‘Christmas in the Village’ a success

Paint Lick news

PAINT LICK — It’s a breezy Tuesday morning here in Paint Lick, but the air feels really nice.

A small chill in the air will keep you bundled and that’s really what we all need to do – especially in this type of weather. We had a high of 74 degrees on Monday!

This warmer than usual weather is just right for the flu to come creeping in, so keep your head covered and away from the wind, keep your toes dry and stay on the move to stay well this holiday season.

This past Saturday was Paint Lick’s “Christmas in The Village” and we all had a wonderful time.

Santa was here for the children and we were pleased to have the smaller, Santa Claus-age children this year ... the wonderment in their eyes, the bright smiles and even the yawns of sleepiness as they came away from a good morning of seeing the man in the red suit. Now, that was a sight we will not easily forget.

Many, many thanks to David Day of the Paint Lick Fire and Cartersville Department.

To Santa, Mrs. Claus and their helpers, I thank you for making memories of one more year with “Christmas in The Village.”

To all who came through the door at Friends of Paint Lick, you are the reason we stay open, to the Brass Band Quartet in the parking lot of The Arts Center ... you all are amazing.

Lennie and his wife, Glenda, at G and L Grocery, 925-9000, helped with the crowd as they grilled and sold hot dogs and had soft drinks.

Thank you, Lennie and Glenda, for being a part of our small community ... by working together, we will make it big!

The Community Arts Center will be hosting an “Evening with Don and Beth Weber” this Thursday, Dec. 6, starting at 7 p.m.

As most of you know, Don is Paint Lick’s “chair man”  and that is just one of his many talents, but then, it  takes a good woman to make an good man. I believe the evening  will be a smash.

This coming Saturday, Dec. 8, will be open house and ribbon-cutting for Halcomb’s Knob Bed and Breakfast, off Old Wallacetown Road. Deborah Messenger is welcoming everyone to her home for light breakfast, refreshments and holiday favorites, including an assortment of mini-egg and cheese tarts, cheese horns, baked brie, cranberry orange frosted apple coffee cake, pecan, oat muffins and samples of cinnamon rolls and fruit cakelets.

To top that off with mulled cider and hot coffee will be a warm treat.

If you need directions to Halcomb’s Knob Bed and Breakfasts’ open house, call Deborah at 859-925-9936. She is oh, so very nice and welcoming.

If you like baskets and would enjoy making one of your own, try the class at the arts center here in Paint Lick, this coming Saturday at 2 p.m. with instructor Ruth Cross from Woolum, Ky.

The class is called “Basket with an Attitude.” You can actually take a basket home and consider this a really unique gift for someone on you Christmas list. Call Hal and Yvonne at 859-925-2741.

Before you read this column next week, we will have made it through 12-12-12 ... think about that folks, for me,  it was really hard just to get used to the year 2000. How far we have come!

Happy birthday to Cassie Harker, Dec. 10; Taylor Egner, Dec. 13; and Terry Shell, Dec. 15.

May God bless.

    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.
