During this month, we learn about the importance of agriculture through our Library book display, enjoy delicious seasonal foods, and embrace the spirit of gratitude.

    No-Shave November is a fun and charitable tradition where people, typically men, grow out their facial hair during the month of November to raise awareness for men's health issues like prostate cancer. It's an opportunity to spark conversations about health and encourage regular check-ups. Many participants also donate the money they would have spent on grooming to organizations dedicated to these important health causes.
