Hey there,

November was amazing!

It has been such a fun past month. With Thanksgiving and my eighth wedding anniversary on Veteran’s Day along with the culmination of football season, it has really been a celebration!

What made our anniversary even more special was that we have now partnered with the VA, and we are a community clinic of choice, so we can provide diagnostic services for hearing, hearing aid fittings, and hearing aid services for our veterans in the community! That’s a really big honor, and we really enjoy serving our veterans.

We also started our Hear For the Holidays competition in November. I’m super excited for all of the submissions that we’ve received from throughout our community for people who are deserving to hear their families for the holidays. Reading through the submissions has been really heartwarming!

It’s such an honor to give back to the community. To hear from you all that you’re enjoying life again because of being able to hear better is one of the best parts of my job!

Stay tuned to learn all about our lucky winner!

And since it’s the season of thanks, I’m also thankful that peppermint mocha coffee is back! That’s my favorite flavor of coffee, and it reminds me of the holidays. I am thankful for the cool weather that we finally have in Louisiana, as it was such a hot summer!

So, from all of us at Selective Hearing and from me, we hope you have the most incredible holiday and enjoy the festive season with friends and family with the gift of hearing.
