Animal Adoption: The "Purr"fect Holiday Gift

RICHMOND COUNTY – Every year across the globe little boys and girls answer the age old question, “what would you like for Christmas this year?” with a simple exclamation of “a puppy!” or “a kitten!”

HAMLET – In recent years, the country’s public opinion and relationship with law enforcement professionals has shifted, and not in a positive direction, resulting in violence, riots, and lines of allegiance being drawn.

RICHMOND COUNTY – The month of December has just begun, and the Christmas season in Richmond County is already well underway.  Tremendous trees have been lit, carols have been sung, and Santa has already made a stop by Leath Memorial Library. 

PINEHURST – “Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree, how lovely are thy branches.”

Thousands of branches have been transformed into lovely masterpieces in preparation for the Sandhills Children’s Center’s 21st Annual Festival of Trees.

ROCKINGHAM – Santa Clause has made his first of many stops around Richmond County this holiday season.

RICHMOND COUNTY – On the 12th Day of Chamber the Richmond County Chamber of Commerce gave to me: 12 member businesses, 11 gift certificates, 10 prize packages, nine amazing discounts, eight funny videos, seven witty captions, six new gift ideas, five local celebrities, four door busters, three board members, two elected officials and one event that locals don’t want to miss out on.

ROCKINGHAM – It's no secret that football is king in Richmond County.  Just taking a drive past Raider Stadium on a fall Friday night will give you needed proof of that.

ROCKINGHAM – What do a magician, a speed painter, a beach band and a native American story teller have in common?

RICHMOND COUNTY – Black Friday – the day after Thanksgiving – marked by door-busting discounts and rock-bottom prices, that has seemingly become a holiday all of its own.

HAMLET – Throughout its short existence, Richmond Young Professionals has certainly established itself as an organization which always has an event in the works.  Talk of the Town meetings, Habitat for Humanity build days, communitywide special events, and participation in a variety of charity functions, are just the tip of the iceberg for this organization's event repertoire.
