On Friday, November 15, the Boys & Girls Club of Hancock County hosted their "Taste of the Future" fundraiser at the Bay St. Louis Community Hall.
The event featured live music, beer from Lazy Magnolia Brewing, and lots of food from area restaurants. Door prizes were given away, and a raffle was held for prizes including a one-night stay at the Hollywood Casino, dinner at the casino's Bogart's Steak House, a basket of cheer, and tickets to City Park's Celebration in the Oaks.
The event was Co-sponsored by HL Raymond Properties of Bay St. Louis.
On Saturday, November 9, Holly Lemoine-Raymond celebrated the premiere of Season Two of her hit TV show, "Inside Out with HL Raymond Properties" with a blowout at Dan B. Murphy's in Bay St. Louis. On hand was Dorothy Wilson, who was also celebrating the premiere of her hit show, "My Coast Home," sponsored by Gulf Coast Woman Magazine. Friends and supporters got to watch the first episode of both shows and learn the meaning of a "Holly High Five," and the All Nighters provided live music once the shows were done. Congrats to both Holly and Dorothy for highlighting the Gulf Coast to a wide audience!

The 100 Men Hall celebrated Day of the Dead (All Souls Day) on November 2 with 20 altars honoring the souls of all good who have passed away, along with music by a mariachi band, a DJ and tamales.
Unlike Halloween, Day of the Dead is not meant to be a sad or frightening holiday, but an uplifting time to remember loved ones or others who have died. Day of the Dead is a sacred day, when people celebrate the memory and the souls of those departed.
