Winter chill in the air

Waco news

WACO — A winter chill has been in the air — downright cold is more like it, don’t you agree? This is the time of year when one begins to wonder, “Will we have a white Christmas?” A little snow would be nice, wouldn’t it? How about yesterday’s date — 12/12/12!   

Christmas programs are beginning, like the one at Waco Elementary on Tuesday evening and again for the student body on Wednesday morning. Needless to say, the play was wonderful, from the scenery to the lights, from the singing to the acting. Everyone involved did such a fantastic job! Thanks for all your hard work everyone!  The play was directed by music teacher, Mrs. Courtney Schuette.

Lots of “happenings” going on at Flatwoods Christian Church the rest of the month. Pastor Tim Jones gives us a brief rundown as follows: Flatwoods Christian Church youth will present their puppet play Dec. 23 at 10:45 a.m. (Correction from last week: Walt Compton did not write the play, but made a few “adjustments”) Christmas carolers will meet at Flatwoods Church next Wednesday at 6 p.m. Dinner at Cracker Barrel will follow; Christmas in The Valley at Renfro Valley will be Friday, Dec. 21, 7 p.m. A total of 21 have committed to go. Reservations are all in.  On Sunday, Dec. 23, at 6 p.m., there will be a variety Christmas programs at the church. Everyone,  young or old,  will be  welcome to participate. Let Pastor Jones know if you can read a scripture, poem or sing a solo, sing with a group, etc. It is open. Following this program there will be a special visit from Santa in the fellowship hall. The morning service  on Sunday, Dec. 30, will include special recognition of Harold G. Rice. Dinner will follow in the Fellowship Hall.  To close out the year, a celebration of the New Year will be had on Monday, Dec. 31 at 6 p.m.  with a chili dinner. The men will make the best chili possible. Prizes will be given to the best chili makers!

Sad to say, but “bugs” are making their rounds out this way. Not the creepy, crawly kind you can see, but those nasty little viruses, from stomach aches to flue-like symptoms. The best advice is to wash your hands, wash your hands, wash your hands and get the flu shot.

That’s about it for this week. Have a great one! Theres still time to get your Christmas program listed in this column. We have one more column before Christmas! E-mail me at and I will put you in the news!
