Following this presentation at 10 pm there will be a Perseid Meteor Shower sky watch at Arrowhead Lake. The Perseids, which often are very bright meteors, are debris left behind by the comet Swift-Tuttle. Every year, the Earth passes near the path of the comet, and the debris left behind by Swift-Tuttle shows up as meteors in our sky. Bring your own blanket and chair and watch the show. The rain date is Saturday the 14th. Linda and Marc Fries will host.

Monday night, my honey and I attended the fundraiser auction for the Cedar Mountain Community Center Scholarship Fund. The silent auction had gobs of cool things. There was something for everyone including me. I bid on and won a manicure at a local salon. I thought it fitting to do my nails up right before our wedding next month.

An open auction preceded the announcement of winners of the silent auction. There were many worthy contributions to the open auction as well. David Brown donated several of his wood creations including a table with a sourwood top. His creations are always a hit.
