Thanksgiving event a success

Kirksville News

KIRKSVILLE — Hello everyone. I hope all the community was able to attend the Thanksgiving celebration at the community center.

Cans of food were accepted for the Salvation Army. There was lots of food and fellowship. If you missed it this year, maybe you can attend next year.

Well, back at it again, now for the floor of the basement. I am getting a little tired of the dust and moving everything around. But the end is near for all the contractors, then, the work will begin for us – cleaning and returning all that junk to the proper places.

I know Billy Anglin will be glad this job is done. It was quite a bit of work. Removing a strip of concrete from the floor was a job.

Being a friend, he took on this job. I am grateful for his patience and diligence to get it done. Repairs are a job. I don’t ever want to have to do this again.

It is deer season. My friend, Jim Hurt, and his son, Brian, had good luck hunting. They each got a 10-point deer.

They both had a rare experience, they saw a bobcat. It was a bit unnerving, so the photo they took was only of the hind part of the bobcat. So that is why the bobcat is not in the paper. This was one hunting trip for a father and son that will never be forgotten.

 This is a time of the year for giving. I know many of the community churches are involved in many projects to help others.

The weather has not been too bad yet, but keep in mind the clothing bank for winter clothing.

They are in need of winter coats, especially for kids. Please contact Jean Gillium at 328-9161 with any donations.

Now, it’s time to think about Christmas. Do you have those Christmas lights ready to be put up?
