For the past twenty years or so I've been working in the office on fair day, doing a two hour shift counting money. There's a system in place that has been many years in the making, and I simply do as I'm told. I count money, mark slips of paper, make change, etc. I follow instructions and do my annual duty to assist the organization of which I am not a member. And on fair day I'm so grateful for that! Because all the members are working a very long day, in the heat and humidity, and I get to come in, work my two hours, and leave. And on my way in and out I get to peruse the booths, check out the food, and maybe even buy a raffle ticket. And I won't go home exhausted.
Of course that's not why I'm not a member of the LVIS. That has more to do with limited time than anything else. I am already busy with church, the Historical Society, the Healthcare Foundation, and the Ambulance Association. I simply don't have any more time to give to anyone on a long term basis. But on fair day, I'm all about the LVIS and am more than happy to do my part.
Happy fair day ladies! Here's to a beautiful, sunny, prosperous one!
