    A Gumby Festival–I just had to find out more about this event! Most moms and children remember Gumby affectionately.
    After my second child was born, I was so bombed when I couldn’t find Gumby in the stores! I was so jazzed to discover that Gumby originated in my own home town of 39 years. Wow! What fun that will be. (I work as a Community Liaison for a school district in the area, so I love to promote resources for children, especially those with special needs. You can be sure I will promote this during the remaining time of this semester, under “Summer Events.”).
