Happy November and Happy Thanksgiving!


Happy November!  Hope you are enjoying the slightly cooler weather.  This month we feature Trustbridge, formerly Hospice, which is a great place to donate your gently used goods and even used vehicles.  Read the “AW Spotlight” story. 

This month we also are happy to let you know about the Wellington Film Festival, happening November 5, 6 & 7 and November 12, 13 & 14.  I interviewed Film Festival Director Jean Michel Millien to glean some of the highlights of the festival.  See “Cultural Corner.”

Our AW Networking Mixer continues the 2nd Thursday of each month, so save the date for November 11th at 6:30pm at Village Music.  Come for the mixer, stay for the jazz (by the Wellington Jazz Cats).

A couple of holiday traditions are coming up around Wellington – WinterFest featuring Vanilla Ice on December 10th and the Annual Wellington Holiday Parade on December 12th.  Save the dates!

Our Health & Fitness expert Cheryl Alker gives some video tips on how to strengthen your back muscles.  All you need is an exercise ball and perhaps a yoga mat to partake in this.

Briana D’Andrea, our Mommy Moments writer, introduces a yummy 4-ingredient pasta dish that she says is “good for the soul.”  Plus the whole family loves it! 

Ever wondered which breeds of dogs are better for our South Florida climate and for withstanding the summer hear?  Paws-itive Press writer Julie Schrager gives us the rundown of different dog breeds. 

Have you started looking for holiday gifts yet?  Well, according to the news and to shipping delays this season, it’s definitely time to start!  Our travel writer Terri Marshall provides some great gift ideas for travelers and adventures (coming soon). 

Thanks for being a part of AroundWellington! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!
