October 30, 2018 - Orange County will commemorate Veterans Day with a ceremony at the new Memorial site located near Seymour Center/Southern Human Services in Chapel Hill. The event will take place at 11AM on Monday, November 12, 2018. Veterans Day is marked each year on November 11th, the anniversary of the signing of the armistice (cease-fire) that ended that war. The armistice was signed in 1918 and President Woodrow Wilson first began the tradition of it as a day of American national remembrance in November 1919. In 1938 it became an official national holiday and in 1954, it became known as Veterans Day instead of Armistice Day.

The Holidays Shine Brighter in the San Juan Islands

Tree lightings, artisan fairs, and an Island Nutcracker bring good cheer to the San Juan Holiday Season

Friday Harbor, WA… Son of a nutcracker! Take Buddy the Elf’s advice this holiday season, and don’t be a cotton-headed ninny-muggins. Instead, escape the mainland’s mad rush and discover island time with a winter forest hike or walk on a stormy beach, a great meal fireside, and holiday spirit with friends new and old. Small-town traditions, locals greeting each other on the street, and time to reflect on what really matters; a San Juan Islands holiday will make smiling your favorite, too.
