need to enter Georgia for a while before turning into their road back into Florida.
This Saturday afternoon celebration was a change of pace from my other book tour events. The Sunrise Jubilee Farm, a new organically run operation, held a community-wide pot-luck dinner party.
|Jennifer Asbury and me.|
Jennifer and I met on Facebook where she was talking about the farm that she and her husband Joe have started. I suggested that we could create an event as an open-house, introduction to the community event where I could talk about organic gardening and sell my books.
The rest of the event, she, her family, her church, and her neighbors put together. And what a great party it was. Everyone seemed to have a good time. Plus the weather was beautiful.

|The baby bunnies were popular attractions.|
|What a great cake from a neighbor!|
Everyone brought a covered dish to share. There was a wide choice of food from fried chicken and watermelon to cole slaw and various fruit salads plus this fabulous cake.
|Three Christian bands provided music throughout the afternoon.|
|At the end of the day, as a surprise for Gramma, Jennifer had arranged |
for one of her coworkers to perform a belly dance!
