Belchertown Showcase, Take 2

Belchertown CAN and participants of showcase are feeling grateful today -- the weather cooperated for their first annual Belchertown Showcase on Saturday, despite all indications to the contrary.

Yesterday I took the opportunity (twice) to get out to the Belchertown Showcase on the Common (see the previous post). There was a great turnout of vendors and providers, including Mandala Massage (from whom I received a free chair massage), Rippa Chiropractic, PVTRA, Luca's K9 Playhouse (and Shepherd Rescue), Teaching Creatures, the Boy Scout Troop & Cub Scouts, Oak Specialists Inc, Mountain Women Goods, Portraits by Neill, Summersault Soaps, Belchertown Conservation Commission, and so many more -- probably close to 40 (I didn't take paper, so this all from memory and photographs). There was music to listen to, a quiz about Belchertown, contests and raffles, face painting, toys and games, and other entertainment. It was a great place to be.
Here are a few pics from the show:

Town events like this that bring the community together and show off where we live are part of what I love about this area and part of what makes me glad I moved here. Look forward to next year's Showcase.

(The past week's Sentinel lists out other vendors planning to be in attendance -- I just finally had time to open the paper.)
