The Take Joy Society's third town to explore is familiar to three of us since we live on the outskirts of Frederick. But we made some new discoveries as we parked the car and took to the sidewalk. Our first stop was the public library. Debra took us to the Children's Department to see a fun mural in a room I'd not been in. . . .

Susan Branch's illustrations capture Autumn at its best. By November Autumn is well on its way to becoming winter in the northern climes. We start thinking about Thanksgiving, making our menu, preparing bedrooms for our guests. . . .

This month, on the 6th, the Take Joy Society attended this year's Waterford Fair in Waterford, VA . Click on music link to hear Donna Nomick, one of the vendors at the Fair, play "Si Bean Locha Lein" and come back here to read along with the music.
Only Cindy and I were able to make this get-together so we brought our husbands along and met at the Fair. Ken and I took the back roads whenever we could for the 35-minute drive, passing lovely farm scenes like these. . . .

The Take Joy Society begins its third year this month. We had a gorgeous day to begin our theme this year of exploring different nearby towns. Four of the six members got together to check out a new project recently completed in Hagerstown, MD called the Cultural Trail. We met at the Washington County Fine Arts Museum, which I featured last year in our January get-together, to view the art pieces by member Cindy in the exhibit "The Art of Life: Celebrating 85 Years of Art Education". . . .
