Wrapping up another GREAT week!
BY: RACHEL WUMKES
The Feel Good Friday blog posts have been on hiatus throughout the summer. For some reason, I figured it was just a good time to bring a random one back for today.
Because what a summer it’s been, friends!!
Thursdays on Main wrapped it’s run last week and while we don’t have “official” numbers, it had to have been a record-breaking season. The food trucks sold out of supplies – and often. The streets were packed with people enjoying their evening. The live music was killer week after week. And there were SO many vendors interested in attending, we had to turn people away.
And while I’m sad to see another summer slip into the fall season, it’s also kind of exhilarating.
The Clear Lake Community School District started up again this week, as well as Clear Lake Classical. Kiddos donned their shiny new shoes and loaded up their backpacks with school supplies to kick off the year in style.
And then… all the stay-at-home-moms and work-from-home-parents rejoiced.
Last night, BOTH cross country teams took FIRST PLACE in their inaugural meet of the season. This evening, the football team travels to Iowa Falls in hopes of bringing home a win as well. The volleyball team will bump-set-spike their way into their season with their first match next week.
Fall sports are in full swing and I love it.
And honestly, as much as I love summer, fall comes in at a very close second. The change of leaves, the crisp mornings as the sun begins to gain power, and the death of all the bugs.
Sorry, that last one was a bit morbid. But I think we can all agree it’s time they die, right?
Another perk of fall is the annual Harvest Festival event. It is always a highlight for my girlfriends and me to get together for a fun day of wine tasting, shopping, eating, and just enjoying all the fall things around town!
If you haven’t yet purchased your souvenir bag, there are only a handful of days left to get it done!! All bag sales must be made by August 31st this year. Unfortunately, we are in the same boat as the entire country, struggling with supply chain issues and getting items delivered on time. This year, we are only able to order goodies for the bags that are purchased by the cut-off date.
SO – GET ON IT!!!
It’s simple… you click on this link https://www.eventbrite.com/e/clear-lake-harvest-festival-tickets-388177488317 then you click on the red box that says “tickets.” Put in the number of bags you’d like to purchase from the dropdown and click “checkout.” Add in your information and then click “place order.”
And while you’re at it – just go on and sign yourself up for the Champagne 5K that morning. A run/walk that includes sips of the bubbly?? I’m in!
VOILA!! Now you can have all the fun!
From the bottom of our hearts, we’d like to thank our many incredible residents and the countless guests of the Clear Lake community for another amazing summer. Soak up these last few chances to enjoy the warm weather at one of our beaches, or out on the water. Be sure to visit all your favorite seasonal places before they close up shop for the winter.
As for us? We’ll be here. Being a resource for our many members and planning all the fun for the upcoming months and into next summer.
Have a fantastic weekend!
