November/December 2020 – Exclamation Points!

The Holidays of 2020! –

The 2020 holidays are almost here. This year has definitely left us all wondering what the holidays will be like with social distancing, masks and limited events. However, this year more than ever we should treasure the time we have with our families. ’Tis the season of family and loved ones putting them first on your list. Try some of these fun ideas.  Create a new family tradition, cook and eat together, volunteer as a family and get active together by going on evening walks around your neighborhood checking out the Christmas lights. Carving out family time will allow you and your family a season with more calm and joy. Here’s to 2020!

Each and every one are the reason we are able to do what we do: bring you the people places and happenings in our community. We wish you all a very blessed Thanksgiving and a very Merry Christmas! We look forward to seeing and hearing from you in 2021!

Absolutely yours,

Kay Garrett
