Have an Active Autumn
As the seasons change and the days get shorter, take advantage of this great time to be outdoors and enjoy the fresh air before cold weather sets in. Here are a few ideas to get you motivated:
- Visit a farmer’s market (Huber’s Orchard & Winery is a good bet in Kentuckiana)
- Take a Fall foliage drive
- Have a picnic
- Fly a kite
- Make a bonfire
- Play some family touch football
- Hike/walk through the woods
- Go apple picking and bake a pie
- Get lost in a corn maze
- Make a bird feeder
- Plan an evening of stargazing
- Collect leaves, pine cones to decorate the mantle
Eastern Kentucky Disaster Relief
The recent flooding disaster in Eastern Kentucky has left many people homeless and without any possessions. The unprecedented torrential rain wiped out properties that had been in families for generations. Many, if not most, don’t have flood insurance because their homes were not located in a flood zone. Axiom has donated to the American Red Cross to help people recover from the massive disaster. You can click here for a link from Greater Louisville, Inc., listing other organizations that are collecting supplies and donations for the thousands affected by this tragedy.
