This time of year usually brings on a lot of stress. And sometimes the things we stress about arent really that important in the grand scheme of things. Theres no better way to put things into perspective than donating time to help others. 2011 was a tumultuous year for the economy. Job loss, rising interest rates on home loans and health issues left some unemployed or in worse cases, homeless. There are many foundations that need extra help this holiday season. To find where you can put your skills to work log on to www.volunteermatch.com. Or call any nursing home or assisted living facility and find out if you can visit an elderly resident. You might be surprised at how a simple visit can brighten their day and yours.
Weve got big things planned for 2012 and we cant wait to share it all with you! Keep up with whats going on in Wilson County and maybe win a cool prize, become a fan on Facebook!
Home and Garden is a very popular section and this issue we are happy to showcase the home of Wilson County residents, Mike and Judy Cox in the January/February issue. Their home is breathtaking, especially this time of year. If you havent seen their home all lit up for Christmas, you must drive by sometime before the end of the year. Their display will get anyone in the mood for Christmas.
Be safe this holiday season! Send us your family pictures of your family enjoying the holiday season. You might see them pop up on our Facebook page!
