Nice weekend! For some, this seems to have been the weekend to take boats out of the water - I've seen an unusual number of boats on trailers heading north on W. Shore Rd. and empty boat trailers heading south on W. Shore Rd. today. It's usually been Labor Day weekend when we see this kind of activity, but probably a lot more boats will be hauled out then, too, and put away for the winter. Some schools are getting started next week, so that means families are heading home.
Now is the season of the big fairs. Barton Fair just closed today, Caledonia County Fair is coming right up - this week, then there's Lancaster Fair starting on Sept. 1. All good stuff.
Here's another event that will have good stuff in it - a yard sale put on for the benefit of the West Danville church. I like the way they are doing this one - no tag sale. That's from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, and then there's the very social end-of-the-season cocktail party at the Joe's Pond pavilion starting at 4:00 P.M. until 7:30 P.M.

There will be lots of church suppers from now on, too. One we always try not to miss is the North Danville Baptist Church chicken pie supper - that will be coming up in September - not sure of the date, but will post it as soon as I know. We usually get take-out, and it is a really good feed. We also especially like the turkey supper in Cabot during Fall Foliage week. Not a good time to be watching your waistline! Eat now, diet later.
Here are some dates you should put on your calendar: Fall Foliage Festival week starts on September 26 through Oct. 2. This is the week when area towns host all sorts of activities and there will be some great food and entertainment starting in Walden on Monday then Cabot, Plainfield, Peacham, Barnet, Groton and finally Marshfield on Sunday, October 2nd. Also on October 2nd is "Autumn on the Green" in Danville.
