October is jam packed with activity

Eyesore of the week: There appears to be an abandoned trailer on a grown over lot at the corner of Boad and 5th Street that needs a clean up. I’m proud of all the ones who have taken the initiative and cleaned up their properties. The owners of the lot across the street from me came from Savannah and cut the grass, but all the junk is still in plain view. I think the next time I see them over there, I’m going to call the zoning office and ask that they come and confront these people in person.

BBQ and more: The Midway Methodist Church is having it’s annual Fall Bar-B-Que and yard sale tomorrow from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The sale begins at 8 and the dinner at 11. Meals are $6 a plate, butts are $20 and for an extra $5 they will cut up the butt for you. This is lots of fun for everyone and a great way to meet and greet your neighbors.

Community day: The Lake George Fire Department is having a community get-together at the Fire Station from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. tomorrow. It will be an open house similar to the last one where there will be plenty for the kids to do and lots of food and drinks. Buzzly the Fire Safety Bee will be there and a Lifestar helicopter will land for display. The Red Cross will be there and a rollover trailer from the Jesup Police Department will be demonstrated. Explorer scouts will have a display for their group. The American Legion will be selling spaghetti dinners and drinks. So bring the whole family. I had already committed myself to helping Keep Liberty County Beautiful with a litter clean up at Riceboro Creek, so I’m sorry I will miss it. The men and women of the Fire Department have done an outstanding job.

Seafood Festival: The annual Great Ogeechee Seafood Festival at Richmond Hill begins today and lasts through Sunday at Gregory Park. Today from 5 to 11 p.m., tomorrow from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. there will be mouth-watering seafood, arts and crafts, a classic auto show and fun rides for the kids. There will be live music by the Swingin’ Medallions and Survivor.

Gratitude: I would just like to thank the many people who e-mail and call me to compliment my column. I had one lady who said she had learned a lot about plants and has become a plant lover because of my column. I had three neighbors come tour my yard this week because of all the colors they could see from the road. My biggest beauty is my cassia tree, which is just beginning to burst out in brilliant yellow.
