Guest Author: Julia Gorzka Freeman

Today's submission is an invitation to what sounds like a pretty cool event, forwarded to us from someone who's tapped into all the cool happenings in Tampa Bay, Julia Gorzka Freeman. You can visit her website at She's one of the most genuinely nice people I know and once you're connected to Julia, you're pretty much connected to everybody.

Ruby C. Williams Annual Gathering
Saturday, November 5th * 11:00 a.m.
Ruby hosts an Annual Gathering at her fruit and vegetable stand in Plant City where she puts together a program thanking God for her year and harvest, singing hymns, enjoying speakers and feeding the masses. She spends days cooking BBQ ribs and chicken, greens, squash, cornbread and other farm-rich southern comfort food! The program and the food are all complimentary but donations are appreciated, plus there will be art and farm-fresh produce for salse, so bring some cash.
Here's a note from Ruby:

"We are asking each of you to please bring a fan, a friend, or family member. We will be giving away great art and this will contribute to help me fund the gallery we need to repair a place to put the art. Our plan is to set The Art Haven up outside with lot of good art. etc Plenty of Fresh Farm Food this year from Ruby. Our farm goal is $10,000 now and in a few more month we will Fund Drive to raise more. It good that people want us to keep the old stand. (smile) But it need work now Free dinner after program All you can eat fresh vegetables Love Ruby C."
