Hey everybody!
Someone told me last week, the 14th annual Turkey A Thon will be here before you know it. Then I thought, what if it’s not just me. What if it is here before anybody knows it!!!!! How could people plan? How could they save money? How could they be prepared? OMG. Then I thought, ( because I really do think a lot), maybe I should send everyone a flyer that they could read, study and post at work or home on your refrigerator with some big, ugly magnets. That way, if everyone knows about it, it would be impossible for the Turkey A Thon to be here before you know it. This makes sense, right? Good. So, attached you will find the Turkey A Thon poster. If you don’t have time to read it, just be aware the date is October 12th, Turkeys are $12.00 each, and every penny is spent at local grocery stores, then given to local food pantries to be distributed to local Washington County families. But, please read the poster too. Healthy Acadia did such a great job on it and the fall colors look great. You may even want to frame it, like I did.
