October 2015 Newsletter


What a fun time I had at this past Pumpkin Patch Party!  This would be my 6th year attending the pumpkin patch with CECPTA….come to think of it, it’s the only time I go to a pumpkin patch. Shh, don’t tell my older boys. With fall comes cooler weather (for everywhere else but Texas), all things pumpkin (from decorations, food, and drinks) and the reminder that it’s the start of the holidays (Halloween will soon be here, then Thanksgiving and Christmas just around the corner).
But October is also a reminder that our Annual Auction is coming soon (save the date November 13th). Our fabulous auction committee (can I get a whop whop for Leslie Wood and Amy Adams) will yet again organize another auction you don’t want to miss. And I hope to see you at tomorrow’s meeting.Your parenthesis happy president (if you haven’t noticed by now),
