Black Friday used to be a fun event where “we started before sun up and we were out way past sundown shopping and eating out/dining.” We hear something along this line from cousins, friends, sisters, moms and dads, husbands and wives, even brothers, and they all shopped locally. We now hear over and over that they have not done that since Black Friday sales started on Thanksgiving Day and for too many stores sales started/start before Thanksgiving. We asked if they shop early with family and friends? “Nah! We find that we buy less and shop more online. Black Friday is not as much fun.” Traverse Bay Lifestyles is cheering for all of our local stores and pray the real Black Friday returns for our communities (all stores included) and is not Black Tue/Wed/Thanksgiving/whatever! Hoping that family and friends are making plans for the day after Thanksgiving and on Thanksgiving Day they are feeling grateful.

PART-TIME SALESPERSONS: We are looking for someone who lives in Antrim County and another person who lives in Leelanau and/or Benzie County who truly enjoys meeting people and wishes to add to their household income. We have only 4 deadlines per year, so there are only 4x2 weeks per year where you may not have flexibility in your schedule, but even these weeks may be flexible with exceptional planning. Email me at [email protected] (I do not have Facebook Messenger-I have tried to get it since I received my replacement cell-there is some glitch.) PLEASE SHARE WITH YOUR NON-FB USER FRIENDS WHO MAY BE INTERESTED in adding to their household income working part-time. Thank you sincerely.

We changed our name in May 2019 and Facebook is apparently still not allowing us to correct it on our page to read Traverse Bay Lifestyles.
Any suggestions before we quit trying and start a new page?
This problem started when Apple sent a replacement phone that was under warranty. Facebook and Instagram did not transfer to the new phone and we had forgot the password. We did reset it, but it no longer sees us as the administrator of the page.

He was a people person and will be missed my his many clients and friends too. Tom was always volunteering and ready for a friendly conversation. Please pray for his wife of 45 years, Debbie; his 2 sons Geoffrey and Christopher; and his 4 grandchildren. Tom, we miss you; we’ll have another conversation one day.

Benzie County Central Schools

Good job.

Benzie County Central Schools will be closed tomorrow, Wednesday, January 30th, due to dangerous wind chills, the ongoing winter storm warning, and generally hazardous conditions all around. All athletic events, practices, and activities will be cancelled as well.
Please enjoy your school closing message with vocals and dancing by our very own superintendent, Matthew Olson. Filmed on location by Catina Crossman.
Be safe, stay warm, and if all else fails….sing!

Don’t miss the Fall Fashion Section in Traverse Bay Family Lifestyle this season. Thank you Annie Hill from Cherry Hill Boutique and Jacob and Amelia from Liana’s for modeling your beautiful cozy Fall Fashions. Clearly wonderful for a morning like this heading to work and school and dinner later this evening. Both stores are located downtown Traverse City.
Where can I obtain copies of the Fall 2018 issue of the Traverse Bay Family Lifestyles. I reside in Traverse City
Please call me - the dates you have for our Frankfort August Art Fair are incorrect. Should be August 17, 4pm - 8pm and August 18, 10am - 4pm - You have the event listed as August 14 and 15. 231-352-7251
Love looking at the calendar of events in every quarterly issue of Traverse Bay Family Lifestyles. It’s easy to plan ahead in anticipation of family or friends visiting too. This saves us a lot of time and too many clicks on our cell phones to see what is going on in the whole five county area. Also, you have to try this recipe from Chef Andy Viren at Taproot Cider House in TC. It’s not difficult and we absolutely loved it. We are taking friends there this weekend.
Who can I get in touch with to find out about advertising costs?
In the Fall quarterly issue on page 16 - Acme Fall Festival. We'll be there tomorrow.
