Grocery Life November 2, 2016
By Tom Butler
Good afternoon from Butler & Bailey Market. I hope everyone is having a good week! The last time I wrote, the Vols were undefeated and the weather was hot and dry. Well, it is still hot and dry. The Vols have seemed to take a turn for the worse. That will probably hurt our business a little bit. Happy people seem to spend more money than disappointed people.
The holidays are just around the corner so I wanted to give you a couple of dates to put on your calendar. On November 19th from 11a.m. to 2 p.m., we will be having our annual Holiday Open House at the store.
We will be preparing some of our holiday favorites for you to sample. We will also have several local and national food companies sampling their favorite holiday items. This is a free event and is a great opportunity to get some great ideas for your holiday parties and meals. I hope you will be able to join us!
The other date you need to write down is December 3rd at 6:00 pm. This is when the third annual Rocky Hill Christmas Parade will happen. This event gets bigger and better every year so I hope you will be able to come and see what a special event this is for our community.
It is hard to think about, much less plan for the holidays when it still feels like summer outside, but I am sure all that will be changing soon. One good thing about the arrival of the holidays, at least for me, will be this presidential election will be over with.
Whenever I talk about politics I get a lot of emails, most of them from people that seem to not appreciate my sense of humor so I am not going to comment on the candidates. I will tell you that neither one of them was my choice. So what do you do when you should vote but don’t like the candidates? I went and voted twice, that way I could vote against both of them.
Who says the election is rigged?
Have a great weekend!
Thanks for letting us be a part of your community,
