The first Tuesday night Bingo was well-supported. Jim Bove called the first half, and I called the second half. Next Tuesday, Dec. 18 will be the last game until after new yearís. Come join us and have some fun!

There was a nice, steady crowd for the pancake breakfast at the Lanark Village Boat Club last Saturday, Dec. 8. Thanks to the volunteers who made it happen, and thanks to those who supported it, and who enjoyed the breakfast.

Didnít get to the Parade of Lights. I am sure it was beautiful. Maybe next year!

The December Birthday Bash will be this Saturday, Dec. 15 at Camp Gordon Johnston American Legion Post 82. They were also have their Christmas party. Be sure to try to join us. Party starts at 7 p.m. Fun starts when you walk in the door. The songbird Evelyn McAnally will be on hand to sing your favorites songs, along with many others. See ya there!

Members only of the Lanark Village Boat Club will have their Christmas Party also on Saturday, Dec. 15. Party hardy! I really miss Ralph Dietz this time of year. He was Santa Claus at all the Christmas parties.

Be kind to one another, check in on the sick and housebound. Keep Christ in Christmas.

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