Moving Sale! This Sunday, August 24 from 1-3 p.m.

Moving Sale…Bon Voyage!

So one of the nicer things about having a family-run website is that we get to post things like this.

I’ve written for the site for about four years now and have posted over 600 blog posts and have never thought of promoting something personal.  But I just remembered–we can do that.

We’d like to ask you all to support our wonderful niece and great niece  in their long awaited dream which is now a reality–moving to California.  Kaitlin is graduating from the radiology program at Reid this week and in just a couple of weeks will be heading for California.

4H Fair 2

Ella on left looking at bunny cages at the 4H Fair with cousin Mary Grace

We are so proud of all her hard work and dedication towards her education and her plans to move.  She must have been born a “California girl” because after her first visit there –it was in her blood.  And then meeting her fiancé was a bonus.   We do have a lot to offer here in Wayne County, but for those like Kaitlin who long for the ocean and sun–it’s a great fit.

This Sunday is a big Moving Sale to help them along their way and to lighten their load (they are packing all they need in a car).  So if you want some great deals on furniture, clothes, books, lamps, just about anything–you won’t want to miss this sale!

And you’ll be helping with a great adventure that has been a long time in coming for Kaitlin and Ella (and Christopher).  The sale is at 3585 Pleasant View Rd, this Sunday from 1-3 p.m.(also the address of Yellow Kitty Hair Salon–another family plug).  We hope to see you there from 1-3 p.m. and make sure you congratulate our girl on a job well done!

If you haven’t made it to the Shakespeare productions of Much Ado About Nothing or Romeo and Juliet, you still have several chances.

According to the Shakespeare Festival site:

Indiana’s Richmond Shakespeare Festival is producing Much Ado About Nothing and The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet in Richmond’s historic Starr-Gennett piano factory (with generous support from the Richmond Parks and Recreation Department),  in repertory, from June 6 through 15, 2014.

Professionally directed, designed, and managed, these performances are intended to be fresh, accessible, and relevant.

The Starr-Gennett building becomes a 250-seat theatre and the surrounding park is converted into a festival area with performers, art displays, vendors and other events and activities.

Are you ready for a Hoosier Shakespearience? Please join us. (Ticket & dates information can be found on the Shakespeare Festival site).

If you are visiting from out of town, you can get directions, tickets and other important information by visiting the information page at Richmond Shakespeare Festival site., for those visiting our area.
