The FFA’s dressing dinner went over quite well Sunday. The FFA officers asked Mrs. Brenda Dodd to help make the dressing. She did an outstanding job as usual. When she worked in the school cafeteria, she was our chief dressing maker. Mr. Watson, senior ag teacher, said that he thought there were over 200 served. I saw several community members there. I visited with Jim and Mary Burns for a few minutes. I also saw Coy and Patsy Johnson, Woody and Gail Garmon, Sara Price, Belle Renshaw, Ken and Phyllis Haywood, Shirley and Lewis Watts, Lana and Larry Mabe, and several others. It was nice to see so many MG folks that came out to support the local FFA chapter.
At Monday night’s school board meeting a new board member was sworn in. Jason Back is filling the vacancy that Carolyn Burns left when her term ended in October.

Other school board members include: Jason Back, Doug Hall, Jim Potts and Blake Smith.

Gail Garmon asked me to spread the word about the County Line Baptist Church’s annual Ladies Holiday Night. She said the gathering is scheduled for Dec. 4, at 6 p.m. in the church’s fellowship hall. This year the ladies have chosen the theme “Recipe for Friendship.” Everyone is invited and encouraged to bring a salad of some type to the event. Gail also said to be sure and bring a friend. The only stipulation is that you have to be a lady! (Sorry, guys, we’re not allowed.) Please register with Gail (903-459-3312) or Pattie Lennon (903-598-2535) no later than Nov. 28.
This Saturday, Nov. 20, there will be a Ranch Rodeo to help raise money for our local volunteer fire department. The rodeo will be held at Burns Arena on FM 275. The VFD’s goal is to raise enough money to make the payments on the new fire station until March of the upcoming year. In addition to the rodeo events there will be barbecue, hamburgers, and several other foods. The rodeo will begin at 2 p.m. and admission is $5 per person (children under 7 are free). For additional information contact Chief Brian Thomas.
