In the mail on Saturday we received two awesome invitations! Both are for special events that should not be missed, so I added them to the "Join Us" section of the Blog. I know there are other things going on that weekend, including Denison Work but I cannot help but spread the word and encourage LONGR to attend! And of course I'll share the why....
1st- A Sympohny of Flavor on Saturday, June 17, 2017 Learn more about this worthy, important cause here: http://www.ngsymphony.org pay special note to the youth orchestra opportunities! I am always sad when we cannot attend this event- the menu is so impressive: creative, delicious, innovative and well executed. I know some of the work that goes into this event and I'm grateful to those involved. I'm making plans for a great night out with Joe and friends.
2nd- Granville Garden Day Preview Reception- woo hoo! On Saturday, June 17th the Town and Country Garden Tour will take place. Make plans now to attend, I loved my ramble into the back yards last year. A fun bonus is the "It's All Greek to Me" Granville Garden Day Preview Reception on Friday, June 16th. Details about what and why can be found here: robbinshunter.org "programs and events". The Jill Griesse Historic Garden at the Robbins Hunter Museum is very special and deserves our philanthropic dollars.
My father always said- if you want to keep receiving an invitation to a fundraiser- give them something. If you enjoy your college magazine or organizations mail- give them something- stay on the list! This was an early lesson in philanthropy that has stayed with me. I won't go deep with this lesson today- but simply say- I'm glad and proud to be on these organizations' lists and grateful for all they do.
Life on Newark-Granville Road the blog started as a replacement for emails I would send sharing FYIs about events and happenings around the community. Tonight's blog is a return to my purpose, thanks for reading.
