Holy cow! Chillas Hall was all decorated for the Thanksgiving dinner, and there were tables of families, and some of friends. We all enjoyed all of that glorious food. Thanks to all who brought dishes, baked the turkeys and the desserts.

Your full breakfast will be waiting at Chillas Hall this Saturday, Dec. 1. Members of the Lanark Village Golf Club will be on hand to prepare and serve it for you. Your donation of $5 will fill a plate for you. Come over and start the morning off with your friends and neighbors.

On the first three Tuesdays of next month - Dec. 4, 11 and 18 - there will be previews of Bingo at Chillas Hall. Doors open at 6 p.m. and bingo will start at 7 p.m. There will be free coffee and cookies, door prizes, and bingo, bingo, bingo. We will have a good time, so plan to try and join us. The bingo will be sponsored by the Lanark Village Golf Club.

Mark your calendars for Saturday, Dec. 8 and join us at the Lanark Village Boat Club for your sugar fix. Members of the boat club will prepare and serve pancakes/French toast, eggs, bacon, juice and coffee for your donation of only $5. See you there!

Of course, the breakfasts and bingo are open to the public.

Then, Saturday night, Dec. 8, enjoy the Parade of Lights on the Carrabelle River. Holiday on the Harbor will begin at dark-thirty, and fireworks too!

Be kind to one another, check in on the sick and housebound and - Get a grip, tie a knot, hang on to Jesus.

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