Need something to browse while you digest turkey and mashed potatoes? Check out the OCS Christmas Ornament Fundraiser and mark your calendars for the SWA Art Festival on December 2nd with Spirit Nights in Holly Springs that same evening.

If you find the energy to start decorating this week after all that cooking and eating, then we would love any old (still working) twinkle lights you might find for our upcoming Fashion Show.
