Everyone Talks About the Weather but No One Does Anything About It!

Everyone Talks About the Weather but No One Does Anything About It!

Imagine our chagrin as we watched the weather forecast for Sunday (the date of the Big 5H Party) change from 68 & sunny to 62 with a chance of rain.

We are undaunted!! Here’s why.

1. Much of the Party will be held inside Chelsea High School. The speakers (Joy from the Today Show, John from Fit by Nature & Mike from Andy’s Angels), the Healthy Chef competition, the kids games in the gym, all the Community Wellness Coalition & other booths… there’s too much to mention it all. It’s all inside.
2. It’s just a 30% chance of rain & who believes the weather man, anyway?
3. The Farmer’s Market vendors are well-prepared for all kinds of weather. They’re farmers, for heaven’s sake!
4. We’re from Michigan & so are you. If we let weather ruin our plans we wouldn’t do much of anything. Right?

No matter the weather, we hope you & yours will join us for the 5H Party. It’s this Sunday from noon until 4:00, 740 N. Freer Road. There’s something for everyone.

What Not to Wear

Monday, September 12th, 2011

Cocktail Dress – the only cocktails will be fresh Michigan cider and clear, refreshing water.
Sport coat, suit or tuxedo – if you join national fitness training expert, John Colver, you won’t want to risk pit stains.
Tight waist band – we’ll have fun, healthy snack options. Tight clothing may hamper taste testing.
Cute shoes with heals – in case you join the Ultimate Frisbee game or pinch hit for your town’s softball team, you sure don’t want to break a heel (or look silly).
‘Business Casual’ – you’ll be overdressed for this family friendly, relaxed and playful day.

Best bets for the 5H party on September 25th:
Athletic shoes
T & sweatshirts
Comfortable jeans or slacks
Baseball caps, pony tails or any other comfortable hair management system
Logo wear representing your school district or the Lions
Bike helmets (especially if you come by bike) – bring the family’s bikes if you can. There will be bike & helmet safety checks on site.
Pockets to stash recipe cards and other goodies you may pick up at the event

The party happens, rain or shine. We’re taking over the entire Chelsea High School campus so there’s plenty of room inside if the weather doesn’t cooperate.
