As I write this, I’m just wrapping up Pixiefest, an event I helped create and execute for the Kiwanis Club of Lincoln City as a new fundraiser.
Planning this event—not to mention executing it—has been an adventure. In addition to all sorts of new-event growing pains, our very first day of the event was conducted in 93 degree weather (yes, on the Oregon Coast, where we’re usually in the 60s during the day in the summer). Needless to say, we had not planned for that in our initial preparations.
