News From the Brownsville Bailiwick & Beyond - - November 27, 2019

A special Thank You note came from the group that organized Farmer's Market this past summer. They appreciated the effort made by the several volunteers that organized activities for kids. It is so nice to be thanked. We hope Farmer's Market goes as well next year. Consider getting involved in this community effort.


            Books & More and the Brownsville Mercantile are planning a special tamale lunch and yard sale for Nov. 30. You will be able to get a full tamale lunch or purchase individual tamales to go. It would be great if we had other people involved. How about a plant swap,  bake sale, crafters or other vendors. Come join in.


            The FVFDA Thrift Store, Books & More and Brownsville Mercantile will be closed Thanksgiving day. We hope the Thrift Store did well on their Christmas Bazaar. All of it helps support the Foothill Volunteer Fire Department.


            Don’t forget to pack up the clan and head to Hometown Christmas in Forbestown on Saturday, November 30th. Crafters, food vendors, people dressed in period clothing, Father Christmas, carolers and so much more will be happening in the museum / replica gold mining town, located on New York Flat Rd., from 10 am to 6 pm. A family fun day to start the Christmas Cheer.


            Look Back in Time – In 1927 a radio set was installed in the Forbestown residence of Mr. and Mrs. Cooney (like our tower coming into range for cell phone reception).


            We wish you all a very Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving!


            Hope you come to Brownsville soon.    Christine and Yvonne
