Tomorrow is Thanksgiving.
I don’t know about you, but I love this holiday. It’s a special day to give thanks for all our blessings and it’s not hard to think of things to be thankful for. My family and friends, our wonderful Fun Club travelers, good health, our freedoms... and the list goes on and on. So often, Thanksgiving gets lost in the hustle and bustle of getting ready for Christmas. But I have an idea to help you with that too.
Fun Club gift certificates
You might be interested to know the Fun Club has gift certificates available in any amount. It’s a perfect gift for those who enjoy theatre or travel. And who doesn’t? Many of us don’t need more “stuff” to add to the household. We’re trying to get rid of “stuff.” That’s why a gift of entertainment might be a perfect solution for your gift giving.
Your parents, grandparents, a helpful neighbor or a dear friend will surely be able to find an activity they enjoy among those listed below. And, if not, please know the Fun Club adds new activities all the time.
