It’s a Shore Thing This Weekend

We go together like milk and cookies.

This weekend, take the family to see one of the top lights display in SWFL, enjoy some of the top classics music has to offer, grab a gift for a local senior and end the weekend with …dare I say it? Cookies.

Local Seniors & You

Many seniors in our area are spending the holidays alone. Meals on Wheels & Community Cooperative are working hard to ensure that those who are spending it alone are at least not hungry nor without a gift. They’re collecting items through their Adopt-A-Senior campaign. All of these items can be found while you’re out doing your normal holiday shopping. It’s so easy and you can rock someone’s Christmas.
