Day 3 of 13 Days of Giving: Twilight Moms

Twilight Moms of Middle Georgia is a non-profit group that was formed in 2009 to bring together Moms (women who are over 21, married or have children) who are fans of the Twilight Series by Stephenie Meyer.  

They not only enjoy meeting and sharing enthusiasm for this series but love helping local and national charities while having fun.

How You Can Help:
Twilight Moms will have an event on Dec. 3 from 10 p.m.-Midnight at the Galleria in Centerville.  Twilight Moms will celebrate the release of Eclipse on DVD but will also have several fundraisers during the event.  They will have a Cookies for Kids with Cancer bake sale, will collect items for Christmas for the Children’s Hospital and will also collect canned food items for Monroe County EMS.

Robins Air Force Base Hosts Pancake Flip

Thursday is Veterans Day, but officials from Warner Robins and Robins Air Force Base honored the troops a day early on Wednesday at the 2nd annual Pancake Flip.

Mayor Chuck Shaheen was amongst the officials who honed their flapjack flipping skills while cooking up the hotcakes and then tossing them to dozens of children waiting with over-sized plates.

Installation Commander Col. Carl Buhler says they cooked up the equivalent of 6,000 pancakes Wednesday.

But the event wasn't all about fun and batter--it was also about honoring those who serve. 

"We wanted this to tie in to the Veterans Day weekend," says Buhler.

Buhler says the Pancake Flip is a long-standing Air Force tradition that started about 60 years ago.
