What’s not to like about November? The weather is comfortable, we get a four-day weekend, and it ushers in the food, family and friends season.

Downtown has that unique festive feeling that you just can’t get in a shopping center or mall. I’m sure part of the charm is just being outdoors. If it’s been a while since you’ve taken a stroll down the charming streets of downtown, you’ve got a treat in store.

This month, take advantage of Small Business Saturday and rediscover downtown Fredericksburg. In the pages of this issue, you’ll learn about the Main Street Initiative, which is responsible for making downtown a great place to live, work, play and shop. There’s also a fun piece about the economic impact of local businesses.

I love bringing out-of-towners to the ‘Burg. The stores and restaurants downtown offer such a wide variety of options that any and all members of your group will find something to admire and purchase. At the end of the day, you can enjoy a savory meal prepared by talented local chefs. Who knows? This may be the start of a new tradition.

St Baldrick’s Foundation began in 2000 over a simple idea – shave a colleague’s beautiful hair while also raising money for kids with cancer. And now this Foundation has funded over $200 million worth of research to cure pediatric
cancer. In 2015, the FDA approved a treatment that offers a higher chance of a cure for high-risk neuroblastoma patients because of that research.
