Muncher's recommendations for November
Placeholder Image


Welcome to November, one of the final months of 2011, which we usually classify as "family months," to celebrate with family and friends and gives thanks for everything we have.

We remember those courageous voyagers who left home, traversing ocean waves in search of a new land; whose landing at Plymouth laid the foundation of our nation. But we also give thanks to the many veterans of our great armed forces, who have fought and protected. Locally, we owe so much to the men and women of the 3rd ID and we are so grateful to have them home. We support you now and always.

So grab a sweater and take advantage of the events and history of coastal Georgia.

Occasionally, an event I've listed is canceled or the date is changed. I am sorry but I have no control over that. That is why I try to supply you with all of the information to include web links and phone numbers, if available. If you ever have a community event of interest, please send me the details and I will try to include in the appropriate month. If you ever have anyone who would like to be added to the distribution, send me their name and email address. I always BCC all events so that your personal email address is not in the clear. I hope you appreciate that fact.
