Earlier Than The Bird 'Earlier than the Bird' shoppers get head start on Nov. 17

The early bird may get the worm, but Earlier than the Bird shoppers will find treats, swag and savings on Saturday Nov. 17 in downtown Boyne City. Begun several years ago as a way to give holiday shoppers a preview of local goods, the event is now in its third year. “It’s a crazy idea getting shoppers outdoors in November in their pajamas, but it’s been a lot of fun,” said Boyne Area Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Jim Baumann. “There’s good bargains every year because the merchants have really gotten behind it—last year we had more than 30 stores and restaurants that participated.” Baumann said most shoppers hit the “big box” stores on Black Friday, and Earlier than the Bird gives local shops an opportunity to showcase their unique wares. “We call it ‘Earlier than the Bird’ because it’s before Thanksgiving and what we’re really trying to do is encourage people to shop local,” he said. “Almost all the local participating stores will have breakfast snacks like sweet rolls, doughnuts and coffee.” Baumann added, “People get a kick out of it—it’s kind of funny seeing people who don’t know what’s going on and wondering why all these people are walking around in their pajamas.” The event is scheduled between 7 a.m. and 11 a.m. Shoppers are encouraged to first visit the Boyne Area Chamber of Commerce office at 28 South Lake St. to pick up a map and list of vendors and, if you are wearing your pajamas, you will get this year’s version of the Earlier than the Bird coffee mug. Sweatpants and workout clothes are not counted as PAGE 4

pajamas. Baumann said the chamber is currently in the process of compiling its list of participating businesses and their specials. Some stores start off with major discounts and gradually decrease the percentage as the hours go by—all the more reason to get into downtown Boyne City by 7 a.m. “We hope to see a lot of people shopping downtown. And, we’re hoping for decent weather ... which we’ve actually had for the last few years,” Baumann said. This event is co-sponsored by Boyne City Main Street and the Boyne Area Chamber of Commerce. Don’t forget to pick up your Boyne Holiday Guide while you’re at the chamber during Earlier than the Bird. This year’s guide is bigger and better than ever, and includes all the information and holiday fun you need to get you from Turkey Day to Christmas Day.

Thanksgiving Feeding the spirit Feeding the body Thanksgiving brings something extra special to Boyne City this year as locals work to make sure e v e r y o n e’s holiday is packed full of Joy. The Boyne Valley Catholic Community will celebrate their Thanksgiving Mass on the Tuesday preceding Thanksgiving Day at 6:30 p.m., and the focus will be on more than the people in the building. “We take up a collection of non-perishable food items every year to help our community,” said Pastoral Associate Patty Furtaw. The collection they take typically includes paper goods, diapers and non-perishable food items—all of which will be donated to local food pantries. “We’ve been doing it a long time,” said Parish Secretary Sue Dzwik. “It’s a good community builder,” she added. The Boyne Valley Catholic Community is made up of St. Matthew Church in Boyne City, St. Augustine Church in Boyne Falls, and St. John Nepomucene in Praga, which is near East Jordan. Anyone interested in participating is welcome to attend their Thanksgiving Mass on Tuesday, Nov. 20 at 6:30 p.m. or call the office at (231) 5827718.

The Eagles are known for great things. They are known for fun evenings of beer and popcorn, huge fundraisers to help kick cancer, and the image of Gail Farley as the infamous tooth fairy. While Thanksgiving may not seem synonymous with Eagles, their annual Thanksgiving dinner has become a mainstay and a great service to the Boyne City community, and that sense of community can be felt stronger than ever. The traditional turkey dinner, complete with sides, coffee and dessert is free of charge and is available on Thanksgiving Day at the Boyne City Fraternal Order of Eagles located at 106 River St. in Boyne City. The dinner isn’t just there for those in financial hard times, it’s meant for anyone who wants to be with friends and family. “We’re all friends here, and this is for everybody,” said Gail Farley. They also stress that transportation should not be an issue, and that they have volunteers to help secure rides as well. Anyone interested is encouraged to call the Eagles at (231) 582-6904. The dinner will be held from noon until 2 p.m. Donations of food are gladly accepted.

Holiday Memories GLENDA CRANE My mom treated Christmas as a very special time of year. The house smelled of goodies, the tree was decorated with a touch of class and many friends and family visited. It's no wonder the first of the year was a little let down, although we did need time to recuperate and relax the face muscles that hurt from all the laughing. DONNIE TOWNS My favorite holiday memory would have to be December 2008. I made it home from Iraq on the 22nd and got to enjoy the holiday with my family at home.

CAROL SHEPHERD We didn't have a lot of money when I was growing up but my parents always made Christmas special. One Christmas stands out for me because of the extra care my mom took to ensure my sister Lisa and I had the best one ever ... for a kid anyway. When we crept down the stairs that morning, "Santa" had left Lisa and me a Malibu Barbie dollhouse, a red Barbie convertible car and both of us our own Barbie doll. What was so special about it, though, was that my mom knitted and sewed a multitude of outfits for the dolls and crafted a multitude of items for the dollhouse. For instance, the house came with a record player. My mom glued the pictures of album covers to a piece of cardboard and then cut them all out so, we had a whole stack of albums to go with the record player. The fact that she took the time to transform something ordinary into something unique & extraordinary will always be a treasured memory.


Holiday Memories JOYCE ZAVESKY Mom and dad would take us to Grandma's house for Christmas Eve. She had those wonderful bubble lights that would just fascinate me. I wondered how they always boiled and didn't explode! All the family would be there, aunts and uncles and all the cousins. We each had a gift from Santa. Never wondered how the gift got there before he delivered ours to the house. After the party at Grandma and Grandpa's we would drive home always looking up in the sky to see if we could see Santa and his reindeer. We always spotted Rudoph's red nose way, way up there making his way to our house and in the morning there were all of our gifts?

JERRY DOUGLAS My birthday is on Christmas and when I was a very young child (4 or 5 years old) I asked my Mom at my sister's birthday party why other kids had birthdays but not me. It broke my Mom's heart so she made me this really cool cake that year that was a train with peppermint wheels. I remember it to this day. She had six other kids but still found time to make me feel special. CHASE PETROELJE Every year, waking up to a slight chill in the air, meeting my family by the Christmas Tree and spending the entire day together listening to Christmas music and eating great food. (Chase is pictured with his parents.)

Twas the Night Before Christmas

Story by Clement C. Moore Art by Jessie Willcox Smith Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse; The stockings were hung by the chimney with care In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there; The children were nestled all snug in their beds, While visions of sugarplums danced in their heads; And mamma in her kerchief, and I in my cap, Had just settled our brains for

a long winter’s nap, When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter, I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.

Away to the window I flew like a flash, Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash. The moon on the breast of the newfallen snow, Gave the lustre of mid-

day to objects below, When, what to my wondering eyes should appear, But a miniature sleigh, and eight tiny reindeer, With a little old driver, so lively and quick, I knew in a moment it must be St. Nick. More rapid than eagles his coursers they came, And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name: Now, Dasher! now, Dancer! now, Prancer and Vixen! On, Comet! on, Cupid! on, Donder and Blitzen! To the top of the porch! To the top of the wall! Now dash away! Dash away! Dash away all!” As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly, When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky; So up to the housetop the coursers they flew, With the sleigh full of Toys, and St. Nicholas too. And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof, The prancing and pawing of each little hoof. As I drew in my head, and was turning around, Down the chimney St. Nicholas came with a bound. He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot, And his clothes were

He had a broad face and a little round belly, That shook when he laughed, like a bowlful of jelly. He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf, And I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself; A wink of his eye and a twist of his head, Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread;

all tarnished with ashes and soot; A bundle of Toys he had flung on his back, And he looked like a peddler just opening his pack. His eyes—how they twinkled! his dimples how merry! His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry! His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow, And the beard of his chin

was as white as the snow; The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth, And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath;

He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work, And filled all the stockings; then turned with a jerk, And laying his finger aside of his nose, And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose; He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle, And away they all flew like the down of a thistle. But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight, “Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night.”

Holiday Open Houses & Santa Parade Santa at the Gazebo

Holiday Open Houses & Santa Parade set for Friday Nov. 23

The Holiday Open House & Santa Parade, held the Friday after Thanksgiving, is a tradition in Boyne City and that tradition continues this year. To make it a true community celebration of the season, everyone is invited to participate—from businesses and organizations with floats, to children dressed in their holiday finest, to businesses offering great shopping, refreshments and hospitality. The goal is to fill Boyne City's downtown with all the sounds, sights, and smells of the Christmas season. The parade begins at 6 p.m. and the evening's special guest is the Jolly Old Man from the North. Santa will arrive on his sleigh, joined by some of his elves, and some reindeer8

The parade starts at 6 p.m. and lineup is at 5:30 on East Main Street between East and Lake Streets. The parade route will follow Lake Street to Water Street through the heart of downtown Boyne City. After the parade, there will be hay rides, and Santa will meet with children at the gazebo in Old City Park at the corner of River and Park Streets. Refreshments will be served to all of Santa's guests.

Holiday Memories MARY SCHAFER With six kids and a stay-at-home mom in the ‘50s we never had a lot but we had what we needed and we never felt poor by any means. Mom & Dad always made our Christmases very special for all of us. On Christmas Eve we had a really nice family dinner together with our Grandma and then we got to open our presents from Mom & Dad and Grandma and it was always really great. We all would trek up to bed exhausted and mom would awaken us in time to get up and go to Midnight Mass together with Grandma. After Mass we would come home and have fresh hot homemade cinnamon rolls that mom & Grandma had made for us, and we got to have orange juice with them! After we put out cookies & milk for Santa and had a good sleep in our new pj's that we always got, all of us kids had to wait in anticipation at the top of the stairs until all 6 kids were awake & lined up in birth order and mom would film us with the movie camera as we came downstairs to see what Santa had brought for us! At the time it seemed so painful to go through this ritual each and every Christmas. Now that us kids are much older our new happy memories are to reminisce with laughter at all of the hoopla Mom, Dad & Grandma put us through every year and remember it all with much love in our hearts for the gift of our memories. Dad & Grandma are gone now & mom is elderly and not in the best of health but our movies have been put on a disc and we all have the pleasure of having our youth, our family together having fun & teasing each other and the excitement of it all forever in our hearts and as a keepsake for us to watch repeatedly whenever we feel nostalgic. I like to watch my disc now at the holiday times and it brings me right back to my youth and the house we grew up in. I can almost smell those cinnamon rolls every time I watch it! I'm a pretty lucky girl to have my favorite holiday memories of my youth be my favorite holiday memories of my adulthood. Thanks to some pretty amazing parents and the best Grandma ever.

Small Business Saturday It may be hard to resist the national chains when they go to seemingly insane lengths with amazing deals on hot holiday items to entice you out on JIM BAUMANN Black Friday— but, smaller and independently owned shops are hoping their superior customer service and wide array of one-of-a-kind gifts will make you consider doing some of your holiday shopping locally during the third annual Small Business Saturday on Nov. 24. Begun in a few cities in 2010 by American Express as a way to help kickstart local economies during the height of the recession, the event has become popular

in hundreds of cities with last year’s event seeing more than 100 million shoppers supporting many of America’s unique small businesses. “Ninety-nine percent of the businesses in Boyne City are small independent businesses,” said Boyne Area Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Jim Baumman. “When you support Small Business Saturday you are supporting your neighbors, local employment and a stronger community.” In addition to great specials at local stores, American Express gives its members a $25 credit when they purchase $25 or more with their American Express Card.

The effects of Small Business Saturday have been tangible—participating retailers reported nearly 30 percent increases in sales between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, according to American Express. American Express is also helping businesses market their Small Business Saturday involvement with a digital toolkit that includes easyto-use sample text for tweets, blogs, Facebook and other advertising help.

Christmas Sing-Along Favorites The tradition of singing Christmas Carols dates back thousands of years. Each December people around the world go doorto-door singing holiday favorites. It is customary for carolers to sing the first verse of a different song at each house they visit. Carolers are sometimes thanked with hot chocolate and baked goods. Below we have provided the first few lines of some of history’s most popular carols.

Deck The Halls

Deck the halls with boughs of holly Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la 'Tis the season to be jolly Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la Don we now our gay apparel Fa-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la Troll the ancient Yule-tide carol Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

Up on the Housetop

Up on the housetop reindeer pause Out jumps good old Santa Claus; Down through the chimney with lots of toys; All for the little ones, Christmas joys Ho, ho, ho, who wouldn’t go? Ho, ho, ho, who wouldn’t go? Up on the housetop, click, click, click; Down through the chimney with good Saint Nick.

Silent Night

Silent night! Holy night! All is calm, all is bright, Round yon Virgin Mother and Child Holy Infant, so tender and mild Sleep in heavenly peace, Sleep in heavenly peace

O Christmas Tree

O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree! Thy leaves are so unchanging; O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree! Thy leaves are so unchanging; Not only green when summer's here, But also when 'tis cold and drear. O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree! Thy leaves are so unchanging!

We Wish You A Merry Christmas

We wish you a merry Christmas We wish you a merry Christmas We wish you a merry Christmas And a happy New Year. We all know that Santa’s coming We all know that Santa’s coming We all know that Santa’s coming And soon will be here. Good tidings we bring To you and your kin We wish you a merry Christmas And a happy New Year

Here We Come A Wassailing Herald Angels Sing

Hark! the herald angels sing, Glory to the newborn King! Peace on earth, and mercy mild, God and sinners reconciled. Joyful, all ye nations, rise, Join the triumph of the skies; With th' angelic host proclaim, Christ is born in Bethlehem. Hark! the herald angels sing, Glory to the newborn King!

The First Noel

The First Noel, the Angels did say Was to certain poor shepherds in fields as they lay In fields where they lay keeping their sheep; On a cold winter's night that was so deep. Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel Born is the King of Israel!

O Come, All Ye Faithful God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen

O come, all ye faithful, Joyful and triumphant, O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem. Come and behold Him, Born the King of Angels! O come, let us adore Him, O come, let us adore Him, O come, let us adore Him, Christ the Lord

Joy to the World

Joy to the world! The Lord is come: let earth receive her King! Let every heart prepare him room and heaven and nature sing and heaven and nature sing, and heaven and heaven and nature sing

God rest you merry, gentlemen, Let nothing you dismay, Remember Christ our Savior Was born on Christmas day, To save us all from Satan's pow'r When we were gone astray; O tidings of comfort and joy, Comfort and joy, O tidings of comfort and joy.

Away In The Manger

Away in a manger, no crib for a bed, The little Lord Jesus laid down his sweet head. The stars in the sky looked down where he lay, The little Lord Jesus asleep in the hay

Nothing says “Merry Christmas!” like a fresh batch of homemade cookies. You’ll find all of your Holiday Baking supplies at your Friendly Neighborhood Glen’s Market. PAGE 23
