Spring forward, fall back! After you have enjoyed some of the activities of Saturday, Nov. 3, and you get ready to hit the hay, set your timepieces back one hour. While you are at it, check the batteries in your smoke alarms.

Saturday, Nov. 3 will be a very busy day. Members of the Lanark Village Golf Club will have a full breakfast ready for you at Chillas Hall. Starting at 8 a.m., there will be pancakes/French toast, bacon, eggs, juice and coffee. Your donation of $5 will get you started. Yum, yum! The 49th annual Florida Seafood Festival also will be in full swing Saturday.

Big yard sale! Members of the Ladies Guild of Sacred Heart Church, 2653 U.S. 98, Lanark Village, will have their annual yard sale Saturday, Nov. 3. The sale starts at 8 a.m. Coffee and goodies to get you started, and brats and hot dogs for lunch, with all the toppings, and thousands of items for sale, and 50/50 drawing. Come and look around, there’s bound to be something you simply can’t live without.

Meanwhile, down at C-Quarters Marina in beautiful downtown Carrabelle, Thomas Lee and crew will be cooking Boston butts. A donation of $20 each is required, and will help support the many charities of the American Legion. They will be ready to go at 8 a.m. Take one home and enjoy!

During the week, at Camp Gordon Johnston American Legion Post 82, we have Wednesday night soup-and-sandwich 5 to 7 p.m. Donation of $5 is required. Friday night is hamburger-and-chips from 5 to 7 p.m. Donation $6, and Sunday is pizza, 5 to 7 p.m. By the slice $1, full pizza eat-in $8 and pizza to go, $10. See ya there!

Unless I mention “members only,” all events and fundraisers are open to everyone.

Two things that drivers never use are the horn, and the directional signals. Let’s be more courteous out there!

Be kind to one another, check on the sick and house bound – and keep smiling. You may not feel any better but everyone else will wonder what you’re up to.

Until next time, God bless America, our troops, the poor, homeless and the hungry.
