    EVIL ON THE BEACH: It is November 12, 1928 – Yesterday marked the tenth anniversary of the signing of the armistice that ended the War to end all Wars. Last night, a celebration had occurred. Comrades in arms, wounded in the service of their nations during that Great War, toasted their reunion at a rustic lodge on the Gulf of Mexico. But, this morning, a body was discovered face down on the beach behind Sea Breeze. It was another guest at the inn. Only through careful questioning and precise logic would motive and murdereremerge. And, YOU get to help the Detective and the Charlotte Murder MysteryCompany figure out “Whodunit.”

    - The North Carolina GAL program is going to collect plastic jars of peanut butter and jelly and donate them to area Food Banks in North Carolina. We are joining others in our nation in a project that honors service to others. There are 4 national events during our collection phase to help energize our PB&J campaign. We launch our PB&J campaign in October and we end in January. Our campaign will go through January 21st, 2019, the National Day of Service. Jars of peanut butter and jelly collected by our program will be donated to local food banks and pantries.

    This is our 3rd annual state-wide service project undertaken by the staff, volunteers, friends, and supporters of our program. For 35 years, we have represented the best interest of children in court. Much of the work we do is confidential in nature and therefore, our work is largely unknown outside of juvenile court. This project is a way for us to engage our communities in provisioning their Food Banks while at the same time highlighting who we are and what we do in a more public manner.

    Encourage your friends, family, local businesses, and places of worship, schools, and neighborhoods to get involved and participate. This will help Food Banks and provide awareness about the Guardian ad Litem Program.

    The main drop off will be at the Union County Judicial Center 1st floor. A box at this location as well as others will be available December 1, 2018 - January 20, 2019. If you need further assistance and would like to be a collection site please contact Carolyn Green. Carolyn.a.green@nccourts.org (o) 704-698-3238 (c) 980-425-2558.

Fun things to do in Matthews

Since 1986 the Town Planner Calendar has been keeping families across America up-to-date about events and other fun things to do right in their hometown.

Delivered free of charge every December to millions of homes across America, our full-sized, full-color calendar is a time-tested and beloved tool for helping families stay organized. The large date blocks are not only loaded with lots of nearby events and fun things to do, there's plenty of room for you to record your own family's important events like birthdays, anniversaries, parties -- anything you have planned -- so everybody in the house can see them whenever they go to the fridge, out the front door, or wherever you choose to display it.

But there's more! Every calendar is full of coupons from popular local merchants, so you can save money while supporting small businesses right in your hometown.

And don't miss our beautiful full-color photography! Every month you'll recognize a new photo from someplace close to home, submitted to us by a local photographer. If you'd like to have your own hometown photos included in our calendar, please contact your local publisher for more information.

We truly believe it's better to "keep it local". From coast to coast and border to border, our network of franchisees work with organizations and merchants right in their community to make sure you get the information and savings you care about. We prefer to feature family-friendly events that are a short walk or drive away, and coupons from local businesses so you can support your hometown economy.

If there's something happening close to home that folks in your neighborhood need to know about, why not submit it to us today? Please note that publication of your event is subject to approval by your local Town Planner publisher.

If there's no Town Planner calendar in your area, you could be looking at a great business opportunity! Town Planner franchisees set their own hours and can work out of their homes while providing a valuable service to both homeowners and local businesses in the area. To learn more about how to become a Town Planner franchise owner, please view our franchise information page.
