They did it again, painted the downtown from Montecito and Baldwin Avenues to Lima! I do hope that you were able to participate in this happy event and enjoyed the fantastic creativity of our local children. It is such fun just being in the midst of things during the painting and hearing parents reminiscing about their own times painting windows. I am so proud of our continued involvement with this special Civic Club project. 

Our October general meeting was such a delightful and delicious event opening with the first Membership Social of the year. As I called the meeting to order following the social I looked out to see all of the tables filled with smiling faces. Thank you, Mary and Jane, for creating such a special time. And thank you to the members who asked for more opportunities to socialize—messages received! 

It is difficult to believe that it is already November, a time of year when we celebrate many and varied traditions, a time of year when we gather friends and memories and consider ways to help others. Look for information soon from Linda Heller, our Community Outreach Chair, with her suggestion for this year's project. 

Happy Thanksgiving!

             Food For Thought – Inspirational October, baptize me with leaves. Swaddle me in corduroy and nourish me with split pea soup. October, tuck tiny candy bars in my pocket and carve my smile into a thousand pumpkins. O’autumn, O’teakettle, O’grace. Rainbow Rowell
