November the Beginning of the "Busy Season"
Monday, November 24, 2008
This month has been flying by and it seems each year we strive to accomplish more. Does this really work for us? You notice people scurring each place and I wonder if they are truly enjoying themselves?
I am......this month has been exciting in more ways than before. My daughter celebrated her 13th birthday at the Ten Pin Bowling in the black lights. Her cake was a beautiful ice cream cake from the fantastic Marble Slab to which we fed everyone possible and still have some left. We went to the Back Street Boys Concert in Grande Prairie. Shocking GP has grown so much to see concerts here is amazing! We sang along and bebopped with the rest of the kids and people my age who enjoyed their music when they were younger.
The next week took us out to the Ducks Unlimited Annual Event. This year the TEC Centre at Evergreen Park fulfilled the evening with amazing food and atmosphere. It's always great to see so many people support this great cause.
Next was the Festival of Trees organized and supported by the QEII Foundation. The committee did an amazing job and the room always lights up your heart to move forward to the season of Christmas. It always engages me to strive and have my tree put up at home and the hotel stylishly decorated.
Coming up in Grande Prairie besides the endless concerts of Kenny Rogers, James Blunt and the Second Stree Theatre Productions is our local hockey team: The Storm. I encourage everyone to take in a game or two to whoop and holler and release some pent up energy. The team can use more fan support.
Just a reminder: Tis the Season - and you'll see me out "Shaking my Bells" for the Salvation Army Christmas Kettles. We will be located at the Prairie Mall, Wal-Mart and many other locations throughout the city. As mentioned in a recent column in the Daily Herald Tribune, Grande Prairie has received an increase of usage at the Foodbank. The over 55000 pieces of food that was previously picked up through our Rotary Foodbank Drive may only make it till end of January. I hope if you are able to help out please make a contribution at your local grocery store. You never know when your kindness can make a huge impact on others.
With all the season flowing through my veins.....I will end this here but not until I remind everyone that the Santa Claus Parade is this Sunday. A good opportunity to send Santa your letter, freeze your tush and then head to your local Tim Horton's or Starbucks for one of their tantizing steamy hot chocolates.
Till next time, be good, stay safe and appreciate all that we have in life.

I don't know about all of you but if Naomi is to be out "Shaking her Bells" at the Prairie Mall for the food bank, I will be there with my camera and few dollars! I would hate to miss out on the opportunity to take a few black mail pics and support a great cause!
Tis the season...
