The weatherman keeps telling us that Fall is coming, temperatures will be dropping but so far we are waiting. Talking to a friend yesterday in St. Louis, winter has come and Fall didn’t arrive. Weather is crazy now. How about you?
Talking of weather, our hearts go out to the people in Panama City as well as neighboring towns such as Mexico Beach. Seeing the pictures, it reminds me of Ivan and Katrina. Devastation of a hurricane or a tornado makes you realize how fragile life is. WE take for granite our surroundings. Each day we need to be thankful.
On the other side, what is big in Fairhope. Each Thursday in October from 3-6 PM, The Fairhope Outdoor Farmer’s Market is located behind the Fairhope Public Library. On October 22, the City Council Meeting will be in the city council chambers at 6 pm. October 25th, at 5:30, Fairhope Witches Ride–go to www.facbook.com/FairhopeWitchesRide. This is a great fund raiser but really adds whimsical Halloween theme to downtown Fairhope. Then on October 27, trick or treat in Downtown for kids of all ages. Stores that display pumpkins in their windows are participating.
Our market is extremely healthy with only 368 active listings in Fairhope. 89 homes are under contract and 673 homes have closed since January. Yes, we are fortunate.
Please sit back and be thankful but again Hurricane victims need your help. In our area, we have donation drop offs for victims. Look them up and take time to help the unfortunate.
