I cannot believe it is mid-September already. Christmas is barely 3 months away. Then goodbye 2017. The good news is for sports fans. Football is on! Go Cougars!
I am looking forward to a colorful fall. We haven’t had a long drought this year and all the trees are looking healthy and happy. A nice little cold snap in a few weeks could really turn those leaves beautiful colors.
The Clay County Arts Council, Inc. will kick off the new season with the annual Fall Fashion Show on November 2. This year it will be at the Piggott Community Center to accommodate a larger crowd. Dinner, fashion show, silent auction, and music by Larry Norred; it’s all going to happen for your enjoyment and entertainment. The silent auction supports the scholarship program offered by the CCAC to high school children in Clay County. Tickets can be purchased from any board member and several locations in Rector and Piggott. Lisa Jett has tickets in Corning. Take a look at their Facebook page for more information.
Rector Downtown Central will be showing Hocus Pocus in the Downtown Park on October 14. Perfect, don’t you think. It should be cool enough to bring out the blankets and hot chocolate and cider. That is one of my favorite movies of all time too. Start marking your calendars. It is going to be a busy fall.
My novel is finally out. “Echoes From The Ashes” is for sale on Amazon in paperback and e-book. Hopefully the Nook version will be out this week. You can find out about it on the website: www.echoesfromtheashes.com or on the Facebook page. Of course, you could also contact me.
What else is going on? Give me a call or send me an email and I will let others know about your upcoming or past events.
I want to give another shout out to the men and women who have gone to the coasts to help in the storm ravaged areas. I spoke with my cousin in League City, TX yesterday. Even though the flood waters have subsided there, water still stands in many places and with millions of people affected, it will take some time just to be contacted by FEMA. There is help needed and many who won’t even qualify for FEMA assistance who have lost everything. It is a daunting future for them. Three more storms are threatening our eastern coastline. It would be nice to see an early cold front or two to push them out to sea.
