The Sneeden family enjoyed an early Christmas get-together last weekend at the home of Janice Sneeden. Richard and Lynn made it home from Indiana, Michael and Sarah came from Nashville, Caleb and Justin came from Bloomington, Jan and Jaci Kirk, Michael and Ty Morioni came from Springfield, and the Pike County crew included Gary and Trena Martin, Bryan, Lila, Renae and Raven Martin, Greg, Braden and Caramia, Martin, Stason, Amber, Ashton and Zane Martin, Hope Sneeden and son Max, Andrew, Becca, Nate, and Saylor Sneeden, Ashlynn Martin and daughter Audrey Crow, and Brooklyn Crone. Everyone enjoyed a wonderful lunch, then spent the afternoon playing games, enjoying the cookies and candies Grandma Sneeden made, and just being together, laughing and telling stories. Although everyone missed Amy Martin who couldn’t be there, they enjoyed her peppermint fluff salad!
Our Apple Festival Queen, Nathalie Lothridge has had a busy week! She was invited to Liberty by the reigning Miss Liberty to join her Music Trivia team of local queens. Nathalie says she had a ball and learned a lot about music at the same time. Saturday, she and the reigning Jr. Miss Perry, Mariska Sheurman, helped out at the Meet Santa breakfast in Perry. They passed out crafts, spoke with the children, and enjoyed taking part in the nutcracker themed event. To finish their day, Nathalie and Mariska helped out with the Community Christmas Tree. They helped the children pick out a toy to take home and meet with Santa and Frosty.Sympathy is extended to the family and friends of Gary Liehr, Sr who passed away Dec. 12.
