Friday Meanderings

So much stuff going on….

The yoga class is SUPER.  Love our teacher Tiffany West.  I have officially put her on my list of “things to be thankful for”. Every session we get more students and Tiffany is adding a Tuesday evening class starting at 5:30.

Terry and I did parking last Saturday at the Homosassa Civic Club.  We officially parked 44 truck-trailers and other vehicles at $10 a pop.  A couple people gave us $20s and told us to keep the change.  One woman paid with all the quarters, nickles, and dimes that she found in the truck because her husband was on the boat and had the cash.  All the proceeds go to our local youth groups. In the first three weeks the youth group at the Homosassa Baptist Church made $1,100! Last week and for the next few weeks the funds are going to the Old Homosassa Learning Center for our after-school program.  We need new doors, a full-sized refrigerator and a projector.

And I can’t help but wonder, Where did these people park before?  There are still cars, trucks, and trailers parking illegally–like in front of fire hydrants and on the road. The Sheriff has started giving out tickets instead of warnings.

The Homosassa Civic Club board of directors hired a coordinator for the learning center.  Ruth Toner-Hatfield who moved to River Haven last July.  She and her husband are both retired educators and have extensive experience with all ages of kids.I’m very excited about the upcoming Fall session which will stat September 5.  Tiffany, our yogi, has agreed to give the kids free yoga lessons on Tuesdays from 5-3:30.  Our sewing coach and I are going to help the kids sew costumes for Halloween or cosplay on Thursdays. Planning on having them show off their creations at the Homosassa Arts, Crafts, and Seafood Festival.

Another exciting new event–second Saturday market at the Homosassa Civic Club.  I’m sure we will find a better name than that eventually.  We are just in the planning stages but hope to have it up and running on September 9th and continue every month.  Gil Watson is leading the charge.  Terry is working with the county to make sure we do everything right.

Fun times!

Have a great weekend!
