  • Homemade holiday

    ominately homemade holiday.

    My friend Pernilla suggested that all gifts should be ones that can “be used up” for a good purpose. So, something one could eat, use to cook with, to bathe with; perhaps something we could decorate with and when finished it would be a good addition to the compost pile? 

    I have planned ahead a bit: this summer when I was canning and processing things from the garden, I did extra so I could give them as heartfelt thanks to friends during the holidays.

  • Over 800 boxes collected for Operation Christmas Child

    To the editor:

    Operation Christmas Child was a great success this year in Harrison County. Last year our community collected just over 700 boxes for this ministry. The total for this year was 834.  Wow!

    We would like to say thank you to our community in supporting this ministry. Whether you gave a monetary gift, an empty shoebox a filled shoebox or items to be placed in shoeboxes or maybe all you could do was pray, it was all deeply, deeply appreciated and will change the life of a child somewhere in the world.
