UNION CITY — Happy Thanksgiving. Hope you take time to count your blessings.

As we think about the history of our country, Mayflower and the Pilgrims, we realize we have much more to be thankful for than they had. God is good.

Kentucky Blood Center collected blood at Union City on Tuesday. The number of people donating increased from last time. The total this week was 24. Two Walmart cards were given in a drawing and yours truly was one winner! Thank you.

New windows in the Ruritan building have been installed. Almost enough money has been raised to cover the cost. Money above the windows’ need will go toward doors. The deadline for giving to the Windows Fund will be Jan. 1. If you wish to donate, contact Robert Murphy at 623-9461 for details.

The Ruritan Annual Christmas Family Dinner will be Saturday, Dec. 1, at 6:30 p.m. Club members and families are invited to attend.

At this meeting, club officers for the coming year are announced and installed. Ham and turkey will be provided. You may bring a covered dish such as vegetables or casserole.

Union City Christian Church hosted an outreach meal last Saturday at June Morning in Richmond. More than 70 people enjoyed the dinner. We understand Jeremy Steele and his crew did a fantastic job with this project.

Birthday wishes to Jeanie Guess, Saturday; Amanda Wells, Hailey Sharp and Lisa Allen Daniels, Monday; David Tipton, Tuesday; and Teresa Murphy, Wednesday.
