Sundays at Readers'

For those of you who missed our first explanation, we thought we'd do a second because, you know, repetition never hurts, unless it drives you mad, and we aren't about to do that. Anyway, we've dreamed up a weekly program to benefit local charities, non-profits, artist groups. This is how it works:  for the first two hours of every Sunday 10% of whatever we sell in the store and 10% of whatever Foxfire Baking sells in our Reading Garden will be donated to a specific agency. A representative from that group will be on hand, possibly with brochures and other material to promote what they do. You can get to know them and who knows?-- they may even entice a few new recruits to join their cause. This week's beneficiary is Sonoma Overnight Support.  We envision a relaxed, yet fun time in our Reading Garden.  This Sunday, for example, beyond Foxfire Baking's magnificent array of croissants, sticky buns, Danishes, etc., we're going to try to have the Sunday New York Times available for perusal, and with your permission, yours truly will do a little noodling around on his guitar. You don't have to buy anything, but just remember that anything you buy during that time goes towards improving the life of the whole community. So you get yourself a book you were going to get anyway, you indulge in a croissant, and in your own Sunday morning way, you help to put a human, caring face on your town.  That's the idea.
