Thoughts While Shaving for December 10

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. … Christmas trees, shoppers busy, merchants smiling and youngsters excited as they talk to Santa. It really is a most wonderful time of the year.

Christmas Cantatas scheduled … a couple that I am aware of, both scheduled for Sunday evening … Wesley’s Chapel UMC, Peanut Plant Road, Elizabethtown and Elizabethtown Presbyterian Church on West Broad Street, Elizabethtown. … There are others, check for date and time.

As we think of Christmas, can’t help but think of the less fortunate … many individuals and churches ‘step up’ this time of year. … One that has been ongoing for years in this area is Elf Angels. … Debbie Heustess is the person in charge. Elf Angels purchases new gifts for boys and girls county-wide. If you are looking for an organization that will spend your money wisely and work with folks in need … contact Debbie. … Her address is PO Box 746, Clarkton, NC 28433.

Not much activity at the local Board of Elections. … We moan and groan and question government, but remember, if you aren’t willing to make yourself available … don’t want to hear your complaints. … Filing deadline is noontime Friday, December 20. Local Board of Elections is located behind the Elizabethtown Post Office.

Show me where you have been and I will likely have some idea of where you are going.
