The an­nual Com­mu­nity Christmas party was held on Sun­day, De­cem­ber 3, at the Com­mu­nity Cen­ter. Set up and decorating were done in short or­der on Satur­day morn­ing with a good gang of helpers. We en­joyed a de­li­cious catered tur­key and ham sup­per at 5:00 fol­lowed by much vis­it­ing and some Christmas mu­sic sup­plied by Toni Wil­son on the piano. Lots of young­sters wel­comed Santa (and some were not so en­thu­si­as­tic) who talked to each lit­tle one brave enough to sit on his knee and gave each one a treat bag. Door prizes were won by Lo­gan James, He­len Leon­hardt and Fred Ewing

The fu­ture of our com­mu­nity looks to be in good hands with the young fam­i­lies that are now liv­ing here and we wel­come all of you. The evening was spon­sored by the Ver­dant Val­ley Ag So­ci­ety and about ninety peo­ple en­joyed the first cel­e­bra­tion of the sea­son.

Lots of other Christmas ac­tiv­i­ties are tak­ing place in town so take part and en­joy the sea­son. Grace Lutheran Church is putting on “A Night in Beth­le­hem” on Satur­day, De­cem­ber 9, from 5:30 to 8:30. It is a walk through a num­ber of shops in Beth­le­hem as it was two thou­sand years ago. There are in­ter­ac­tive ac­tiv­i­ties at each shop for chil­dren and adults and also a sta­ble with live an­i­mals. There is no charge and ev­ery­one is wel­come to spend some time wan­der­ing through the town.

There are lots of De­cem­ber birth­days. Happy birth­day this week to Tina (Mepham) Weg­ner and Koren McDougald on De­cem­ber 7, Tami ( Wade) Bow­ers, Loretta Wil­son and Devin Hatt on De­cem­ber 8, Ron Leon­hardt on De­cem­ber 10, Kathy Leon­hardt on De­cem­ber 12, and Sophia Landry on De­cem­ber 13.
