Saturday is Dec. 1, the first Saturday in December, which means it is the first Saturday breakfast. We serve at 8 a.m. and the charge is only $5.

Saturday night is our annual Christmas Dinner. This is free and the Scotland Community Corp. will furnish the turkey and ham. The rest is potluck so bring your favorite dishes and desserts. Dinner starts at 6 p.m. We hope to see a good turnout from the community.

Doris Ingram had surgery last week and we are very pleased to be able to say she is home and on the way to a quick recovery. We have lots to be thankful for.

Thanksgiving was a big affair at the home of James and Joyce Burns. They had several family members from out of town and as well as their oldest son James Lee and Gail Knight. We had so many that we put tables up outside and enjoyed the wonderful weather and had room for everyone.

Charlie Deckleman had a great sermon at the Scotland Baptist Church. He chose John 7:32-39. Those of you that missed it certainly missed a blessing.

Hayely Drye, granddaughter of Sean and Jackie Sikes, was the winner of a bookshelf of books from the Clinton Library. When Hayley, age 2, saw her new bookshelf full of new books she exclaimed, “Oh cool.” Yes, Hayley, very cool.

The leaves fell silently to the ground coating the earth like a warm blanket. The flavors of Thanksgiving dinner still lingered in the air. She had a plan, she braved the mobs, conquered the sales and came home victorious. Hayley’s mommy, Jessica Drye, survived Black Friday, and I know Hayley will once again have the opportunity to say, “Oh cool” when she sees her gifts at Christmas.

I hope all of you who shared in, or worked, the Black Friday sales are well rested and ready to enjoy and celebrate the true meaning of Christmas with friends and loved ones.

Now that Thanksgiving is a memory, and the turkey leftovers are gone, call 253-4716 to send your Dennard area news to Jackie Sikes.
