Chances are your young student is excited to head back to school and reconnect with friends, see favorite teacher and sign up for fun extracurricular activities. Of course, they'll also need to dive into their studies - a little something many would rather skip. No such luck. However, there are ways that you as parents can help make that whole homework and studying thing a little more bearable for kids and teens. Here's how…

The 4th Annual Glitz, Glam & Goodies was held on Saturday, February 1st, 2014 from 10am-2pm at the Baker County Ag Center and was a huge success. This event that is geared towards women in the community is usually held in May but was moved to February this year to encourage men to also attend the event to buy some gifts for the special women in their lives for Valentine’s Day. This event was open to Chamber and Non-Chamber members as a way to promote their businesses in the community.
There were three raffle prizes that were donated by Chamber members…$700 worth of furniture was donated by the local Gibson McDonald Furniture Store, a beautiful patio set from Wal-Mart DC #6099, and a 4 day cruise from Country Federal Credit Union, Moonlight Blessings and the Baker County Chamber of Commerce, the raffle winners were drawn and announced at the end of the event.
The vendors that were a part of this event that are Chamber members were Mary Kay Cosmetics showing their make-up and cosmetics, The American Cancer Society, Baker Women’s Political Network, Oldcastle Southern Group, Vitas Innovative Hospice Care and The Baker County Health Department were all giving out information about their organizations, Metabolic Research Center showed their weight loss products, Avon Products-Joyce Hall and the youth department of First Baptist Church of Macclenny sold chicken salad sandwich plates and were a favorite among those attending the event. Vendors that also had booths but that were not members of the Chamber were, Jessica Kittrell -Thirty One Products, Melanie Delaney-Lia Sophia Jewelry, Susan Register-Dixieland Delights, Scrubs-LaSondra Bridges, Debbie Crews- Pampered Chef, Leigh Ann Dubie-Wine Shop at Home Products, Tabitha Blackshear-Cajun Cupcakes, Morgan Craven-Plexus Weight Loss Products, Honey-Judy Altimiller, Rada Cutlery-Nancy Oliver, Joyce Johnson-Tupperware Products and Chocolate Covered Strawberries by Tiffany Spreadbury which we are sure will be a huge hit for women and men with Valentine’s Day coming up. Each of the vendors involved also had a prize to giveaway that was announced at the end of the event.
Entertainment was provided by all the cute little ones involved in the Macclenny Elementary School Glee Club who came and sang a few songs to get the morning started off right and then Anytime Fitness Zumba Instructor Kendra Morgan conducted a Zumba Fitness Class and throughout the day Miss Forestry Queen was walking around, signing autographs and taking pictures.
There were many guests coming in and out of this event throughout the day and the weather could not have been better especially with the county just a few days before having an artic freeze. The vendors were very pleased with the amount of traffic coming to visit their tables during the event and we believe that this was the best and most successful year of this event.
We would like to thank all of the sponsors, vendors, and participants of the 4th Annual Glitz, Glam & Goodies, we know that this was such a success because of your involvement!!!
