Falling Forward

Labor Day is done, school is back in session, and the beginnings of Fall color are starting to appear.  It is that time of year--the great "pause"--when the hurry-up-and-enjoy-summer-before-it's-gone--frenetic pace fades and the get-ready-for-snow panic sets in.  September is one of those "remember" months where reflections of Spring/Sumer past merge into ruminations on the symbolic color changes and leaf dropings that mark the end of another growing year.  We at the Ironwood Chamber of Commerce always do a bit of remembering as well, as September 15 marks our annual Depot Park picnic and Summer Raffle drawing.  Tickets are still on sale up until the moment of the drawing (only $5 a ticket).  They can be purchased from any of the Chamber members hosted here on this website.  As this is an important fund-raiser for the Chamber, please invite your friends to try their luck with a ticket this year--things might just "fall" in their direction at the drawing!
