REMEMBERING VETERANS’S DAY!

Good Morning Foodies!

I hope most of you remember that tomorrow is VETERANS’S DAY! This is the official United States holiday that honors people who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces. We all know that the number is quickly dwindling for the survivors of World Wars I & II. I saw on the news the other night that is been 100 plus years since World War I-amazing—but it is good that we still can focus on the effects of war.
When I think of the way we live our lives today, the idea of “VETERANS” always comes to mind! I saw a writing done by MOTHER TERESA that I thought put all this in perspective. It goes like this!

LIFE…It is an OPPORTUNITY…BENEFIT from it.

BEAUTY…ADMIRE it.

A DREAM…REALIZE it.

A CHALLENGE…MEET it.

A DUTY…COMPLETE it.

A GAME…PLAY it.

A PROMISE…FULFILL it.

SORROW…OVERCOME it.

A SONG…SING it.

A STRUGGLE…ACCEPT it.

A TRAGEDY…CONFRONT it.

AN ADVENTURE…DARE it.

LUCK…MAKE it.

TOO PRECIOUS…do not DESTROY it.

LIFE is LIFE…FIGHT for it.

Stop and think about all those bold statements, and then thank GOD and a VET that you can fulfill those adventures!

I have the most respect for all the VETERANS because they are filled with a solemn pride in their unselfish heroism. Stop sometime during the day tomorrow and think of all the little things you do without even thinking about it—THEN REMEMBER, YOU HAVE THAT FREEDOM TO DO THOSE THINGS BECAUSE OF THESE MILITARY PEOPLE! They deserve our respect and thanks! THANK A VETERAN TODAY! GOD BLESS AMERICA AND ITS QUIET HEROES—THE VETERANS!

TAKE NOTE: THE LIGHTING OF THE NATIVITY will take place on Saturday, November 26th from 3:30-6:30 pm. It is a great event to bring your family to witness. There will be activities for the children to do along with taking selfies with SANTA. The DOWNTOWN MARKET VENDORS will be on site and most of the food/beverage places around the COURTHOUSE SQUARE will be open. The WALKING LADIES are presently working on putting permanent lighting of the oaks. We can no longer wrap the trees due to the heavy equipment that is necessary to put the lights on. The heavy equipment was damaging the root system. Unfortunately, we will not have the permanent lighting this coming year. As we all know, products/services are hard to come by. Hopefully, we will have this done soon. The PERMANENT LIGHTING WILL BE USED TO SHOW OFF ALL THE BIG HOLIDAYS THROUGHOUT THE YEAR!

Hope to see you at the COURTHOUSE SQUARE ON SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 26TH! Come join in the CHRISTMAS SPIRIT!

Have a safe and productive weekend!
