Last night I attended the latest event from the Rocket City Bloggers, “Connect!” This one was held at the Mars Grill of the Space & Rocket Center, and what a great place to have it.
I donated a gift basket for a door prize. It contained peach tea from Piper & Leaf, a tea infuser, a mug made by a local artist, coffee from the landmark KaffeeKlatch, hand soap from Harrison Brothers Hardware, and decadent hand cream from 1818 Farms.
I saw this as I headed to the event. Do you know who this is??? It’s SIGNAL!!!
Here I am with Bo Williams and C.A. Marks – good friends from the Rocket City Bloggers.
Prizes for the event.
