Skate & Feed
If you plan on visiting the ConAgra Foods ice skating rink after its opening on December 12, bring along some non-perishable food items to add to the donation boxes there. Food donations go to Foodbank for the Heartland. Monetary donations are accepted too. http://www.holidaylightsfestival.org/conagra-foods-ice-rink/
Eat & Give
While you’re in the giving mood after ice skating, head to Brownie’s Watering Hole in Papillion for some good bar food. Bring new, unwrapped toys with you when you visit and they’ll be donated to Cheryl’s Stockings, a nonprofit organization that collects toys for underprivileged kids. https://www.facebook.com/BrowniesWateringHole
Welcome to Eggnog Latte Season
Locally-owned Scooter’s Coffee has decided to officially declare it Eggnog Latte season starting December 1. Those who wait all year for Scooter’s signature Pumpkin Pie Smoothie season may not be ready to give up just yet, but coffee fans who love eggnog are probably ecstatic. http://www.scooterscoffee.com/
How Does Your Garden Grow?
The City of La Vista recently announced plans to make some community garden plots available to residents within three different parks. There’s a small fee for the plot’s “rental,” but it’s a great option for La Vista folks who want to have a small garden but don’t have their own land from which to grow. http://www.cityoflavista.org/index.aspx?NID=1509
