Is there anything more sublime that hanging out at the park on a perfect summer evening, playing with the kids, talking to your neighbours and being not too hot, not too cold and not bothered by mosquitos? That was my evening tonight and I wish I could have bottled it up to save for a miserable day in February.
Looking forward to a similar night tomorrow at the East Lynn Farmers’ Market. The market runs until the end of October, but the bounty is already beginning to arrive.
This week at the Kid’s Korner :
At 3:30 p.m., an extra special craft; local potter and teacher, Karen Franzen, will be helping paint decorative tiles. Afterward, she will take them back to her deluxe studio and fire them in the kiln so they can be picked up at the market Aug. 25th. Face painting as always at 4:30 p.m.
Next week is one of our favourite events, Peach Fest!
(There will not be crafts on August 25th. Craft again September 8th.)
