The Bell Team is partnering with the Georgia Mountain Food Bank this November to collect highly needed foods for those that are food insecure in the North Georgia community. But what does food insecurity mean? 1 in 5 Georgians are food insecure, which means they do not always know where there next meal is coming from.

However, Michaels (currently 50% off fall and Halloween inventory), Hobby Lobby (currently 40% fall inventory), and so many other shops have great, affordable pieces to make walking up to your home feel fall festive as well. 

Our Pinterest board has over 50 great pins to inspire you this season, whether you are looking to be fall neutral or decorate for Halloween

This month we highlighted in our October newsletter some of the activities you can enjoy this fall season. We wanted to dig a little deeper into Jaemor Farms' Alto location in North Hall, where you can enjoy the fruits of year round labor and growth as each season warrants.

The fall season is extra special with field trips to the pumpkin patch, evening adventures through the corn maze, U-Pick days, and more fun events for the family. Choose whether to take on a
