We are having great difficulty realizing that Labor Day has come and gone. Our calendar confirms that. But we seem to find ourselves thinking the calendar cannot possibly be right and we are really only just past the Fourth of July. Yet we cannot reconcile that thinking with the fact that the football season is once again in full swing.
Unfortunately, it is time that we make the switch from our summer projects, which this year has been working on a number of needlepoint projects, to our winter projects. Winter projects include things like finishing the quilt we started earlier this year so we can give it to the Widge for her fourth birthday; scanning the family photos so they can be put on CDs for other family members; blocking a number of needlepoint projects that our grandmother did years ago so we can dole them out to other family members; and continuing work on our ongoing book project. It looks to be a busy winter ahead.
Of course, even with our many projects, we will still be keeping track of various and sundry events in the community. For example, there is a concert tonight, Sept. 5, at 7 p.m. at Woodside Hall which will feature the four part harmony group, Ah Coopella. The concert is free, but seating is limited so reservations should be made by calling Deborah Ziegler at 373-7817.
We also note that the next meeting of the Literary Discussion Group will be held at 2:30 p.m.,Thursday, Sept. 26, at the Village of Cooperstown Library. The book for discussion will be “Life of Pi” by Yann Martel. The discussion will be lead by Marie Rudloff. The meeting, as usual, is open to the public.
The group would also like to thank Woodside Hall for graciously hosting the Literary Discussion Group meetings for July and August. Not only was it very pleasant to meet at Woodside Hall, it was also very nice not to have to worry about parking.
