The Holidays are Coming

The holidays are coming, the holidays are coming!!

The weather is not saying Thanksgiving, holiday events and decorating, but the kick-off to the many holiday happenings is now only a week-away with Thanksgiving next Thursday, November 24th. Our Community Calendar is full of so many wonderful events, activities and gatherings. I am in awe and so appreciative of the many groups, churches, organizations, businesses and individuals that give of their time and resources to insure that the residents and visitors to our area enjoy a wonderful holiday season. THANK YOU to each and everyone of you for the positive contributions you make to our communities.
While there is something for everyone to enjoy, be sure to share our impressive calendar of events with your family and friends. If you know of some new families, couples or individuals to our communities, why not extend an invitation to them to be your guest at one of our many community celebrations? Sometimes it is not easy for our new-comers to meet and become a part of our activities if they don’t know anyone. Be that new friend! Be sure to check out our impressive calendar of events. Hope to see you this Holiday Season!
