November 5 - Daylight Saving Time ends at 2:00 AM and we finally get our hour back.

November 8 - Wolf Cider Jam 5 at Angry Orchard in Walden. Hopefully you can join us from 4p to 7p for delicious cider and music by the West Band's Benny Havens Band. Admission is free and Angry orchard has free sampling until 5:30p. Food by 3 Mamas and Mike along with Cider is available for purchase.

November 9 - The Holiday Edition of What Women Want at the Poughkeepsie Grand Hotel is you chance to gather up your girls friends for a night of fun and shopping that focuses on what you want. The event is free but we encourage you to upgrade to the Jonna Spilbor Law VIP Experience to really make it a special girls night out.

Nov 17 thru 19 - The Annual Jam the Van at ShopRite in Kingston. We are hoping you can make a donation to our annual food drive in time for the holidays.

November 23 - Thanksgiving the day we get to enjoy family, friends and food. It is also a great day to sit on the couch catch the parade and some football.

November 24 - Black Friday if you are a bargain hunter we will count on you to kick off the shopping season and help the holiday bottom line.

November 25 - Small Business Saturday is your chance to head to your favorite locally owned stores to support them with your holiday shopping dollar. This is a great time to pick up local gifts for the people on your holiday gift list.

November 26 - Giving Sunday is set aside for all of us to remember that "paying it forward" makes the holiday season more special. This time of year there are so many way to give back. This is the lesser know days that follow Thanksgiving, but I like to think it is the most important.

November 27 - Cyber Monday is set aside for shopping online while your boss thinks you are working. Of course now a days a lot of shopping is done online all year round but I am sure the online vendors will have set up great incentives to wait and shop on the Monday after Thanksgiving.
