A CHANGE OF PLANS

IM008030

I am a Midwest, central Illinois gal.  For as long as I can remember, the Morton Pumpkin Festival has taken place the second week of September, just shortly after the kids go back to school.  It was something we looked forward to throughout the year.  But this year, the date was changed to the THIRD week of September because of a late Labor Day.

This is momentous to me because I had already sent out promotional material that our Farm Grove September Sale would take place Sat., Sept. 19–WRONG.  That is the same day as the all-American pumpkin parade in Morton.  No self-respecting area gal would set a sale on that day of all days!!!

So without further ado, I hereby change the date of the sale to September 26.

THE FARM GROVE BARN

18886 SPRINGFIELD ROAD
