Corn Roast, an Indian Summer, Preservation Bloomfield Favorite seeks Sponsors,

Dear Friends,

I am writing to ask you a favor in regard to our upcoming CORN ROAST scheduled for Sunday, September 20th.

Last season an important part of our success equation was SPONSORSHIPS.
These donations leveraged our hard work into producing pure profit for the Barton Farmhouse. This is why they are so important to our organization.

Unfortunately, it may be difficult to approach the same sponsors that were ever so generous for last year’s event.
This is the precise reason I ask each of you to look to your immediate network, reach out, and collect a minimum of a one sponsorship each.
Think about it…..if every recipient of this message reached out we could collect thousands of dollars. We can do it!

The $100 sponsorship includes 2 adult tickets (a $40 value) and recognition on our banner which will be displayed at the registration table.

In addition we can’t take for granted the importance of great ATTENDANCE.
People are the most important aspect to our event where good times are shared and memories made.
So I ask that you participate in a sponsorship and in addition share the attached flyer with your friends, family and/or neighborhood groups.

I want to thank all for your contributions of creativity and hard work in planning this event and to those who will be sponsors.

Rain or shine we are confident that because of YOU this will be our best Corn Roast yet!

Thank you very much.

IT WAS THE BEST OF TIMES. It was the worst of times.It was the age of wisdom. It was the age of foolishness.  It was the epoch of incredulity. It was the season of light. It was the season of darkness; It was the spring of hope. It was the winter of despair. We had everything before us. We had nothing . We were all going direct to heaven. We were all going the other way- In short, the period was so far like the Present period that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on it being received for good or for evil, in the superlative  degree of comparison only.
There was a woman with a fair face, who taught Mah Jong on the City Commission of Birmingham.

There was a woman with a fair face who when told the peasants have no Bread replied, “Then let them run for office.” On the  commission of Bloomfield Hills.

In both Cities  it was clearer than  Crystal to the  lords of  the state Preserves  of loaves and fishes  that  things  in General  were settled forever.

It was the year of our lord Two Thousand and fifteen.
