June 28th-30th Weekend

You might want to take it easy this weekend to rest up  for all the excitement that's brewing in our little town.
Whatever you do stay cool and enjoy!
This Weekend in Blythewood
June 28th, 29th and 30th

Chill Out!

Bring the kids 'cause this Monday at the Northeast Farmers Market at Doko Meadows in Blythewood it's CHILL OUT POPS DAY!   Yes, indeed... the first 25 kids that show up at the market will get a FREE Chill Out Pops popsicle!  These aren't your everyday run of the mill popsicles, either.  These are handmade with fresh fruit and there are some deeeelicious flavors to choose from.   Mom's everywhere approve! We'll be doing a Chill Out day at the Lake Carolina site soon so be sure to watch for the date coming your way.

Remember the NEFM is at two great locations this year...Doko Meadows on Monday and Lake Carolina on Thursday...both run from
3pm -7pm. 
Look who's coming to the market next week!  We hope to see you there, too!

Who Knew?

Fireworks were invented when a Chinese cook accidently spilled saltpeter into a cooking fire.  The mixture made a pretty flame but he found it exploded if it was enclosed in a bamboo tube!
