Bulletin! Bulletin! Bulletin! Cathy Wilson of Wade Hampton was spotted outdoors in her driveway before noon! For those of you who don’t know Cathy, she is a night owl and has never been spotted anywhere before mid-afternoon. The reason for this early appearance was that she was having a tag sale. Bob Sherard of Gator Lane has proof with a picture of Cathy and the time the picture was taken. No one would believe it otherwise.
The Royal Readers met at the home of Kathy Adams and as usual Kathy was the perfect hostess and her home was warm and welcoming. The book read was “Rainwater” by Sandra Brown. All the readers enjoyed the book and the general consensus was it was easy reading, not particularly thought provoking, but it did resonate somewhat with today’s economic times and the story’s Depression setting. Their next meeting will be a Christmas luncheon at the wonderful restaurant Wren at which time the books for 2012 will be chosen. Royal Readers wishes everyone Happy Holidays and keep reading.
Bentley Sage Stirling owned by Richard and Nancy Steeves of James Byrne was one of the 12 winners of The Island Packet & Beaufort Gazette Pet Calendar Contest and came in fourth out of 57 entries. Bentley will be featured in the 2012 calendar. Bentley has developed an attitude and posed very well during his photo shoot.
As a reminder: The Festival of Trees runs from December 5-10 at the Charles “Lind” Brown Neighborhood Activity Center, formerly known as The Greene Street Gym.

There are a variety of ways you can choose to donate: working a two to three hour shift at the Gift and Gourmet shop; making baked goods (holiday wrapped); making handmade items valued less than $50; bringing new or gently used children’s books; making jams or jellies; or through a tax deductible monetary donation. Please contact me at 322-0472 if you decide to contribute. In the past, the Royal Pines community has generously donated in various ways and I hope we can continue with that generosity again this year.
