creating placemats to be delivered by Meals on Wheels and collected
500 pounds of food for the food bank. Great Job Lakeview Superheros.

The biggest Meteor Shower of the Year is Tonight
The Geminids are a fairly young shower—people didn’t even begin to keep records on the meteor shower until around the American Civil War. Initially, it was a light enough shower that it barely registered for any but the most hardcore of 19th-century astronomy geeks. Since then, though, the number of meteoroids simply exploded. Today, the Geminids are almost always the largest meteor shower of the year—and 2015 will be no exception. (cnet.com)
Very happy to report the traffic percentages have risen again in all areas.

From The Southerner
With the weather starting to feel like fall, it is a reminder to me that my favorite time of the year is almost here!! Thanksgiving and Christmas!
Nothing like a Southern Meal with all the trimmings, spending time with friends, family and loved ones! The look and excitement on our children’s face as they open gifts and the sparkle in our loved ones eyes!
It also reminds me that there are those less fortunate, those who don’t have family, loved ones. There are people who don’t know where their next meal is coming from.
With that being said The Southerner will be open on Saturday November 22nd serving the less fortunate in our community with a FREE HOLIDAY LUNCH from 11am until 2pm. Jeanie and I are working on all the details and will be posting all details soon! Please share our post and let’s get the word out and help our friends in need!
We will need volunteers to help cook and serve…so if anyone is interested please message me!
