Getting out this spring with several events happening in and around the Lafayette County Florida area. Naturally, we will be keeping up with the events within the county but every now and then it is nice to know what’s going on in the neighboring counties as well. If you have an upcoming event we hope you will get in touch and let us know. We will list the event on the Community Calendar and if we get enough responses of course we will post another blog article.

Promoting local writers is another function of this website. Not only do we wish to be a comprehensive resource for anyone wishing to visit and possibly even relocate to the area but we would like to let everyone know that we have some pretty great authors living here as well as great farmers, timber people and places to camp and swim. To that end we have created an Amazon Affiliate mini-store (TOM AStore) page that gathers together books and other products for and about Mayo and Lafayette County Florida. Not only historical books that have been published about the area but we would like to feature local writers as well.

Holidays and Business Promotions for some of our local small businesses. We hope everyone will spend some time in our local businesses during the holiday seasons. Anything from shopping at our local grocery store, eating out in one of the restaurants and buying some trinkets for your loved ones from one of our shops. We would also like our of our friends and family to promote these businesses that have an online presence and/or social media account page that we can “like”, “share”, and “follow” in the coming year. We have noticed that quite a few of the Mayo small businesses have been posting more on their social media pages, updating their websites with a new look and some have even gotten new social media pages and/or websites.

Fall season getting you down? Over the last several months we have all been hoping for a little cooler weather, a cessation of the bugs and time from our many chores to have a little fun. Now if only the weather would cool off enjoy for us to enjoy it. We may be inviting the bad weather by asking for cooler temperatures but we really could use it right about now.
The holidays are coming, people are traveling more, visiting their family and just trying to get out more. So, please be careful out there when you on the road. Hopefully, everyone’s harvests have gone well and the fall crops should be getting ready for picking if they haven’t been already. The kids have been enjoying school, we hope, participating in their chosen sports and learning new things. But we all need a little break every now and then. If you were able to attend the Pioneer Festival last month we hope you have a great time, took lots of pictures and are willing to share your experiences. Drop us a line using our Contact Us form.
