Phew...Busy Week/Weekend in This Town

Snapshot of a busy week in the Rochester area!

Have to talked to you all about the past week in our area. We truly have everything we need locally. This week the Auburn Hills Chamber of Commerce held its women's luncheon. Anne Doyle spoke to a sold out crowd about the truth of empowering women. What a great time to hear that women can and women do...if you haven't heard that before-it's The Women's Fund motto! Doyle is certainly a spokesperson for strong women who can have it all. And, bonus, I won tickets to The Taste of Auburn Hills in a business card raffle! So, I'll be seeing you there.

Then, over to Rochester Hills, had my first lymph drainage treatment on Thursday at CSI of MI on Barclay Circle. This team of therapist, specialists and nutritionists is amazing. I spent time with the director and learned that she offers FSM to people here in Rochester Hills and many in Macomb County. This is the same treatment that she uses on major athletes across the country.

On Friday I was in the office at Crittenton Home Care and then met with the Rochester Regional Service Collaboration to drop off the donations that were collected at Busch's for the first food drive for the collaboration. Our community is amazing! We raised more than $6,000 in groceries and funds in just 10 days! Rochester Area Neighborhood House Food Pantry, Community House Community Kitchen and Blessings in a Backpack all have groceries for their families to last weeks.

Across the street right after that, Rochester Regional Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors and Director gathered to celebrate the ribbon cutting of Bloomberry in the Papa Joe's plaza. This frozen yogurt is going to be a favorite. Healthy, with probiotics and it's so refreshing. I had a pomegranate frozen yogurt...certainly going back for more! Really great prices too. Be sure to check out the photo of Chamber Director Sheri Heiney after the ribbon cutting...being her funny self!

The great thing about this community is that I can get everywhere, fast. Between all of the above was a trip to Urban Dog for the fall bathing and trim for Moses the dog. Those groomers are the best. I did find out that the fleas are expected to be rough this season, so be sure to give your pup the flea treatments. I didn't know that dogs can get fleas from just brushing up against a leaf that a squirrel or another dog passed previously. That is not something I want to risk!

Saturday was an in town day spent with lunch at Rochester Park after the Rochester Rotary Run. The run benefited The Food Pantry and Community Kitchen with a 5k and 10k in the park.

Phew...time to play on Sunday! Down to Troy Daze where I almost purchased the cutest baby pig from the petting farm. Happily, I settled for lemonade and some pizza and wandered amongst the goats for a bit.

Now here we are to another Monday. It's Rehab Week nationally, so I'll be spending my mornings this week dropping off muffins and breakfast goodies to the Rehab facilities that work with Crittenton Home Care to thank them for all of their hard work with our patients.

Tuesday I'm honored to sit down for a board meeting with Paint Creek Center of the Arts. We'll be de-briefing the efforts of hundreds of volunteers and guests who were at Art & Apples this a few weeks ago. Just starting into the fall season and it's off to the races!
