7 am and these gals from Chicago pulled up to the gate on one of the prettiest early summer mornings I’ve ever seen! Oh my but there is power in prayer. I kept waking up during the night to listen for possible raindrops and when I got up at 5 there wasn’t even any wind much less rain. It made me so thankful.
People started lining up in earnest about 8:30. Here is the line of customers from a couple of different angles.
And here are the greeters – Vivian, Becky and Chase. Vivian pointed the way to the parking and Becky and Chase picked customers up in 2 golf carts until one of the golf carts died in transit. Later on they returned customers with their purchases back to their cars.
Let the shopping begin!
3 hours later—
We are all exhausted tonight as you might imagine. Thanks for all your personal messages of best wishes for a successful day – every one was read and appreciated. It was simply a wonderful day! More pictures tomorrow. Time for bed.
