We needed to get in the holiday spirit because our friends across the street, the Palmer Historical and Cultural Center are hosting their annual fundraising Christmas Tree & Wreath Festival starting tomorrow. Life's Memories & More donated a wreath and WOW what gorgeous trees I saw being setup!

Let me know if you want to stop by the store this weekend when you check out the PHCC event! Or if you wanted to stop by the store, give yourself a little extra time to go across the street! 🎄💚❤💚

Let's start a trend. This year I have been wishing people a "Thankful" Thanksgiving. What are you thankful for? Can you name 5 things or people or places or actions or ?

I am thankful for:

1. The love and support from family - Michael, Barbara & Pops, Chris Vachon,, Gary, Amanda, Brian, Linda Sibik, Lori, Todd Bullock, Aimee, Barbara, Julie Bullock, . . . and more

2. Amazing friends that have become family - Judi Dutko, Elizabeth, Lynn, Lynn, Carol, Carol, Carol Lachance, John, Renee, Christine, Jessica, Heather, Zita, Kim, Keith, Jane, Staci, Tina, Lucy, Bev, Jeannette and so many more

3. Coming from a family of small business owners and supporting others' small business - J. Stolar Insurance Agency, Inc., Talk of the Town, George's Astronaut Pizza House, Lost & Found Mercantile, Changes Hair Design, Empanadas Argentinas. Three Rivers., IRide Equestrian Lifestyle

4. My new location/home, my amazing, kind, considerate, supportive customers, my social media followers, my neighbors like Stella, Palmer Historical and Cultural Center, Kim's Hair Care, Burgundy Brook Café, MB'S Tastes of the Sea

5. Non profits like Rays of Hope - Rays of Hope - Walk & Run Toward the Cure of Breast Cancer, Palmer Domestic Violence Task Force, HomeFront Equestrians

6. I'll throw in one more - people like @Andrea Baumann from Go Independent, Shop Small (Anywhere USA) who tirelessly supports, cheerleads, inspires small businesses regardless of their location. Susan Budge, Cofounder of Kiwi Lane Designs, for her inspiration, drive, & innovation. I have never met either one of them in person, but I am thankful for their vibe and spirit.

No. 2
Memorial Day Commemorative Presentation
Presented: May 29, 2016
Memorial Day Greetings,

As we are only able to gather in minimum numbers and our traditional Memorial Day celebrations have been for the most part canceled this year, we are left with our own personal ways to honor and remember the many individuals and families who have made the ultimate sacrifice for their country and for peace and freedom.

In the past PHCC had provided a special Memorial Day presentation. Hopefully watching the Memorial Day presentation from 2016 that we have suggested for your viewing today (see below) will provide you with the commemorative spirit to honor those brave men and women who have served in our armed forces. In the years following 911 we have added the first responders to those we remember and honor. This year we add again another group of brave souls, those who have served on the front lines of helping others fight the COVID19 pandemic. We will get through this, but as in military conflicts there are casualties and we have experienced many during the pandemic and we remember all of those who have lost their lives and they and their families remain in our thoughts.

The PHCC Board of Directors extends their best wishes to all of you and your families for a safe and meaningful Memorial Day.

How to view this presentation:

We have been receiving donations in recent weeks, and we would like to express our great appreciation to all those who have been so gracious and generous in supporting PHCC during these times in particular, but also throughout the years. Thank you!

We hope you enjoy!
