Memorial Day Weekend Events

by Sarah Wood

Memorial Day is a time to honor and remember all of those individuals who have given the ultimate sacrifice for the freedom we live today.

The American Legion Post 130 of Folkston will hold its annual Memorial Day Ceremony to honor those veterans that are no longer with us at the American Legion Hall on the corner of Little Phoebe Church Rd. and Hwy. 121 Monday, May 29 at 10:00 a.m. in Charlton County.  There will be a featured guest speaker for this event. 

The Camden County Freeholder Board is also hosting a Memorial Day Ceremony on May 27 at 10am at the Camden County Veterans Cemetery at Harleigh. 

This weekend is also a great time to welcome the summer, even if it is a little early.  Camden County is hosting the Hello Summer Festival 2017 on May 26 - 27. The proceeds go to benefit Habitat for Humanity of Camden County.  You'll find arts, crafts, and food to get summer off to a great start, as well as a free concert by Eagles Tribute band, "On the Border". The performance will start at 7pm on the Gilman Park Amphitheater stage.

Have a safe and happy Memorial Day Weekend!

What's the Cost of NOT Owning a Home?

by Sarah Wood

It’s a well-known fact that owning a home has many financial benefits.  Even so, many people still rent.  So let’s take a look at the reasons why owning a home in Southeast Georgia can benefit you financially in the long run.

It was recently reported by Zillow that:

“…it turns out that renters currently paying the median rent in many markets could afford to buy a higher-quality property than the typical (read: median-valued) home without increasing their monthly expenses.”

But where’s the proof that owning a home really is better than renting? Trulia recently pointed out in their latest Rent Vs. Buy Report 5 financial benefits of owning a home:

  • Mortgage payments can be fixed while rents go up.
  • Equity in your home can be a financial resource later.
  • You can build wealth without paying capital gain.
  • A mortgage can act as a forced savings account
  • Overall, homeowners can enjoy greater wealth growth than renters.

Studies also show that a homeowner’s net worth is 45x greater than those who rent! People also argue that homeowners have to pay taxes and for home repairs.  True, but so does your landlord, and therefore, so do you if you rent.

In the end, owning a home will always be a better financial choice.

Wishing You a Happy Mother's Day

by Sarah Wood

Mother's Day is almost here! Have you had a chance to say thanks to that special lady? If not, there's plenty of ways to show her how much you care in Southeast Georgia.  Here's a few ideas that might help.

Brunch

It's hard to go wrong with a tasty Sunday brunch. The Farmer & The Larder in Brunswick is hosting a Sunday brunch featuring delicious items such as goat cheese & strawberry stuffed french toast w/ dark chocolate butter and eggs diablo w/ deviled crab cream sauce and roasted potatoes. Or take her to scenic St. Simon's Island for Mothers Day Brunch at The King & Prince Beach & Golf Resort.

Spa Day

Give your mom the pampering she deserves with a day at the spa.  On the Green Salon and Day Spa in St Mary's is the perfect escape featuring a full selection of spa services.

Sweets

Of course, sweets always hit the mark when saying thanks. St Simons Sweets on Saint Simons Island is a fantastic sweets shop with many kinds of fudge, chocolate covered treats, ice cream, smoothies and more in the Village area.

Whatever you do, make sure you let mom know how special she is, and have a happy Mother's Day!
