Happy Monday, Everyone!
It’s going to be a short week this week because, can you believe it? It’s Thanksgiving week! Where did the time go? It feels like we were just dancing the night away at our Summer Concerts and now we’re getting the Christmas Tree out of storage. While the weather sure FEELS like Thanksgiving time, my brain just isn’t there yet. Thanksgiving in my house is an extra special time as my son, Jacob, was born on Thanksgiving Day 8 years ago. But that also means Jacob is going to be 8 this weekend, and I’m SUPER not ready for that one. But time keeps going whether we want it to or not, so I might as well go along for the ride.
And speaking of going along with the ride (you see what I did there?), we have some exciting news! Our Enchant Christmas Maze and Market Bus Trip had some last-minute cancellations, which means we have room for more! If you want to come along, please let us know ASAP. We are going to be in close contact with the Uptown Social folks today to make sure we fill the bus. As a reminder, you can reply to this email, call the office, or stop in if you want more info or to sign up.
Also, I wanted to let you all know that Pic A Deli is having their usual Thanksgiving Celebration lunch this coming Wednesday (the 22nd). Lunch will be Turkey and gravy, stuffing, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, and a dinner roll. And as if that wasn’t enough, Dave will top it off with a slice of pumpkin pie. If you want to join for lunch, give Pic A Deli a call today or tomorrow to reserve your meal.
Like I said, it’s a short week this week, but there’s still a lot of fun events coming up…
