Fun Sun Fact:

There have been studies that show that depression occurs in people during the change of seasons. As winter approaches and the earth tilts away from the sun, the days become shorter. This means less sunlight is available for our use. Many people find themselves depressed at this time of year, and the cause has been linked to the lack of sunlight.

JILLIAN HARRIS MEET AND GREET

It seemed to all start with a quick appearance on the Bachelor and then on the Bachelorette, but before all that, I wasn’t just a hot tub expert, I was a designer! With a love for restaurants, food, design, fashion, family & friends - I love to take on life with every little ounce of energy my 5’2” frame has! Post Bachelorette, I was blessed with some career opportunities, like landing a spot as a designer on Extreme Makeover, Home Edition. This sparked my creativity back up, and I realized how much I loved to design AND help others all at once. UPTOWN Saturday, July 27 11:00 am – 2:00 pm Free

Fun Sun Fact:

It takes the light of the sun eight minutes to reach us, and still it is only a fraction of the powerful heat generated by our star. Without the light of the sun, there would not be any life on earth. There would be no star to orbit and no heat to sustain us. In short, without the life giving light of the sun, we would be a species lost. In fact, we would not even exist.

Fun!

Fun Sun Fact: Life on this planet would not be possible without the warmth that the sun provides. A combination of the radiant light of the sun creating direct warmth and the atmosphere retaining and distributing that heat allows plant and animal life to thrive on this planet.
