2 Preparedness Events this weekend

September is still Preparedness Month, so here are a couple of Preparedness Events locally, this weekend.

The Cabela's store in Lacey, WA, is having a Preparedness Fair Saturday and Sunday.  Rumor has it a local amateur radio club will be set up and demonstrating, and a blogger you may know will be there at least part of Saturday.  (Like that's going to draw anyone in...)

Secondly, the city of Auburn, WA, will also be having their own Preparedness Fair this Saturday.
