Thanksgiving Marks Start Of Busy Holiday Season



Tellabration is over for another year. It was a wonderful evening and the audience loved it. These storytellers and musicians put so much into their presentations and they do it just for the love of telling stories.

Over the Thanksgiving weekend, all the shops will be open in Pine and Strawberry. Be sure to stop in for all sorts of great gifts and decorating ideas. Our little communities really get into the Christmas spirit and are delighted to share.

Looking Glass Books is offering a meditation class, teaching breathing techniques so essential to the meditative process. The workshop is at 6:30 p.m., Friday, Nov. 28. There is no charge, and walk-ins are welcome, but RSVPs would be appreciated. Call (928) 476-4771 for information.
