YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST!
The 17th Annual Plantation Wildlife Arts Festival is almost here! I met
with Brandy K. from the Center for the Arts last month to get the scoop
and it looks like they are really amping it up this year. The opening event
will be the always fab Patron and Preview Party on Friday Nov. 16th.
Maybe even more exciting is the guest speaker scheduled for Saturday at
3:30 - Guy de la Valdene is hosting a screening of his filmTarpon. For all
my fellow fishing fanatics out there - this is going to be something to see.
The film is about fishing in Key West in the 1970s and is set to the music
of Jimmy Buffet - need I say more? And I know you don’t want to miss
Bird Dog Bash out at Pebble Hill with a bourbon tasting hosted by J’s,
bluegrass by the Packway Handle Band, a quick-draw auction and din-
ner by John Thomas of Cowboy Grill. The other special event I’m crazy
about is the wild game cooking demo with The Outdoorsman’s Table on
Sunday. Plus - many downtown shops will be open on Sunday. So make
a weekend of it and get a little *Vlll* at Plantation Wildlife!

Three years ago I met with a hodgepodge group of ladies
to talk about Thomasville. The consensus was that there
needed to be a voice or a person to tell the Thomasville
story, to tell people what’s happening and to highlight our
local culture. I thought about that for a bit and then said
Hmm….. maybe a blog? And the Townie was born! Three
years later and with so many new friends I can’t even
count them and with umpteen blog posts and now six
newspapers published with partner Ballenger Design, not
to mention an article in Southern Living, I have to say
it…. I love this Thomasville life!! I can’t thank my sponsors
enough for believing in me these past three years and I
really can’t express how much it means to me that all of
you Townies read and love this funny little thing I write.
Thomasville is an incredibly wonderful place like no
where else on Earth. People are kind and supportive and
genuine. It’s more than I could ever have hoped for in a
town and I’m sure so many of you feel the same way. So
Happy Birthday to The Townie and a million thanks for
your support! XOXO - Bunny
Happy Birthday
TO THE TOWNIE!
My chum Melissa T. is a native of the ‘Ville and
works at the family business, Astro Exterminating.
Ever stylish and constantly kind, she’s one of the
most Towniest of Townies — popping in all over
downtown and spreading a little cheer.

Author and illustrator Jon Klassen
is back with This Is Not My Hat, a story about a tiny fish with a very smart
bowler hat -- one that doesn’t belong to him. Filled with the same quirky
illustrations, simple sentences, and on-the-edge-of-your-seat excitement found
in Klassen’s debut I Want My Hat Back,This Is Not My Hat is a new staff
favorite -- one we’re sure children and adults alike will love. Klassen’s
illustrations can be found in a couple of other Bookshelf favorites, too: Extra
Yarn and The Incorrigible Children series.

SWEET GRASS DAIRY
YOU DESERVE A NIGHT OUT!
Thomasville is so entrepreneur friendly that Tville native and Townie
Evan Carraway Wortman grew up knowing she’d one day start her
own business. After college and some work experience, she decided to
open up shop as Mimi’s the Look for Less - and my how it’s grown!
What started as trunk shows is now a full-scale wholesale line under
the name of Caroline Hill and is in 400 stores across the Southeast.
Evan says she wasn’t afraid to start a business because she knew how
well Thomasville supports its local entrepreneurs - what a great testi-
monial for The ’Ville! In addition to the wholesale line, the flagship lo-
cation of Mimi’s the Look will be right here in Thomasville. Look for
the new store to open on Jackson St. {next to Lavish} just in time for
First Friday! Mimi’s will have all the fancy bling you’ve come to expect,
plus trial-run merchandise for Caroline Hill as well as overstocks.
They’ll be introducing new items such as bone jewelry from South
Africa and some other higher end items as well as clearing space in the
warehouse, so get there on Friday for opening day deals and steals!

In six short months, the Thomasville Center for the Arts has
started their Artist Collective and attracted more than 80
members. They’ve also launched an online gallery with more than
50 diverse pieces of work, ranging frompaintings and mixed media
collage to hand-crafted furniture. The work represents a wide
creative spectrum with an emphasis on professionalism and can
even be purchased directly from the website. Proceeds from sales
made on the Center’s main page will support its fast-growing adult
art education programs. “Change” is the title for the collective’s
first themed gallery exhibit, which will be rotated quarterly and will
also be displayed in TCA’s second-floor hall gallery. The artists will
be on-hand to share their work at a special Artist Collective open-
ing at the second-floor hall gallery on November 9 from5 – 7 p.m.
