Happy fall! It has finally cooled off in Oklahoma and we are hoping for some rain. But the temperatures are wonderful. Sweater weather has arrived.
And with it come fall festivities. Yesterday I set up with my books at the library in Cherokee, Oklahoma for the Cherokee Stroll and Fall Festival. Many thanks go out to Jenny Rieger, of the Cherokee Library, and Shawn Aker of Cherokee Main Street Community Organization, for inviting me.
The library is in the middle of town and vendors were set up all down Main street. The fire department sponsored a pancake breakfast, and the local airport was giving free plane rides to kids. I guess they thought I was too old.
I met some wonderful people and would love to go back sometime. Cherokee is a small town in northwest Oklahoma about 17 miles from Alva, home of NWOSU. It is about an hour’s drive from my hometown of Enid.
It is always fun to go to a new place and show the local people your wares. I sold a few books, and the local library was wonderful. I bought pecans from Friends of the Library and my husband purchased some used books in the back from them too. We ate lunch at Lola’s Mexican Restaurant a few doors down from the library (very good!) and then strolled Main Street in the sunshine. I bought hot chocolate from a couple of cute little boys and maybe a homemade chocolate chip cookie. Fall is a wonderful time of year, and it was great to meet the friendly people of Cherokee.
I’d love to go back next year!
