On December 20, the Pope County Book Mobile will be at Tilly, at Fountain’s, at 10:30 a.m. and then at the Zion Hill Cemetery at 11:30 a.m. The Book Mobile travels to more remote locations so that people who love to read but who can’t travel to town are able to check out and return library books very easily in their neighborhood.

We’ve got the normal weekly meetings, such as the exercise program at the Alread EH Club. Feel free to come to any of them, they would love to see you! It’s always free and always low-impact strengthening exercise. They meet every MWF from 9 to 10:30 a.m.

Sheila McGrath would like to keep doing the quilting circle every Thursday (from about 9 to 1) but needs at least one more person. If you are interested, please give her a call: 501-745-2389.

The next Alread EH Club meeting is Thursday, Dec. 14, at 1:30 p.m. Membership is down and we would really love to see you there! If you are interested in volunteering for the Alread Fire Department, please contact the chief, Elias Watson: 501-253-1869.

I hope that you’re looking forward to this holiday season and that you get to share Christmas with loved ones. If you have any community news that you would like featured here, please contact Lindsay McDonald: 501-242-3879.
