The Good News and the People Making it Happen
September in Arkansas is Fall one day (okay … one morning) and then NOT. If I must pick a favorite season it is Fall. I am pumpkin spice everything, but I love sea salt, sand and seafood too. I like each season in its time.
Life has its seasons, for sure. The loss of a dear person certainly makes you reflect and take note. Especially when those of us who knew Amber Gill well know she would be telling us “straight-up” to get our $!;# together and “DO something” about whatever it is we are thinking about doing or improving. I will miss her “honesty” (she would make me say her bluntness), her impactful strong presence and that smile! RIP Amber.
September Premiere will bring a smile to the faces of our readers with lots of Fair and Festival information to help them get out and enjoy. County fairs are such an iconic symbol of America and we should all support the efforts of our communities to keep the traditions going by taking kids to see the animal shows, exhibits of agricultural products, handcrafted items and food preservation they might only read about in books otherwise.
If fairs are just not your thing, at least get out to one of the many festivals and… make memories – because you never know when you will not be around to make them anymore.
