The Opportunity to Serve Others
When I read about Belinda Spillman's November AR contest, I didn't know what to write about. Like many of you, I do things throughout the year, not just at the holidays. Also, I'm not really looking for "credit" for these things.
When I finally made the decision about my "topic" I ran out of time! The contest ended on Wednesday and I was busy with a new listing. So here I am. I'm still writing my post because I started it and I want to finish it!

Things To Do in Parker, CO: Parker Oktoberfest 2016
Have you ever wondered why Oktoberfest is in September? I have! Here's the short answer:
Oktoberfest began in Munich, Germay on October 12, 1810 to celebrate the marriage of Crown Prince Ludwig and Princess Therese. It became an annual event. Since the weather in October can be miserably cold, the celebration was moved to September! Makes sense to me!
Founded and hosted by the CACC (Council of Arts, Science and Culture) formerly the PAC (Parker Arts Council) and presented by Erdinger Weissbrau, the authentic German brewing company, the 11 Annual Parker Oktoberfest promises to bring … (4 comments)
