August Calendar page

For those of you who have been printing out the monthly calendar page from Miss Mary, August page is ready now. If you haven't in the past go to the link below and check it out.
July has been a busy month at MY FRIENDS AND I, and we are looking forward to August and the fall season. It's a tradition that we put Fall and Halloween out just before the Antique Faire on August 31. Some of you have called asking if we are doing it again this year. YES we are.

Childrens Hospital Fund Raiser

Sign on counter at MY FRIENDS AND I

MY FRIENDS AND I are selling raffle tickets to benefit Children's Hospital of Oakland. The drawing will be on Sept. 1st. You can view the prizes in the window of Tyme For Tea here in Niles. There are some really great prizes and they are numbered so you can choose which items you'd like to win. The tickets are only $1.00 each and it's a great cause. Tyme for Tea is also having a special tea and part of the proceeds from that will go to Children's Hospital. The date for that is Aug. 10th. for info on the tea call Tyme for Tea at 790-0944.
