Thanksgiving is the most profound time of the year–both melancholy and joyful, with the end of summer and the bounty of harvest; it is time to reflect on what came before and what is yet to come. Or maybe I’m feeling melancholy because it’s my birthday.
The Farmers’ Market is having a harvest celebration this weekend. There will be face painting, castles, and an unusual fashion show.
To honour the season, our local food bank and the Weston Park Baptist Church will be raising money and starting a food drive. The drive will begin in earnest on December 6, but they would be very glad to accept a donation now.
