Dime Pitch Booth Report From Wayne Simmons

The Sunfield SPY’s Dime Pitch Booth event was a great success at last weekend’s Sunfield Farmers Picnic. Last year, mainly due to COVID, we had to close down early due to lack of volunteer help to run the booth. By comparison, this year we had a tremendous turnout of volunteers, but nonetheless we still had to shut down a little early again because we had so many players and winners throughout the day that we actually ran out of glassware!!!

Without question, this year’s success is attributed to the many volunteers that helped setup and operate this year’s event. My heart felt ‘Thank You’ goes out to:

Parting Comments

• Deep Thought of the Week: “It is only with the heart that one can see rightly---what is essential is invisible to the eye.”

• Notable Quote: “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.—Maya Angelou.

• That’s Puny Department: Attention kids! You should wear glasses while doing math. It improves division.

• Did You Know Section? After needing 13 pints of blood for a surgery at the age of 14, a man named James Harrison pledged to donate blood once he turned 18. It was discovered that his blood contained a rare antigen which cured Rhesus disease. He has since donated blood a record 1,173 times and saved over 2.5 million lives.
