What a beautiful weekend. It rained and rained a little more. I do not think we got much more than a couple of inches, but the sight was a sight you pray for. Many of us sat on our porches and just watched and listened to the rain.

Last Friday, Elizabeth Sooter and her husband, Bubba and his mom, Mama Joy, and a gang of Elizabeth’s girls, Jane Orina, Helen Maxwell, Mary Reyes, and grandson of Mary, Joshua Vasquez baked cupcakes for the Pig Roast. From what we heard they did a great job and had a blast supporting the Pig Roast. Seeing this assembly was awesome and made you wonder if they had as much fun as Lucy did on I Love Lucy. I just bet they had even more fun.

I hope the EMS Garage Sale went well. This is always for a great cause. Good job to all who volunteered and made it a success.

The Capitol Area Food Bank will be @ the Super S Parking Lot on October 18th, 2011 from 11 am to 1 pm. This gives many people a little extra help with food.

Do not forget National Boss Day is on October 16 each year. When the holiday falls on a weekend, it is generally celebrated on the working day closest to October 16.

National Boss Day offers employees an opportunity to recognize those in supervisory positions. Popular ways to say "thanks" include cards and if nothing else just a big Thank You.

National Boss Day was started in 1958 when Patricia Bays Haroski, then an employee at State Farm Insurance Company in Deerfield, Ill., registered the holiday with the Chamber of Commerce of the United States. She designated October 16 as the special day because it was her father’s birthday. Ms. Haroski’s purpose was to designate a day to show appreciation for her boss and other bosses. She also hoped to improve the relationship between employees and supervisors. She believed young employees often do not realize the challenges bosses face in running a business.

This year Bosses’ Day is on October 17th, 2011.
