Individual Patio Sales on Nov. 16th

by Connie Riter

Now is the perfect time to start cleaning out items you don't use anymore. Once a year we can have a patio sale on our individual patios, price each item, and keep all the profits for our own use. We start selling to park residents on Nov. 15th and invite everyone else in on Saturday, Nov. 16th. Sign up sheets are in the clubhouse for individual sales (so we can make a map to hand out to those who come.) We also have sign up sheets for working at the bake sale or baking something to sell. Crafters from the park are invited to rent a table and to sell items in the Clubhouse. Tables are $5 per table and money should be given to me before the 8th so I can put appropriate items in the local newspaper. Carol will be selling books in the Clubhouse again and Dave and his crew will be selling lunch - this time he will also be having FRENCH FRIES (thanks to Bob Chapin.) We keep getting better and better!! This is a once a year event so make use of this time to organize items to sell. I will also have Coyote Books for sale at Lot 81 since I am having a sale this year. If you have any questions, please call me. We will also have flags to put on your property to identify that you are having a sale. Let's make this sale a profitable time for all of us!!

Here it is, October 2011, the 10th month of the year and only 3 months away from 2012. Wow, where does the time go? It doesn?t seem that long ago, when the year 2000 was coming and everyone thought the end of the world might happen with all the computers that were going to shut down. Oh well, here we are, almost 12 years later and computers are still working just fine (well, most of the time anyway).When we think of October, we usually remember the major events Oktoberfest, Columbus Day, Yom Kippur, Thanksgiving Day in Canada, and of course the big one, Halloween.
Some of the other special events you may or may not know about:A few month long events:
National Apple Month,
National Clock Month,
National Dessert Month,
National Pizza Month (my favorite)
National Popcorn Popping Month (another favorite)

October 2,1950 First Peanuts Cartoon Strip published
October 4th National Golf Day (wow, another favorite)
October 7,
1957American Bandstand premiered
October 15th National Grouch Day
National Poetry Day (who put these together?)
October 19, 1814Star Spangled Banner first sung (I know some of you remember this)
October 20, 1931Mickey Mantle born -Spavinaw, Oklahoma
October 22nd National Nut Day (need I say more)
October 26, 1863 International Red Cross Organized -Geneva, Switzerland
October 27, 1858 Theodore Roosevelt born –New York City
October 29, 1966 National Organization of Women Founded
October 30, 1735John Adams born –Braintree, Massachusetts
One of the other major events in October is the Baseball World Series
and who could forget Reggie Jackson?s three home runs (on the very first pitch of 3 different innings with 3 different pitchers) in Game 6 on October 18, 1977. The Yankees went on to beat the Los Angeles Dodg-ers 4 games to 2. That?s why he was nicknamed “Mr. October”.

There?s a lot of other stuff going on in October but I hope you enjoyed some of this trivia.
