Hello everyone, and happy Monday! I am writing this from a couch in freezing Connecticut, so I currently know what it’s like to wish you were in St. John! Ha! I went to a wedding in New Haven yesterday, and it was absolutely beautiful! I head back to the island later this week. Warm weather, soon come!
There are a few island events happening soon that I wanted to tell you about. Airfare has gotten a bit cheaper, so maybe you can come and visit for one of them! Here we go…
Thanksgiving Turkey Trot
Looking to burn off some calories before your Thanksgiving feast? Well, you’re in luck because there is going to be a quick little St. John Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving morning. Peter Alter, the man who created 8 Tuff Miles, is holding a three-mile race for adults and a one-mile race for children on Thursday, November 23rd at 7:30 a.m. Participants should meet at the Annaberg parking lot prior to race time. The race is being held to support the Animal Care Center. The entry fee is one can of cat or dog food. Dalton and I will be there to support the dogs and cats, and I hope you will be too!
The “Prom” All Island Holiday Party
This is the one day of the year that you will actually see us ladies in heels on St. John! The 28th annual All Island Holiday Party, also known as The Prom, is scheduled for Saturday, December 16th. The party is being hosted by Michael and Barbie Barry, owners of Sun Dog Cafe. This is a great time and not to be missed!
The Animal Care Center’s Annual Gala
As the newest Board Member for the Animal Care Center, I am excited to share that our annual gala is happening on Saturday, January 27th at The Last Resort villa in Chocolate Hole. This is an amazing event at an amazing villa for an even more amazing cause! I hope you all can come! Details on tickets and raffle sales soon come…
And speaking of the Animal Care Center, they have brand new merchandise for sale! Please check it out and consider supporting our little fur babies! Hoodies are $40, rashguards are $30, and kids t-shirts are $20. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to purchase. (Prices do not include shipping.)
And there you have it, folks. A few more reasons to come and visit us! Have a great day everyone! I hope to see you soon!
