|Happy August Everyone!
This month marks the thirteenth anniversary of our
GraniteCityGossip.com website. Never in our wildest dreams
all those years ago, while sitting on our mother's patio, did we
think that our crazy idea would become such a success.
We have our advertisers, faithful visitors and Discussion Board
members to thank for keeping our dream alive.
When discussing this month's home page theme, we wanted
something that would reflect that summer is just beginning to
wind down and soon autumn will be knocking at the door.
There is nothing better than sunflowers to celebrate the last
weeks of the season.
Scroll this month's home page and look at all of the activities
that are planned for this month. As always, please send your
announcements and we will include them at no charge.
Thank you all - and here is to the next thirteen years!
