I love the small town that I live in! I love the way others love and support the area as well. Our local community center, for which I work, hosted a Fall Festival today. It got off to a slow (8 a.m.) start, but the attendance picked up later in the morning and it turned out to be a very successful event!
One thing that impressed me today, as I worked the bake sale tables, was the sincere show of support that local residents displayed by simply attending the event. I’m sure there were many people in attendance who, (as I determined), probably had little interest in the activities and games geared for children, the sweet treats and food that few of us really NEED or the local vendors and their wares, of which we probably have seen many times before! No matter, people attended the event simply to show support for the community center and their work in our community. I love how ‘community fosters community’. There is a feel at the MACC that is contagious and that feeling spreads a positive vibe throughout the area! It feels good to be part of the staff of this wonderful organization, The Middlecreek Area Community Center, but more, it is a privilege to be part of a small community that cares and supports each other as was evidenced today!
