Hi all! This is a small sampling of events this week, Nov. 18th - 24th, Monday through Saturday.

Have a great holiday week.

 I look forward to this holiday week all year long. I celebrate Thanksgiving this year with even more gusto, knowing that I have a lot to be grateful for.

Some of my family and friends on Facebook mention that they are thankful for many things this month too. This week I am especially thankful for living in an area that celebrates diversity, the arts, education, and much more. And I am thankful for all of my wonderful family and friends.

Many more events pages to peruse are listed on my new page, Bowling Green Event Links, at the top of this blog.
