Just a note to express my appreciation and admiration for all our hearty customers who braved the rains last Saturday and attended our Raspberry Festival and 5th Birthday Party.
As we approached the day and realized what sort of weather we were in for (the fringes of Hurricane Ike), we were afraid no one would come.
We've been so lucky in the past with other outdoor events -- we just figured we were finally due for some nasty weather during one. And of course it had to be our biggest event of the year.
What we didn't count on was the steadfastness of our loyal customers. What fabulous folks you are!
It wasn't as busy as it would have been had the weather been beautiful, but it was so much busier than we ever expected. What wonderful folks to spend a rainy day with us on our "birthday!"
Thank you, every last soggy one of you.
