Merry Christmas to everyone.

It’s Christmas time and we’re living in a winter wonderland. Make sure that Christ stays in Christmas. The magic of Christmas is many things besides happiness and joy.

December, with it’s stormy weather, is undermining autumn. Rowdy stormy December has chased away gray November. Shadows form strange designs when sunbeams try to peek through snow-laden branches. Then comes the wind and it’s a changed winter wonderland.

There will be a full moon on Sunday, Dec. 23.

Welcome home to Don and Keats Scott who flew to Paris, France and spent a week sight-seeing there. They report it was one of the highlights of their lives. A good time, with no trouble or mishaps, was reported. They report misty rainy weather every day, however, the sun did shine a wee bit each morning. Keats reported they took a bus tour every day in order to see the main atractions in Paris. They report that, at the end of the week, they were ready to come home. However, there was enough left to be seen to make them want to make a return trip sometime.

Sympathies and prayers are with the family and friends of Jean Knorr whose memorial service was held Monday. It was only a little over a month ago that her husband, Karl, passed away.

(Area residents wonder how they ever got along before this great firehouse and community center was built last year.)
