The "Village People" are at it again... We have decided to participate in "Relay for Life" by forming a Heritage Village Team. Mary Beth O'Steen, from The Bridal Shop & General Store, has kindly offered to be our Team Captain. Putting our thinking caps on, on how to raise money for our team, we came up with "Shop Hop" Heritage Village as our first fundraiser.


Here's how to get Hoppin':


Pick up a walking map ($1.00 donation) at any of the following Village Shops:


Pickers & Peddlers, SuGaBuG Kids, Heritage House, La Te Da, Cotton Club, Manatee Toy Company, Aardvarks, Just a Cupcake, Back Porch Garden Wine & Tea Bar, General Store, Café on the Avenue, MezMerEYES, All About Nature.


Proceed to "Shop Hop" by getting map stamped at each participating Heritage Village shop on map. You have from March 1st through 31st to accomplish this task. When map is complete, turn in at Heritage House and pick ONE GREEN EGG from many. Some having ONE FREE chance, up to the LUCKY GREEN EGG having TWENTY FREE chances. These chances will go into the drawings of your choice! ***ONLY when you turn in completed stamped map are you eligible to purchase additional multiple chances for ONLY $1.00 per chance.



If you are unable to "Shop Hop" at Heritage Village, but would love to participate in our drawings (by donating to "Relay for Life, Heritage Village Team) you are still able to participate. Stop by any of the participating shops and donation $5.00 per chance for the prize at their shop. If you would like donate towards "friends of the Village prizes" visit their store or Heritage House is taking donations for them as well.


I hope you will support this cause by "Shop Hopping" Heritage Village!


All proceeds from "Shop Hop" goes to "Relay for Life," Heritage Village Team... Now... Let's Get Hopin'!


Have a Hoppy Day!

February 2012 - Citrus Springs, Florida - Who knew what kind of games, mischief, and downright fun the food in your freezer has when you're not looking! In a box of Popsicles, Green is usually the last one to get picked. They need something to do while waiting for their turn. What better way to pass the time then dancing with the Girl Scout Cookies, playing ring toss with the Toaster Strudels, or hiding from Texas Toast. That's just some of the fun the green Popsicle has in this hilariously funny children's book "Go for the Green" written by Jerri Lawrence Acree and cleverly illustrated by Ed Velez. This wildly creative book will make you laugh and feel good at the craziness that lurks behind the freezer doors. This is the first book from the series "Life Behind the Freezer Doors."


Jerri Lawrence Acree is a single mother raising her two children, one with special needs. Jerri has been writing since she was a child and has now decided to put her books "out there" for all to enjoy. "Having a son with Down Syndrome has taught me a lot of things. But I think the four most important lessons in this life are, humor, passion, compassion, and lots and lots of love. All of which I put in every one of my books!"
