The Washington County Fair has ended for another year, racing season is almost over, and school is getting ready to start. All this signals that the end of summer is just around the corner. But don't despair because with summer's end comes autum's beginning. My sugar maples are already turning bright orange and red. I've been raking leaves and getting the garden ready for winter. Last Sunday I attended the closing performance of Cosi fan Tutti at Hubbrd Hall. Now I'm no opera buff, usually can't stay awake through the first act, but this was different. First of all, you get to see the singers close-up. And they could act! It was just wonderful to see a 130+ year old opera house back in action. Hats off to Benji and the entire Opera Company. I hear they are planning on more shows so be sure and check the Hubbard Hall website for future events.
