We are just getting drier all of the time. There has been no rain at all in December, so far.
Everyone is getting ready for Christmas. The Elm Grove Christmas party was held last Saturday night. We were short on kids for the program this year due to so many family get-togethers on the same night.
Gloria Weatherman, assisted by Amy Tucker, presented a cute program.The kids always do a good job, considering they have no rehearsals. Bobby Deeds led the group in singing Christmas songs and Michael Suber read the story of Jesus’ birth from the Bible. We were few in number but we had a good time. Santa Claus was unable to be there but he had dropped off gifts for the kids.
There will be a New Years’ Eve party at the community center at 8:00 PM on the 31st. Come and join us for more good food and fun. We will see who makes it until midnight.
We missed Wilma and Curtis Lee at the party Saturday night. Wilma has taken the lead with the program for many years, but was unable to be there because, along with her other health problems, she has taken a fall and suffered a broken hip. She is in rehab and doing as well as she can. When it rains, it pours! We send Wilma our best wishes.
Bethany Suber came home for the day on Saturday. Friday was her birthday and she had to work, so she came home Saturday for Mom to cook the requested birthday lunch and to collect some presents. She helped her Mom and Dad cut and haul a load of wood and we all sure appreciate that.
Marilyn Suber and I went to Concord Baptist Church, near Bangs, Sunday night for their Christmas program. Lanell Parson was the pianist and Ken sang in the choir. Kelton and Hannah Parson were participants in the program and I personally think Hannah was a very cute little lamb. She says she was a “Dorper”, how many of you know what that is? Aldris Parson also attended.
We take this opportunity to wish each and every one of you a very Merry, as well as safe and healthy, Christmas and New Year.
