Today is a great day.
What makes today a great day for you?
Today is a great day.
It's sunny and beautiful, warm and breezy, and it's Friday (if you're reading this when it was published)! But, today is a great day for more reasons than that. With plenty of reasons to think about what's wrong with the world, lets focus on what's going right in our neck of the woods:
- Time-Out Americana Grill is hosting an LGBT+ Game Night tonight (7/20/18) and that is AMAZING! Why? Because a local restaurant is showing their support for the LGBTQIA+ community loud and proud. They are taking steps towards creating a safe place at their establishment and leading the way to a community where LGBTQIA+ citizens are not just seen, but celebrated!
- World Under Wonder is hosting a benefit for Rural Outright at Bob's Place in Windsor tonight. Inspired by Rural Outright's PRIDE celebration last month, World Under Wonder wanted to create a place where LGBTQIA+ performers and their allies could come together and celebrate their talents, community, and show their PRIDE.
- The Claremont MakerSpace had their grand opening this month. A new creative hub for makers and entrepreneurs, the MakerSpace has me thinking about all the projects I've ever wanted to bring to life. They're also hosting Rural Outright's next Open Mic Night on Tuesday, July 24. I'm so excited about the MakerSpace and I can't wait to see what Claremont, and the greater community, get making!
- Farmer's Markets are one of my favorite things about summer time, and a list of good things happening in our area wouldn't be complete without mention of farmer's markets. Whether you want fresh, local produce or you want to get some ice cream or you want to learn more about local nonprofits - farmer's markets are just the perfect combination of all things wholesome and summer. Next time you're out and about or looking for something to do on a weekend, stop by your local farmer's market - I'm making my way to Newport's today!
Sometimes it's nice to sit down, reflect, and think about why today is a good day. So, ask yourself, what makes today a good day for you?
