Everyone have a joyful Christmas
Have a joyful Christmas and remember the true meaning of the holiday.
May each of you remember in your hearts and homes the only true meaning of Christmas. God bless each and everyone.
I understand this past Friday, Dec. 17, Pike County was the place to have been.
There was a good meal and a good group at the Pleasant Hill Senior Center’s Christmas Dinner that day. Then that evening there were both a very good crowd and a good show given by Yesterday’s News at the Cardinal Inn.
There will be a free Christmas Meal at the Cardinal Inn this Saturday, Dec. 25, with serving starting at 12 p.m. Volunteers to help transport people and meals and / or to serve the meal are needed. This meal is provided so no one will be alone on Christmas Day.
Everyone is welcome.
