This holiday season, as we are about to start a brand-new year, you might be wondering what impact you can have to improve this new year for someone else. What can you do to share your own good fortune with someone else? How can you give back?
When we think of volunteer opportunities, often we are thinking of working at a soup kitchen or maybe putting in some hours at a local Samaritan center. While these are both excellent ways to give back to the surrounding community, they are not, by any means, the only ways we can donate our time for the betterment of others!
Here are a few opportunities that may interest you and your family as you look for non-traditional ways to bring cheer to others during this holiday season:
The Chattanooga Zoo is putting on a fun and inviting light show December 14, 15, 21, and 22nd. They are looking for volunteers to help turn this night into a magical wonderland for all their guests, both young and old. They mention that though the night ...

We have made it to the middle of the holiday season. Thanksgiving has come and gone and Christmas will be here before you know it!
There are a few notable holiday events this month in Chattanooga area. First, the Chattanooga Holiday Market began this weekend. Local vendors, artists, and creators will be gathering each weekend leading up to Christmas to provide every hand-crafted or locally sourced gift you might want for this holiday season.

It's officially Fall but if you are a native to the Chattanooga area or thinking about moving to Chattanooga, you may already know that Chattanooga's summers obey the rules of no man-made calendar. A typical Chattanoogan "summer" lasts from about mid-March to well into October. Homes in Chattanooga tend to blast the air conditioning for roughly half the year!
So, what can you do when the heat just gets too much? Well, there are two slightly overlapping schools of thought. Embrace it or escape it!
Embracing the heat in Chattanooga comes in many forms. For those not afraid to sweat a little, there is the Chattanooga Riverwalk or the Tennessee Riverpark, which stretches about 13 miles along the Southern edge of the Tennessee River. You can rent a bike from the Bike Chattanooga sharing system and return the bike to one of 41 stations across Chattanooga. The Riverwalk will also take you near the Art District where you'll pass the Hunter Museum and can stroll through ...
