Santa Claus pays visit to Kirksville

Kirksville News

KIRKSVILLE — Hello everyone. You know Christmas is near when you see Santa riding on a fire truck.

Oh yes, Santa visited Kirksville. Santa had many helpers including Spot the Dog.

Kids stood on the street corner waiting for Santa with cookies in hand.

Parents have not seen Santa’s belly. I hope those cookies were low calorie and sugar free.

The kids were not the only ones who came out of their homes to see Santa. People of all ages took this once-a-year opportunity to see Santa.

The Kirksville Volunteer Fire Department sent out a special letter just to get Santa to make a special trip to Kirksville. I am glad the fire department gave the reindeer a rest. Thank you volunteers for making this Christmas a little more special for many.

Susie at the Roundhill store has prepared a great Christmas dinner this Friday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The time may carry over a little bit, so don’t look at the clock and think it is too late. Stop by. She has prepared country ham, turkey, of course, mashed potatoes, dressing, broccoli casserole, corn pudding, and  the list goes on. Since I missed lunch, I am getting hungry right now. Don’t forget the desserts. Great food, great friends.

Sunday at 11 a.m., Kirksville Baptist Church will be having its Christmas Cantata, performing a wonderful service in music. Hark the Herald, angels sing. Glory to the new born King.

Also, don’t forget to make your plans to worship Christ on Christmas day with Kirksville Baptist Church during a Christmas candlelight service at 8 p.m.

Full Gospel Tabernacle will be having its youth group Christmas party on Dec. 29 from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Worshiping and celebrating Jesus’ birth should continue past Christmas day.

Take this Christmas time to love your family, friends and to worship Jesus.

    This week marks the 44th anniversary of Earth Day, and what could be more important to our survival than clean air, clean water and clean food?

    I love this time of the year because eggs really do go down in price during the Easter season. I have some new recipes on how to fix eggs besides the coloring part.

  • 4.15 Eggstravaganza 1.jpg Easter bunny's ‛eggbeater’ will fly eggs to Richmond

    Who knew the Easter bunny could fly?

    Skeptics can come to the Easter Eggstravaganza in Richmond’s Irvine-McDowell Park on Saturday to see for themselves. However, the bunny still doesn’t fly in bad weather. But on Monday, temperatures in the 60s with partly cloudy skies were predicted for Saturday.
