After a month-long blogging break, I'm back at my computer. A lot took place during the month of August, and I'll be sharing past activities with current ones.
Today, 55 people from our church participated in the Peach Festival Parade in Romeo, MI. It's an annual event that began back in 1913. Our 24 acres of church property is situated among lots of apple and peach orchards. While we haven't built our new facility yet [we are presently meeting in a school], our participation in the parade let the community know we exist, as well as extending a welcome for them to come worship with us.
Below was our wagon. We were #48 in the parade [out of over 80 participants]. We're patiently waiting for the parade to start. Mother Nature cooperated and gave us a beautiful day of sunshine and a temperature in the high 70's.

The parade was very well attended, and it was a fun day. Michigan peaches are delicious this year, and we distributed peaches and apples to the parade-goers, as well as a little baggie of candy and a church card.
The street light posts were adorned with Peach Festival banners.
How did you celebrate Labor Day?
Now I'm off to my kitchen to work on preparations for a surprise 86th birthday tea party for my aunt this Wednesday. When my cousin asked if I'd do a intimate tea party for 8-10 ladies, I happily agreed. The 'intimate' tea party grew to 19, so I'll be busy the next couple of days, but I'll share photos afterwards.
