Giving Thanks 2020. Rocky Point Weekend Rundown

The holiday season is upon us, as irregular as it may be.  Large gatherings have been swapped for intimate dinners with a handful of family and friends; traditional seasonal “posadas” (holiday parties) are traded out for Secret Santa exchanges and spirited toasts over Zoom. Still, there’s ways to help out around the community for this season! So, before we run down the weekend – here are some ways you can spread holiday cheer.

Thanks for Giving!
