Danica is coming home with more than she contributed, which is the general idea in these fundraisers, I think. She baked a delicious loaf of pumpkin bread with chocolate and nuts, then bought a wide array of goodies made by Beach Hill neighbours. Of course I have sampled and I’m honestly shocked at how good everything is.
A bit of drizzle did nothing to dampen the turnout. I won’t be surprised to hear that more was raised than last year. The money goes to pay for improvements along our little commercial strip… flowers around the trees, benches on the sidewalks, paint spruce-ups and supplies for volunteers who build things like the new bulletin board. People around here care and it shows.
