with Rita Miller and her weavings, and Tracy with his Sand Casting. Both will demonstrate their craft and sell their goods. Catch them Friday and Saturday from 9am to 5pm. Admission is $4 per person or buy a season pass for $40.00. Unlimited entry for a year for a family of 4.
Cedar City Chamber of Commerce –
Monthly Chamber Luncheons
Maria Twitchell is the Director of the Iron County Tourism Bureau and was the guest speaker at the monthly Chamber Luncheon. I’ll have a complete report in a future post.
Chamber Ambassadors – Annual Pumpkin Festival
Reserve Oct. 9th from 10AM to 4PM for the annual Pumpkin Festival. We’re planning now and it’s going to be a great event. If you’d like to help out, do get ahold of me and join the fun. Memberships, sponsorships, and vendors are all needed.
Until next time - - -
