While we’re talking holiday celebrations, my friends at The Morton House Museum invite you and your family to “Come Home for the Holidays,” to the museum at 501 Territorial Road in Benton Harbor. The annu-al holiday event takes place this weekend and next, the 20th and 21st and the 27th and 28th of November from 11am until 4pm each day. The historical house, built in 1849, is all trimmed with live greenery, decorated with artifacts from the Morton House collections including military artifacts, wedding items, Santa Claus figurines and Nativity scenes. A variety of local musicians will perform, and a silent auction of goods, art & antiques will take place. This is an annual fundraiser for the 161-year old museum. Tickets are just $5 each or $2 for kids from 6 to 12. Under 5’s are free. No reservation is required, and tickets are available at the door. You can enjoy tradi-tional holiday desserts and a visit by Santa each day. While the cool fall weather has ended the inaugural season of the full 18 holes at The Golf Club at Harbor Shores, it doesn’t mean the end of your shopping opportunities there.

My career with Cornerstone Chamber of Commerce began in the exact same square footage that Bryan will now hold court in that building. Mr. Tutton elected to open in that location because, in his own words, “The Arts District is vibrant and alive, and I believe the Vincent will become the business center of the district!” While Edward Jones has more than 10,000 offices nationwide, and has ranked highest in investor satisfaction with full service broker-age firms for two years in a row according to measures by J.D. Power & Associates , Bryan is pledging to put his own special imprimatur on his local office. He has told me on several occasions that in his quest to be a Champion for Change, he wants to help revitalize the city. He tells me that people want to do business in Benton Harbor, but their options are limited, and he wants to offer a local option to help the people who have 401-k’s where they used to work or want a broker where they used to live…somebody local. His great grandfather was a medical Continued on page 9 pioneer in the area, and Bryan wants to be a financial pioneer here as well. He is a mem-ber of the Benton Harbor Rotary Club, and has begun volunteering for other things in the community as well.
