I’m really over the weather

Then again, I could be wrong.

Take a few months of your life and plan an event, a big event, with lots of moving parts and people. A full committee of volunteers all working to a common goal, raise money for a cause, put on a great event for everyone in the community and don’t miss a single detail.

Grueling is the best word I have to describe what it takes to put on an event. The bigger the event, the more time, resources and energy. Weekly meetings, budgets, purchasing, all of it, just grueling.

Then throw in the one factor you have absolutely no control over, the weather. In this case a 100% chance of rain, this Saturday, May 18, the very time and day of the Scott Burgess Memorial Freedom Festival.
