By the time you read this, it is my hope we will all be enjoying election withdrawal, and, perhaps, replacing political mindedness with gratitude for Veterans while looking forward to celebrating a happy holiday season.
With that in mind, we present our annual Giving Issue, featuring wonderful people and organizations you might like to keep in mind as the season of giving and hope approaches. I am pleased to shine a light on Boy Scouts of America, The Kelley Foundation, Helping Hands of Georgetown, and the Williamson County Children’s Advocacy Center. All serve our community by caring about children and families, and each has continued to serve those in need, even while facing the same financial and logistical challenges we’ve all encountered this year.
For our focus on Veterans’ Day, I am happy I was able to visit with my beautiful friend, Jeanne Cox, who is as committed to celebrating and honoring our Veterans at The Rotary Club of Georgetown’s Field of Honor®, as she is a proud mom of a Navy Corpsman.
We also have a new and very special feature. Check out our special “Thriving After 55” section, which will introduce you, every month, to local folks and ideas that remind us that age is just a number.
Since we’re thinking about the holidays, there is also enough turkey talk in this issue to make you a tiny bit sleepy. As I write this, I’m already thinking about the best way to reach Santa Claus for our December issue, and I am happy to report I will be camera-in-hand at the annual Lighting of the Courthouse Square in a few weeks!
