Every year, as Thanksgiving approaches, as we stop to count our own blessings, the Craig Bay Fall Food Drive Committee asks you to remember those less fortunate. Going grocery shopping for a special family dinner? Then please pick up a few extra items to donate to our food drive. You know the drill. And, of course, we hope that you will continue to do that. But this year is different for many [...]

  CHOICES I am so very glad that Ross and I chose to purchase a home here in beautiful Craig Bay.

Choices about one’s education, job, partners, moving/not moving, travelling/not travelling to the simple choices [...]

Let’s talk turkey about the Food Drive  “I’m so hungry I could eat a horse!” “What’s for dinner? I’m starving!” These common expressions are, of course, said tongue-in-cheek. Few of us know what it’s like to go hungry for a sustained period, let alone to starve. And most of us rarely miss a meal, unless we’re trying to lose a few pounds due to all the good food we’ve already enjoyed. [...]
