FestiFallin' The Fall Club : November 2016: Volume 3 Issue 2

Piles of leaves have accumulated, begging kids and chipmunks to jump for joy and nudging all to play. start your day by remembering to celebrate Fall.

Here's the bucket list for the boys and girls of Fall 2016:

  1. The Fall Club has been featured in a renowned published work. We are thankful for all of our club members and devotees to the Fall. See what we are savoring here. (Chapel Hill > Cafe Driade)
  2. Drive windows down while listening to "First Day of Autumn"
  3. Grab your eno, find two trees that seem fit, and write down everything you are thankful for in the spirit of Thanksgiving.
  4. Take a walk under old oak trees. Chase falling leaves and see who can catch them on their tongue!
  5. Find out what % Autumn you are by taking this quiz, submitted by member Melisa soon-to-be Smetana ('16).
  6. The colors are spectacular right now. They match the cornucopia that is the Thanksgiving feast. The leaves are hanging on for dear life, waving hello, and then doing their final pirouettes. Collect some, press them, and scrapbook them to remember you fell for Fall in the Autumn of 2016.
  7. Befriend leaves and respond to rivalry week. A pile of leaves are good for wiping tears or jumping into with joy. Acknowledge your emotions.
  8. Mulled wine.
  9. Put on that maroon sweater. Put on those leather booties. Look guud and feel guud.
  10. Go places:

Go local: Shane's Clay Shooting

Go National: Fall club member Toni Pappas ('14) finds joy as she curls into a ball and gets lost in the Fall landscape

Drive to UNC-CH and go up Manning drive towards Columbia. You will see the best angle of the most delightful plum raspberry trees.
