The weather has been unusually warm for this time of year. We need to enjoy it. Winter will certainly come.

We had a great turnout for our first Saturday breakfast and, while I am thinking about it, we will not have a breakfast on the first Saturday in January. We will be back on schedule on Feb. 2. We will all be ready for breakfast and fellowship then.

Christmas dinner went well. We had several children come to visit with Santa and it was wonderful to see the excitement in there eyes.

There will be a pool tournament, craft sale and silent auction at the Scotland Community Senior Center from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. Dec. 8. This is a benefit for the Senior Center.

Larry Lee had an accident this week and cut off his thumb and cut a couple of fingers. He was airlifted to Springfield, Mo., for surgery. He is home again and will have more surgery later and have several weeks of therapy to follow. It was truly a blessing that they were able to save his fingers.

The Scotland Community Corp. is raffling off a 770-270 Remington Rifle and the drawing will be at noon Dec. 22 at the Scotland School Cafeteria. Ask James for more details. The proceeds will help finance a new heating system for the cafeteria.

Anyone with news can call James Burns at 592-3935.


We started out this last week by losing two beloved friends, family and neighbors. Richard Ostergren and Beverly Luman will be missed and always remembered.

‘Tis the season for giving and with that thought in mind please consider giving canned and non-perishable foods to Fighting Child Hunger in our community. Contact Virginia Croston at 253-2204 for more information. Croston says the food that is collected will be given to the Shirley food pantry, which distributes food the third Saturday of each month.

Maybe you would like to give a donation to the Ozark Health volunteers who are raising funds to purchase seven new chemo chairs for the hospital. Patients come from all over to receive care at our hospital. Perhaps you know someone who is fighting cancer and you feel helpless, this is one way that you can help. Contact Carol Davis at 745-4575 for more information. "For it is in giving that we receive" – Francis of Assisi, Saint.

While talking with my then 4-year-old granddaughter Tayler, she stopped and looked at me and said, "If your mouth gets tired then close it and stop talking."

So until next week if you live in the Dennard area and have news call, Jackie Sikes at 253-4716.
