Veterans Day Freebies for 2017

Happy Veterans Day to all veterans, active duty and retired military personnel as well as reservist, National Guard, and the Coast Guard. Thank you for your sacrifice.
Veterans Day honors the men and women who served in the armed forces and is usually observed on November 11. Some businesses have offers and celebrations as early as November 10 or as late as November 14. Veterans, active duty personnel, National Guard, reserve, and coast guard members are cordially invited to attend. You are privileged to free meals, free lodging, special events, and so much more. Thus, I have highlighted some of the best deals in the Triangle area of North Carolina. Being an Army veteran, I like to get updates on all the great deals and promotions available in my area. Since a fellow veteran first brought these great deals and promotions to my attention, I thought it would be fair to share. Click on the link below for more information.
Free meals and free lodging is not enough for veterans who served in wartime. But, it is a start and it does say something about how we as Americans feel in regard to the suffering some of these veterans endured. Doing something, even the smallest thing to show appreciation means so very much! God Bless everyone and their families!
V e t e r a n s D a y C e l e b r a t i o n s
Served in the armed forces?
Finally, you get to reap the rewards and rejoice.
Free meals, free admission, and free stay in select rooms.
Year round discounts and parades to celebrate will honor all very soon.
Celebrations are usually held on November 11.
Being a federal holiday, an extra day off is like heaven.
No matter how long or how short you served.
Veterans Day Celebrations are inevitable but clearly deserved.

Some Interesting Facts about CSA's.

What is a CSA? CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. CSA may also be referred to as a Farm Share. A Farm Share is a contract between a farmer and private individuals. This is where the farmer sells shares at the beginning of the planting season, which helps with initial costs. The farmer then delivers “shares” to individuals or group drop-off points throughout the spring, summer, and fall.
Advantages for consumers are eating high quality, fresh food grown locally by regional farmers; getting exposure to new vegetables and new ways of cooking; visiting the farm at least once per season; and developing a relationship with the farmer who grows the food.
Advantages for farmers are receiving payment early in the season; spending time marketing the food early in the year; and getting the opportunity to get to know community members.
