Washington-area residents can freshen up their new year’s resolutions by adding one resolution they’ll actually want to keep: drink fresh-pressed, nutritious, and delicious organic fruit and vegetable juices.

Purée Artisan Juice Bar™ opened its first stylish, modern juice bar yesterday, just in time to help locals start off 2012 in a healthy way. The area’s first 100% organic juice bar will offer healthy juices, blended and custom drinks, along with individual and group juice fasts, for those who want to kick start their 2012 health goals.

The Olney Farmers and Artists Market opens for a one-day Holiday Market on Sunday, December 4 from 11 am to 3 pm.  The market will include celebrations of Kwanzaa, Hanukkah and Christmas and will feature a visit from Santa and Christmas caroling. We’ll be collecting clothing for two important partner nonprofits, Our House and Aunt Hattie’s Place, so please bring your gently used or new clothes to brighten the holidays for those less fortunate.

We’ll be ready for the cold weather! Sandy Spring Friends School has donated a school bus that will be used as a warming center and will feature musicians who will keep the spirit bright inside. There will also be fire pits and heaters to keep people warm outside as well.
