From the Editor (November 2017)

by Ammie Bryant, Editor

Are you ready for the holidays? It’s hard to believe that another year has nearly passed as we enter the final two months of 2017.

This November we are excited to see what the holiday season will bring to our hometown of Stillwater. While I know many were disappointed at the news that the Polar Express would not be returning this year, our friends at Visit Stillwater have really stepped up and rallied the troops, so to speak, to bring a Winter Wonderland to Downtown Stillwater’s Block 34. Be sure to check out their article this month to learn more about the planned events.

The holidays are always a great time to really appreciate what being involved in a community like Stillwater means.The art and culture scene is vibrant with exhibits and performances and organizations like the Stillwater Junior Service League shine as they fulfill their missions to help those in need. In this issue we try to capture a bit of that holiday spirit and showcase just a taste of what makes us thankful to live in this caring community we call Stillwater.

Oh and be sure to check out our recipe this month. Karyl Henry shares a delicious holiday inspired Roasted Cornish Game Hen–the perfect meal for anyone looking for the taste of a Thanksgiving feast without the gluttony of overindulgence. Truly a great option for those who may not be making a large meal to feed the visiting hoards but don’t want to miss out on a delicious holiday meal.

Happy Thanksgiving! May this holiday season be one filled with peace and joy.
