Saturday Mornings at the Alpharetta Farmers Market




If you are looking for something fun to do on a Saturday morning, try visiting the Alpharetta Farmers Market from 8:00 AM to 12:30 PM.   You can just stroll around or take in some really good buys on fruits, vegetables, plants, pastries and more.  After our walk through the market, Tony and I stopped in a few of the wonderful shops in Alpharetta.

U.S.A. Flag Day - June 14th

Did you know that June 14th is Flag Day?  June 14, 1777 was the day the United States of America adopted the stars and stripes as its flag.   Do you know who Bernard J. Cigrand is?   On June 14th, 1885, Bernard J. Cigrand, a teacher at Stony Hill School, placed a 10 inch, 38- star flag in a bottle on his desk then assigned essays on the flag and its significance. Bernard's love and respect of the flag brought about what we as Americans celebrate as  Flag Day.  To learn more, click on this link:  http://www.nationalflagday.com/default.asp
