November brings piles of fall leaves, pumpkins and a time to give thanks.
This month, we take you behind the scenes of the Radio City Rockettes Christmas Spectacular that debuts Nov. 10 and runs through Nov. 27 at the Durham Performing Arts Center for 37 amazing shows. We’ll introduce two talented Rockettes and discover what it means for them to bring the show home to Carolina for the first time.
Staying active may not achieve the legs of a Rockette, but it can bring together a community. We’ll learn about Active Laurinburg and the connections that have grown out of the Internet into a thriving garden that grows everything from broccoli to flowers (seen above), friendships and people interacting for the benefit of health, happiness and economics.
Thriving muscadine wines now paint the picturesque landscape in Angier at Gregory Vineyards, the newest North Carolina winery to open and the latest stop on our winery tour, where the Gregorys have already collected six medals at last month’s N.C. State Fair.
Also taking home special honors this month are the two finalists and 2011 Moore County Caregiver of the Year. Three very special ladies share their personal stories and how they have dedicated themselves to caring for others.
We’ll also hear about how one man chose homelessness to grow his faith and thankfulness when author Mike Yankoski visits the region for the annual Sandhills/Moore Coalition Nativity Luncheon.
“The Gift of Family and Friends” is the theme for this year’s Weymouth Center’s 2011 Christmas House on display Nov. 30 through Dec. 3.
And when it comes to gifts, hearing is one we often take for granted. The latest technology in assistive devices can aid communications, an especially nice gift as family and friends reach out with the holiday season approaching.
From the OutreachNC family to all of our loyal readers and advertisers, we are so thankful to bring the magazine to you each month. We wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving! Until next month…
