Our son recently started working at Chick-fil-A in Brick, NJ. When I checked out their Facebook page, there was this announcement about something called, Cow Appreciation Day! We had never heard of this before! But when his sisters and I found out, it was immediately on our "to-do" list. We had construction paper and foam masks and pipe cleaners in black and white. So we spent the afternoon happil... read more >
I just had to share the Cow Appreciation Day notice with my daughter. She sounded interested.
"Would you like me to make something? I have eight yards of holstein fabric."
"Oh, something easy, like capes," she said.
Capes? No way. I make pillowcase dresses for poor children as a ministry outreach. I made dresses for her daughters, pajamas for her son and an apron for her. For her husband, I made a... read more >
When I was in elementary and middle school, I decided to start a little cow collection. Any cute cow item I saw I would buy and add to my shelf of cows. When I went away to college I packed up all my cows in a box and put them high on a shelf. I moved home after my junior year at college, and when I heard it was Cow Appreciation Day, I had a great idea for a costume. I dusted off my old box of cow... read more >
Both my husband and the original chicken sandwich are celebrating their 50th birthdays this year. Both originated in 1964. His birthday is the end of August so we counted back 50 days and are having 50 days of fun. Each day we are trying to do something fun to commemorate the event. Lucky for us, Cow Appreciation Day fell on DAY ONE! We have never attended one before, so we were not sure about t... read more >
Young Life Southwind sends a big Moo Thank you to The Villages Chick-fil-A/ Karen Mercer for 75 sandwiches and helping feed our camp staff on their day off! Moo! Eat Mor Chickan! We had to crop about 50 other people out of our picture. High school and college students are giving up a month of their summer to serve their middle school friends! We love Chick-fil-A and the sandwiches are such a tr... read more >
So you ask why is this a memorable Cow Appreciation Day? For 6 years my husband and I struggled to have a baby and on August 24th 2013 we finally got our miracle - a baby boy! I decided for the first year of his life every week I would take a picture and post it on Facebook every Saturday. Each picture is themed and most of the time Benjamin is dressed up. Since I am a HUGE Chick-fil-A fan (everyo... read more >
Our family of ten, with another one on the way in less than two weeks, has been serving as missionaries in Ukraine for almost two years. Many times while in Ukraine we talked about missing Chick-fil-A...the food and the sincere hospitality.
We returned home from our time of serving on an extremely strict budget since Dad doesn't officially start work again until September. Yesterday, we heard... read more >
On July 7, 2014 my daughter was married. We wanted to have Chick-fil-A cater her wedding, but of course they are not open on Sunday so that was out. When we found these fans at the Chick-fil-A in Gainesville, Florida we knew exactly how to incorporate our favorite cows into the wedding! We were kindly given 30 fans and took them home and made half of them bride cows with veils and rhinestone neckl... read more >
