OK, hands up, who’s going to the Ilion Days Craft Fair?
Full disclosure: I have never fully taken advantage of Ilion Days, a celebration that lasts for over a week and includes village wide garage sales, the delightfully named Doo-Dah Parade, a Craft Fair, and more. I’ve gone to the garage sales in years past. This year’s were last weekend, when I was busy hydrating for the Boilermaker.
Further full disclosure: I don’t know that much about the “and more.” OK, I don’t know anything about “and more.” I don’t even know much about the Craft Fair, but I’m going to be there.
I may have mentioned that I am a member of Team Uncle Leo for Sitrin’s Stars and Strips Run/Walk to benefit veterans’ rehabilitation programs. On Saturday, July 18 beginning at 10 a.m. at Ilion’s Central Plaza, Team Leo will have a table at the craft fair. We plan to sell water, soda, chips, candy and baked goods. We are also offering several desirable items in a raffle (including an afghan in camouflage colors made by me).
As it turns out, I may not personally be there at the crack of 10, because I may have to work, but somebody will be there. I hope to be there at some point.
Right now, I’ve got to go finish my contribution to the baked goods portion of our table. I’m a little disappointed that I shall once again miss the Doo-Dah Parade.
