Back To Ba­sics Group To Host Christ­mas Bingo, Myan­mar Singers

McDonald County Press - - COUNTY - Sally Car­roll

The McDonald County Back to Ba­sics Group will end the year with a bang when mem­bers cel­e­brate with a Christ­mas party.

Founder Robin Kil­lion

said the group, which was formed 10 years ago, res­onates with mem­bers who keep com­ing back for the en­ter­tain­ing and ed­u­ca­tional pro­grams.

About this time last year, Kil­lion asked group mem­bers if they were in­ter­ested in main­tain­ing the

group. Many ex­pressed their in­ter­est in con­tin­u­ing to meet, share ideas, so­cial­ize and learn from in­ter­est­ing speak­ers.

“B2B has sur­vived and thrived,” she said.

The group is a grass­roots ef­fort to com­bine ed­u­ca­tion, in­for­ma­tion, com­mu­nity

ser­vices and a so­cial out­let. Mem­ber­ship is free and open to all. The group meets monthly to learn and share about such sub­jects as cook­ing, gar­den­ing and more.

The Christ­mas party is open to any­one who would like to at­tend and check out the group.

“We are al­ways happy to have new­bies,” Kil­lion said.

The group will meet at 6:30 p.m. Thurs­day, Dec. 13, at the New Mac Build­ing in An­der­son.

On the agenda are a Christ­mas potluck (bring a dish of your lik­ing), games, prizes, Christ­mas bingo and

en­ter­tain­ment by folks from Myan­mar, at­tired in their na­tive dress, who will sing.

Those who plan to at­tend are asked to bring a wrapped or bagged Christ­mas gift, not more than $1 to $2, for the Christ­mas ex­change.

Canned goods also may be brought for Crosslines.
