Thank you for celebrating Buy Local Week and high summer with us this morning!
What a gorgeous morning -- we were treated to perfect weather (not too hot, not too humid), great music by The 7erUppers, a wonderful CPRC storytime, fantastic food, surprise visits by Simple Pleasures Ice Cream and children's author Edward Faine, great community activities, loads of friends, and all sorts of treasures. Mornings like this make all the hard work of the Market absolutely worthwhile for us -- we hope you enjoyed it, too.
We extend a special thank you to Liz O'Leary, our departing Operations Manager. In the past year and a half, Liz has helped to guide the Market through processes that will enable us to become a bigger, stronger organization with a greater community outreach, and her efforts had a great effect on all of us. We will miss her gentle southern ways and sunny disposition at the Market, but we're sure she'll come away from the island for an occasional visit.
Photos from today's Market -- along with shots ranging all the way back to our early Markets in 2008 -- will be posted in our flickr group very soon. We have exciting things ahead for you in August, including more new vendors, a special Community Forklift event, and all the wondrous experiences you have come to expect at Cheverly Community Market. We're very proud to be part of this community. Thank you for sharing it with us.
