Thanks to Everyone
The Spirit Fair in Cazenovia was a SUCCESS
Thanks to the attendees, vendors and the media for helping making our (Spirit House Society) Spirit Fair in Cazenovia at the American legion this past Sunday, August 14th, a success.
About 200 people, not including kids and dogs came. A hundred people signed up for our newsletter and eleven new members joined the Spirit House Society.
Everyone had a good time. A few people brought their kids and several people brought their pets for a pet reading with a pet psychic. All added to a festive atmosphere.
It was not only a success for the Spirit House Society, but vendors participating did well also. Many readers were booked solid from 10am to 6pm. Red and White Café from DeRuyter served up some great dishes from mango muffins, to cauliflower curry soup, to sandwiches made with their homemade breads.

Building Our Business
The importance of this event goes beyond the fun we had and the money that we raised. It marks the beginning of building our business, or least one of our businesses focused on the metaphysical and spiritual side of things. We are building momentum call it energy, with our events, through our newsletter and members that we hope will transfer over to Spirit House. So that should we succeed in getting funding from NYS for purchase that we will be able to hit the ground running and hold events and attract people from the get go.
To Help Pay Architect
Money raised will help pay for preservation architects Crawford and Stearns and building up cash reserves. Carl Stearns is currently working on putting together a conditions report on Spirit House that we will need in applying for an acquisition grant with the New York State Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation.
Our next event is tentatively planned for Saturday October 29, 2011.
