SEE THE 2013 “HOLIDAY LIGHTING” Winners in Quail Valley: For many years neighbors have worked hard to come together with music and dancing lights; some repeats of previous years. Some seek to be creative and this inspires other residents to “step out” and join the fun of sharing the holidays.
It can be entire blocks showing off Christmas Cards that are tied together by lights. The kiddos are fascinated with displays for “dial-your-car radio to favorite Christmas tunes which synchronizes dancing lights.
The Quail Valley Garden Club spends hours to recognize the yards & homes that they believe are the “Best of the Best” each year. Go to the following web site: http://traction.typepad.com/qvgc/2013/12/2013-holiday-lights-winners.html to learn who the winners are for 2013.
DON’T BE SHY: One list I received offers a FREE cup of coffee OR you could qualify for up to 50% off items in their place of business if you are at least age 50 and up. Other discounts are for people who are over 55 or over 60 or over 62 or over 65 years of age.
This particular list had: RESTAURANTS (37) * RETAIL & APPAREL (17) * GROCERY (16) * TRAVEL (10) * CAR RENTAL (25) * ACTIVITIES & ENTERTAINMENT (8) * CELL PHONE DISCOUNTS (3) * AND MISCELLANEOUS (2).
BUT REMEMBER……YOU must ASK for a discount UP FRONT…because they won’t OFFER you one. Just try asking at all the companies you do business with. It could be one NOT on the “LIST” but because you asked, the manager/owner just “might” give you one. It doesn’t hurt to try!
