November 21st – November 27th

The Valley Nerd Watch!


Happy Thanksgiving everyone! This is a good holiday in general because it’s just about putting all of the food you possibly can into your stomach, and that’s what the true meaning of the holidays is.

If you’re going to have a good Thanksgiving with a lot of food and family and friends that is really nice and you should appreciate it! If you’re looking forward to a bunch of tense as heck political conversations we’re pulling for you and you should maybe take a look at this? It might help a bit. Also remember that Friendsgiving is also an option!

If you’re having a nice Thanksgiving, this is the perfect time to donate to Monte’s March! It’s the yearly event that raises a bunch of money for the Food Bank of Western Mass where local hero and nice person Monte Belmonte of 93.9 The River walks 43 danged miles from Springfield to Northampton and then from Northampton to Greenfield!

Give them what you can, because they’re super efficient with money! Like a couple bucks will get needed food to one of the 211,000 people in Massachusetts who need food! If you do a monthly donation of any amount they would appreciate it even more because it means they can count on you in their budgets and that makes a lot of things easier!

And have fun playing the new Pokemon also if you’ve got it!

Oh! And check out Hack for Western Mass! It seems really cool!
