November Weekend Events: A Thankful Harvest Season Is Upon Us! 11/12-14

After being out of town for a week, I’m back and raring to go for Thanksgiving! I see Thanksgiving in several ways, as a Fall, Harvest, and Thanksgiving season all rolled into one! Fall has such vibrancy and beauty to the outdoor colors of God’s creation that I don’t want to stay inside. The crisp coolness of the air feels good and the air just smells so inviting invoking thoughts of jumping into piles of leaves and sipping hot cocoa by a warm fire.

Then, even though most gardens are through producing any fruits and vegetables, it is still a time to reflect on all of the goodness of a bountiful Harvest. This brings us to Thanksgiving. What an awesome time of year to capture all of our wonderful memories from the year and be thankful for God’s many blessings in our lives!

As we spend time with our families and friends, lets keep in mind that a “Thankful Harvest Season is Upon Us”! This weekend, there are just a couple of fun things to do, but you may know of something that I have missed. Please feel free to let us know what is going on in your neighborhood!

Friday night we have a Benefit Concert for the High Country CrimeStoppers. This family friendly evening of inspiring music will feature Glory Road, a contemporary worship band of First Baptist Blowing Rock, with guests, Democracy of Our Youth on Fri., Nov. 12th, at 7pm at Harvest House, located at 247 Boone Heights Drive, Boone. Admission is by donation, with 100 % of donations, minus venue expense, going directly to High Country Crimestoppers, which serves Watauga and Avery counties. Come on out and help support those that watch our communities on our behalf!

Then Saturday we have one of the first of the season, the Big pre-holiday Benefit Sale. Held at the Western Watauga Community Center at 1081 old Us Hwy 421 in Sugar Grove this Sat., Nov. 13th from 8am-3pm. The sale, a  fund raiser to benefit the Senior Center, will be held indoors & on the covered porch, featuring a variety of high quality items furnished by participants of the Senior Center and Creative Arts classes. Donations are being accepted as well. Call for info at 828-297-5195.

Have a fun and safe weekend!
