I always thought the word “party” denoted a great time, a fun time, a swinging time, a time to laugh, joke, talk, exchange ideas, have a good time, and, in general, leave the party feeling good about yourself, others, and what had just transpired.
I suppose you could say that the Friends of the Kelley Farm Annual Spring Work Party, its Spring Fling, met all of those criteria and a bit more. Certainly all of the above actually happened and some more as well. Those hands that showed up were most welcome and they were welcome to work, too…and work they did.
Raking, planting, cleaning, storing, stowing, tending, window washing and wood splitting, all under bright blue skies that covered 35 degrees across the ground. Cool, yes, but fortunately the wind short breaks from time-to-time and it wasn’t too bad. No snow and no snow blanket. Thank goodness.
