The fair has come and gone, the school year is well underway, and I’ve had my first pumpkin spice latte! It’s the best of fall in Lake County. I have to admit, it’s a bitter-sweet time of year saying goodbye to summer, and all of its must-do’s—especially since we’re making up for lost time from last summer. But it’s also nice to see empty spaces in my calendar where we can fit in the spontaneous things that we want to experience again! Whether it’s live music, wine tasting, or another BBQ just because, September has it all going on in Lake County. Speaking of live music, we’re excited to tell you about the last concert of the season in Clearlake. This year they started holding concerts in newly remodeled Austin Park, and they’ve been great. Also, we’ve got a new Gathering podcast. Also this week, host Michelle Scully learns more about the Big Valley, Small Farms Tour coming up in a week. Whatever your plans are for the weekend, stay safe and have fun!
