Thanksgiving and shopping time


Okay, it is the day all of us decide to put on a few extra pounds! How can you resist when you sit down at the table with your loved ones and have all that great food in front of you. Definitely a good time to count our blessing and give thanks for all we have. Don’t forget to give thanks to all the soldiers serving our country at this time. It is because of their strength that we can sit down with our families and feel safe. Thank you to them and Happy Thanksgiving to everyone from the Montrose-Verdugo Chamber of Commerce. (PS: Do not forget our four legged family members – they love Thanksgiving also!)

Uptown Face & Body Care has a “new client” special promotion going on until Dec. 24.  A classic European facial and one hour massage for only $75. Now that is a great gift for that special person in your life.

There are specials going on everywhere in Montrose so come on down, have lunch or dinner and do some shopping. The perfect day to do this would be Saturday, Dec. 5 so you can also see the 33rd annual Christmas parade. Come and see Santa & Mrs. Claus with an added bonus: Smokey Bear is the Grand Marshal! What a great family outing. Parade starts at 6:15 p.m., so come early!

Do you realize there are only 29 shopping days until Christmas?

Don’t miss our holiday mixer on Wednesday, Dec. 2 at the Glendale NewsPress, located at 221 N. Brand Blvd., second floor, in Glendale. Starting at 6 p.m. and continuing till 8 p.m., this is a great way to start the holiday season.
