News From the Brownsville Bailiwick & Beyond - March 18, 2020

Now we are “set” for spring: daffodils have bloomed, we have had some rain, the time has sprung forward. Not time to put in a garden yet, but maybe start some seeds to get ready. Our forsythia bloomed gloriously this week. Iris probably next. Such fun to watch redbud, then dogwood fill our woods. Keep those tomatoes under cover, though.

 

            There are several Peddler’s Fairs planned for the up coming months. Below is a list of the dates, times, locations and set up fees, if any, for each event. There will be reminders and updates as each individual event draws near. #1. April 11th, 9 am – 4 pm, Brownsville Mercantile & Books and More parking lots, Brownsville, no set up fee. #2. May 23, 9 am – 4 pm, Brownsville Mercantile & Books and More parking lots, Brownsville, no set up fee. #3.

        Look Back in Time – in 1900 the Challenge post office building was moved with horses, cables and willing hands to a new, much more convenient location west of the hotel (that would have been a sight to see).

 

            Hope to see you in Brownsville soon.    Christine and Yvonne
