I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving. My mother’s side of the family got together the weekend before Thanksgiving and my dad’s family met at my uncle’s house and we all had a good meal. On my mother’s side we had 98 in attendance and I think everyone was glad that the weather was nice and we could have it outside at my cousin’s home in Sulphur Springs.
I heard from two good friends this week, Gail Garmon and Deanna Hasten. They said that County Line Baptist Church would be having their annual “Ladies Holiday Night” on Friday, Dec. 2, at 6 p.m. The ladies will gather at County Line Baptist Church’s Family Life Center. There will be special speakers and music, and a gift for everyone. This year’s theme will be “Jesus, the Light of the World.” All ladies attending are asked to bring a salad of their choice and RSVP as soon as possible. To RSVP or for more information, please call Gail Garmon at 903-459-3312 or Pattie Lennon 903-598-2535.
The County Line community will be pretty busy for the next few weeks. I know that on Dec. 4 the church will be having a special guest singing group called The Southern Plainsmen. They are a quartet and the church will have dinner after the morning singing service. Then, on Dec. 11, the church has scheduled their Christmas program. It will begin at 6 p.m. and is called “Grandfather Tells the Real Meaning of Christmas.” I know it will be a good program.
Did anyone catch the write-up by Faith Huffman in last night’s paper about Miller Grove’s drama class putting on a dinner theatre? Well, if you didn’t I will quickly tell you that the drama department will be putting on a play and serving dinner on Dec. 15. Admittance will be $10 per person. Please RSVP by Dec. 10 so we can plan accordingly on how much food to prepare. Lasagna, green beans, garlic bread, salad, tea, and dessert will be served at 6 p.m. with the play beginning at 6:30 p.m. Just think, you can eat a great meal and then laugh off the calories during the play!
The FFA department has ordered 200 poinsettias to sell as a fundraiser. They are $10 each and they have a few different colors to choose from. If you would like to buy one (or more than one) please contact Mr. Watson or Mrs. Potts. They would make great holiday gifts!
Speaking of the holidays, Christmas is right around the corner. If anyone would like to share a special Christmas memory with me to include in the next MG News article I would be proud to receive them. I included some Christmas memories last year and it seemed to go over well with the folks that read about our little community.
Happy birthday to Lori Evans on Nov. 27; Steve Dodd on Nov. 28; Faye Tipps, Carolyn Burns and Debbie Lennon on Nov. 29; and Darrell May on Dec. 2.
If you need something to occupy your weekend feel free to come to the boys basketball tournament. It is scheduled for Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. I don’t have a bracket yet, so I’m not sure what time our boys will play.
