For those of you that have been waiting until the last minute to finish up your Christmas shopping, guess what?  It has arrived!

If you want to ensure that you have the perfect gift in hand to present to your loved one on Christmas Day, your best bet is to shop from local retailers.  At this point in the game, it is the most convenient means by which to get all of your shopping done in time. It is also a way to give back to the community at Christmastime, since it supports local jobs and boosts the tax digest of Rome and Floyd County.

Jeanne Krueger, Executive Director of the Rome-Floyd Chamber, attests that there is nothing like shopping and visiting with friends and neighbors during the holiday time.

Is there an aviation enthusiast on your Christmas shopping list?  Consider the gift of tickets to the 2020 Wings Over North Georgia air show.  They are now available at a discounted rate at www.wingsovernorthgeorgia.com, says John Cowman, the President of JLC Airshow Management, who adds that air show tickets make great Christmas gifts.

The United States Air Force Thunderbirds will return to Rome to serve as the headliner for next year’s air show, which will also feature the introduction of a new air racing series.  The U.S. Navy’s Blue Angels will be back for Wings Over North Georgia in 2021.
