Morning Meanderings… The Gatsby Trials
Talk about hitting the ground running…
Over this past weekend we completed the Spring Friends of the Library book sale. Yesterday I jumped into full Gatsby mode – picking up the materials we need to make the fascinators, a planning meeting, trivia questions prepped, promoting, props for the photo station, and then last night a few of us met at the library to sew and put together the fascinators.
When I call this the Gatsby trials… I do not mean “a formal examination of evidence before a judge, and typically before a jury, in order to decide guilt in a case of criminal or civil proceedings”. What I mean is: test (something, especially a new product) to assess its suitability or performance. We are seeing if this event is a good fit for our community and worth our time and efforts as a non profit. Our goal is to reach out beyond our current influence and I think by the names I have seen on the guest list…. we are doing just that!
This week… is all detail work. Finalizing volunteers, talking with all of those involved, and making sure we are ready to roll….or I guess swing, would be the more appropriate word. We need to be ready to swing. 🙂
