Thanksgiving is in the books, and December is off to a quick start. We have lots of offerings the month of December, among them lots of live music. As much as we try to have the calendar accurate all the time, December tends to be a month where there are more changes than usual, with folks from the community calling in to come for a visit, or maybe a carole or two. Please note two events that did not make the calendar this month. Tomorrow (Wednesday, December 4th at 6pm) please join us in the living room for a wonderful performance by a local acapella quartet. Come back the following week for Life Serve Blood Center's blood drive on Wednesday, December 11th from 9-11:30 am.
