As we approach the holiday season, we tend to be more mindful of the needs in our community. We are fortunate to have so many individuals and organizations that provide examples of and opportunities to give back and I’m always proud to live in a place that need only suggest a need before someone creates an event or an organization to help. For this issue we updated our lists of non-profits and charities that are in or serving Georgetown and we organized them by type to help you discover ways you can help the community in ways that matter to you, too.
For starters, as an individual and an organization herself, Nick Austin is a quintessential giver, who is constantly sharing her vision and talent to encourage others with her We Are Not Broken studios and book.
For Veterans’ Day, make plans to watch the 9/11 exhibit roll into the city Nov. 5 and visit the Rotary Club of Georgetown’s Field of Honor November 5-11 to see the “Never Forget” remembrance.
We are also celebrating the decennial of Honor Flight Austin. We are thrilled to help them recruit for their upcoming World War II flights and share updates about a program that has such a strong connection to Georgetown and Sun City.
We also join so many others in Central Texas to mourn the loss of Leo “Mr. Georgetown” Woods but also celebrate the love and service he gave to our city for more than five decades. In between, please enjoy our Thanksgiving ideas, satire, and silliness and remember, as Leo always said, “It’s a great day to live in Georgetown.”
