    Dogs Love September

    It's a fact in my house; dogs love the cooler weather just as much as we do. September is a great time to get them outdoors having fun and learning new skills at Masterful Dog Training.

    We have a new agility area set up at Lynaire Kennels and everyone is having a great time teaching and exercising their dogs. Training strengthens the bond between you and your dog and I'll teach you how to communicate on a better level than before. Come learn how to speak to your dog using their language.

    No Child Wet Behind!

    No Child Wet Behind! During the month of August, Tryon Civitan Club is sponsoring a diaper collection drive to benefit Religious Community Services and Coastal Women's Shelter. We learned that food stamps and the WIC program do not cover the cost of diapers and day care facilities will not accept babies without disposable diapers. This is a real catch 22 for many of the working poor in our community as disposable diapers are not cheap. If you would like to donate diapers, you can drop them off at the UPS Store on Glenburnie Road (across form the Post Office) through August 31. Partial packs (that have already been opened) are acceptable and adult diapers are needed as well. For more information, please contact Leigh Wilkinson at 252-672-5482 or

    Does any of this sound like you?

    You’re successful but not fulfilled.

    You know it’s time for a change in your career or business but you don’t know to what?

    You often drift off at work thinking about doing that “thing” you really want to pursue.

    It’s 3 am and you’re wide awake thinking about what you need to do in order to solve a problem or achieve a goal.

    You are afraid of what others will think about your decision to make changes in your life or business.

    If so, you are cheating yourself out of the life you deserve. Call Tameka with DFI Coaching at (252) 259-

    3432 or to schedule your complimentary Discovery Session today!
