Do some good locally

Do you have a good coat that no longer fits you, clashes with your wardrobe or for some other reason you no longer use? Put it to good use here locally.

The DNJ newspaper is reporting on a local effort to help people get prepared for colder weather by making sure they have good cold weather clothing...and you can help them.

Time to be counted

From the town of Smyrna. They are making a big push this week to get the last remaining people counted. 

The next phase of our Special Census begins this week - some of our fire fighters will go door-to-door to gather Census information (first/last names and address only). One census entry will win a 55" LED HDTV! We're Counting on You!

Shop local

I try to keep This is Smyrna from looking like a spam website or an ad driven site. There are enough of them, so let them sell ads. I do feel it is within those rules that I can share the Smyrna Independent Merchants Association website and the fact that they have an newsletter that says "Sign up to receive our monthly newsletter with upcoming events and local happenings.". Sounds good, and a great way to shop locally.

They also have a page of coupons for the thrifty shoppers amongst the readers here.

Smyrna Christmas Parade

The Christmas parade is this weekend. So bundle up and go have fun!

The Smyrna Christmas Parade is this Sunday! During this season of giving, we're asking those in the parade and those watching along the parade route to consider bringing some type of non-perishable food/personal item(s) to donate to the Smyrna/Lavergne Food Bank! We'll have a truck parked at the entry where the floats, etc check in. We'll also have volunteers pushing shopping carts along the parade route to collect items from the parade watchers!
