How does that song go? “Oh the weather out­side is fright­ful…” I hope that all of you are spend­ing lots of time in­doors with var­i­ous friends and family cel­e­brat­ing the start of the sea­son. Ernie and Mar­lene Goebel along with Leonard and Frances Pat­ter­son both have a lot to cel­e­brate this week! The Goebels and Pat­ter­sons, re­spect­fully, are grand­par­ents! Con­grat­u­la­tions to the new moms and dads and grand­par­ents!

Phil and Dawn Faubion hosted an 80th birth­day party for Betty Faubion for family and friends. Happy 80th birth­day Betty! Many happy re­turns!

The out of school care is hav­ing a Christ­mas Mar­ket. They will be bak­ing, dec­o­rat­ing and craft­ing all month, so if you are in need of last minute gifts or bak­ing for that un­ex­pected com­pany come by on De­cem­ber 23 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm at the Coun­try Kids Day­care, lo­cated next to the Co-op.

The Christ­mas sea­son is al­most upon us, and this year the Vil­lage Of­fice will be host­ing a Christ­mas house/yard dec­o­rat­ing con­test. The top three res­i­dents with the best Christ­mas lights and dec­o­ra­tions dis­play will re­ceive a gift card to our lo­cal Co-op store. Coun­cil will drive around the vil­lage and judge the dis­plays af­ter 7 on Wed­nes­day, De­cem­ber 21.

The Mem­ory Tree Pro­ject is un­der­way again this year. For a small do­na­tion, you can honor a lost loved one whose name will be dis­played on an or­na­ment on the Mem­ory Tree, the tall tree to the north­east of the Church. The names of the tree will be read on De­cem­ber 24 at 4:00 dur­ing the Can­dle­light ser­vice at Nazareth Lutheran. There won’t be a tra­di­tional Blue Christ­mas ser­vice this year, but we will take a mo­ment to pray for those we have lost and who hold spe­cial im­por­tance to us this time of year.

The Shep­herd School at the Nazareth Lutheran Church has be­gun their prac­tice for the Pageant on De­cem­ber 18. If you have a child who would like to take part, please come to re­hearsals dur­ing church at Nazareth at 10:30. Dress Re­hearsal is De­cem­ber 17 at 2:00 pm! All are wel­come!
