Don and Evelyn Bryan’s Christmas party was well attended. There were 18 who attended. The supper was wonderful and she had plenty of dessert after everyone was through eating. We played a game called Going To Grandmother’s House. The object of the game was to take something with you. We had to keep our minds sharp or we were out. We then drew a present out of a pile in the middle of the floor or got one of the presents that someone else had picked. After all the fun everyone went home, but with the memory of wonderful time.

My prayers and sympathy go out to the Barbara Tidwell Warren family and the Harold Dye family and all the rest that have lost a loved one.
