  • Community Christmas dinner hosts over 60

    To the editor:

    Living Hope Assembly of God held its annual Community Christmas dinner on Christmas day at 120 S. Walnut St.
    The dinner was free to the public and a ministry to citizens of Harrison County who could not afford to make a Christmas meal or would otherwise spend Christmas day alone.
    We would like to thank everyone who attended or helped out by preparting a dish. We had over 60 people attend this year.

    Tunya Adams, pastor

    This year, however, Iris included a smaller package just for me — a Nike+ Fuelband.
