August...the time of year when everything starts coming out in Pumpkin Spice flavor (they even have Pumpkin Spice Spam this year...someone tell me how that turned out please!), the leaves start to change color and the temperatures begin to cool. That is, unless you are in the South. Specifically, Alabama in August. We had our highest temperatures of the year this week, with highs in the 100s and the heat index even higher! Speaking of the heat index, why don't we just call it as it is...HOT!!! I myself am an AC type of guy. This week, I was thankful that our monthly meeting was held in the Tea Room at the Downtown Civic Center where the temperature inside was a cool 70 degrees.
This month's meeting was our Friends and Family Night! This is a time when current members invite their friends, family and prospective members to join us for food, fellowship, and BINGO!!!! It was great night had by all and we had some awesome prizes for our game night. If you missed out this year, it is not to early to mark your calendar for next year! We would love to have you, and if you are interested in becoming a member, please be sure to send us a message. We are always looking for new members to help in our goals!
Are you ready for Workshop?
Vendors, Vendors, and Vendors!
Guess what is just over two months away!?!?! If you are not thinking Home, Garden and Design Show and Santa's Workshop, please start thinking about it two months ago! Space is filling up, but we still could use some more vendors. Here is a list of possible vendors, so if you know someone in any of these areas that might be interested, please have them contact either Angela Walker or Scott Browning. They can also contact us here on our website.
We need vendors from the following areas:
So send them our way and let's have another wonderful show! Remember, show dates are 01 & 02 November 2019. Set up date will be 31 October. This event is again held at the The Venue at Coosa Landing.
I am Scott Browning and I am the newest member of Altrusa International of Gadsden, however, I have been a volunteer of theirs for a while now. I became a member because I wanted to do something to give back to my community. I look forward to what I can contribute to the club my many talents and time.
