Hurrah for Morgan Mill!
Tonight will be the annual Thanksgiving dinner at Morgan Mill Baptist Church at 6 p.m. Meat will be provided. Everyone is encouraged to bring a vegetable, salad or dessert to share. Brother Joe wants to invite your friends and neighbors. There is always an abundance of food in Morgan Mill so come and give thanks for the many blessings you have enjoyed this year.
On Monday, Morgan Mill Methodists will feed the Tarleton kids at the Wesley House on Tarleton Street. If you know a college student who likes to eat, tell them to be there at noon. Debbie Lincoln and a crew are fixing free lunch for over 100 hungry students.
Next Sunday, Nov. 29, is the traditional fifth Sunday for Morgan Mill Methodist Church. At noon, at the Community Center, food will be in abundance in Morgan Mill again. Everyone is invited. Bring your favorite dish and then stay to decorate the Community Center. It is time to decorate for Christmas. We have a lot of decorations in the attic and need volunteers to assemble and make the Community Center ready for family Christmas parties. The first year that the Community Center was open, Larry and Carolyn Browning donated a bunch of great Christmas decorations. Alice and Roscoe Davis decided that their Christmas tree was too big so it too came to the Community Center. Butch and Kay Fraser, before they moved, donated the life-size choir figures. We appreciate the donations; it makes it is easy to decorate. Come at 1; it is fun to get together and make our Community Center shine with the Christmas spirit. It will not take long with lots of help.
The combined choirs and band will have their traditional Christmas Morgan Mill School program on Dec. 15 at 7 p.m. Nancy Lingle promises some different Christmas music from the choir and David Venable always treats us to the traditional sounds of Christmas from the bands.
The Live Nativity Pageant has been set for Saturday, Dec. 19, with a bad weather make-up day for Monday, Dec. 21. This live performance has grown to be a special evening. Sandy Sandstrom has agreed to take over the organization of the event. Every year something new is added, which makes it a bigger and better performance. If you want to be a participant, call Sandy. Hot soup and sandwiches will be provided after the performance. Everyone is invited. Bring your blankets, it may be cold. The event takes place on the Community Center patio starting at 5:30. Last year, it was standing room only for this heart warming Christmas event.
