Christmas In July
Those bloggers that have been with me awhile will remember Christmas in July, a fundraiser for our little Library here in this tiny Colorado town. We have it every July. You buy a ticket for Thirty Dollars. It is a fun evening where there are....
a pot luck dinner, including a dessert
and oh yes, a Christmas tree
oops how could I forget Don of the keyboard and saxophone
The biggest part of the ticket revenue goes to buy a new book for the library. It is gift wrapped and put on this tree. Each guest is assigned a number. When your number is called you can open a book or steal one that has already been opened. Let's just say there is a lot for fun stealing going on. You don't get to keep the book, you simply get to read it first.. Everybody wins. We have a fun fun evening, and the library gets 50 new books.
How could one persons life be so different from winter to summer? Well stick around and see. I live in a cosmopolitan city half of the year and then head to a tiny town in the mountains the other half.....a place full of interesting people, beautiful scenery, wild animals......and great adventures!
