Celebrate fall by shopping locally



September 17, 2021 - 4:11 PM

Fall is here and so coming the Autumnal Equinox Sept. 22. There are two equinoxes in the calendar year. The one that occurs in September is known as the autumnal equinox, while the one that happens in the spring is known as the vernal equinox.

During the equinox, night and day are nearly the same length — 12 hours. After the fall equinox, the sun begins to rise later, and nightfall comes sooner. 

The observation that summer is gone — and winter is coming — is everywhere now, the shorter days are bringing cooler weather.

Plants and trees are slowing down, as sunlight decreases, to get ready for the colder season ahead. In the garden, asters and chrysanthemums bloom beautifully as orange pumpkins and corn mazes are a great family activity.

The fall equinox signals cooler temperatures, leaves changing colors, and of course all things pumpkin.

Now is the time to support and shop local, whether it be to purchase pumpkins, gourds, corn stalks for decorating, pumpkin flavored drinks, and food, fall family photos and of course that perfect sweater for sweater weather, our businesses are here to fulfill your needs.

Make sure to share your fall photos with us at the Chamber. You can send them to my email [email protected]. We would love to share them with our members.
