Hope you enjoyed your breakfast last Saturday at Chillas Hall. The members of the Lanark Village Golf Club were glad to see you and thank you for your support. We will be looking forward to serving you on Saturday, JaN. 4. In the meantime, have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

A good full breakfast will be ready for you Saturday, Dec. 14 at the Lanark Village Boat Club. The breakfast is a week early this month.  Breakfast will begin at 9 a.m. and a donation of $5 will be collected at the door. The Christmas Party at the boat club will be next Saturday for members and guests only.

Later this Saturday evening, Dec. 14, you can enjoy the Parade of Lights on the Carrabelle River. The parade will start at dusk.

Our monthly covered dish luncheon will be Sunday, Dec. 15 at Chillas Hall. Doors open at 12:30 p.m. and chow line forms at 1 p.m. All you need is a dish to share, a donation and your growling stomach. See ya there!

Many years ago our late friend and neighbor, Roscoe Dally, started the tradition of having smoked turkey on Christmas morning. In his memory, the tradition continues and Bob Dietz has hosted it every year since. The doors open at Chillas Hall 8:30 to 11 a.m. Come on over. Enjoy a sandwich or two and have a great Christmas morning. Thanks to Ken LaPaz who did the smoking.

Doesn’t the outside and inside of Chillas Hall look great? Dot Bless and her helpers put up the decorations. There are two huge candy canes at the entrance to the Village on Heffernan Drive and US 98. Thanks guys and Cheryl.

Our next lunch at the Senior Center will be Thursday, Dec. 19. This will be our Christmas dinner and there will be no more lunches until further notice.

Be kind to one another, check in on the sick and the housebound and remember, Santa’s making his list and checking it twice, so be good!

Until next time, God bless America, our troops, and the poor, homeless and hungry.
