Sunday, Sept 21st – Autumn Moon Festival

This year our FCC Autumn Moon Festival will be a bit different than years past, though no less fun!  We’ve found a wonderful new venue:   Sunny Acers Farm.  http://www.sunnyacresfarmky.com/Farm/
We’ll have hay rides, pumpkin picking, a corn maze, a petting zoo, balloon release and lantern parade just like always!  Plus, there is a farm market with fresh me…at, eggs and produce!
If the change of venue wasn’t enough to shake things up, we’re also changing our dinner!  This year we’ll have a Chili Cookoff!  If you’d like to participate you can make your favorite chili and bring it in your crockpot. Everyone may vote for their favorite chili and the winner will receive a Target gift card.  If you would prefer not to enter the chili cookoff, please bring a dessert item (either homemade or store-bought) to share. Please indicate on the registration form if your family will be bringing chili or dessert. There will be hotdogs, peanut butter and jelly and drinks provided by FCC.
Registration is required.  Please request a registration form and have it postmarked by September 12th to avoid late fees! See you there!

Monthly Dinner – May 14 at Mike Linnigs

The next FCC monthly dinner will be on Wednesday May 14th at 6:00p.m. at Mike Linnig’s Seafood Restaurant. For those of you who have been there, you know what a great setting their outdoor garden will be for our gathering. We will reserve all the picnic tables around the playground so the kids can play and have fun while all of us parents can socialize. A lot of people even like to bring their own table cloth to use on the picnic tables. When you get there just go to the playground area and a
server will take your order. If you are not fond of seafood then don’t worry,
they have plenty of other items such as: steak, chicken, burgers, grilled cheese
and salads. Their portions are huge so two people can usually split a dinner. I
have put a link to their menu at the bottom of this email. Please note that we
will still have the dinner there even if it rains. We will just move inside to
their north dining room if that happens.

The restaurant is very easy to find. Just take Gene Snyder Freeway from I-65 and
head toward Dixie Highway. As you cross over Dixie Highway it turns into Green
Belt Hwy but you will still want to continue on straight toward Riverport. At
the second stop light you will see a gas station on the left. Turn left there
and as you go around the corner you will see the restaurant about 1/4 mile down
on the left. Now if you are coming from the WattersonExpressway then just take
Cane Run Rd South for about 7 or 8 miles until you see a sign reading Gene
Snyder Freeway 2 miles. You will then see a gas station on the right. Turn right
there and as you go around the corner you will see the restaurant about 1/4 mile
down on the left. Below I placed a link to a map of how to get there. Their rule
for groups is that gratuity will automatically be added to your ticket so you
don’t need to double tip your servers.

Ice Skating

Instead of our usual monthly dinner for April, we’ve decided to give ice skating a try!  We’ll be meeting at Iceland Sports Complex on Saturday April 26th from 11:00 a.m. -1:00 p.m.  This is Iceland’s public skate time.  Admission is $6.00 and skate rental is $2.00.

Iceland is located at 1701 UPS Drive in Louisville. http://www.icelandlouisville.com/page12/index.html

Several of us will be heading to Jason’s Deli on Hurstbourne afterward for lunch.

As always, this event is for those who have adopted, are in the process of adoption or are considering adoption as well as family and friends, so spread the word!

We hope to see you there!   Please let me know if you have any questions.
