That was quite a mini-blizzard at 8:00 AM this past Sunday morning – a reminder of things to come! Anyway, it seemed fitting as we decorated the church for Advent and Christmas. This coming week we will be focusing on anticipation and hope at our 10:30 Worship service. At 5:00 PM we will be having our Service of Remembrance when we will light candles for those we are missing during this Holiday season.
Mark your calendars for the Coolidge Holiday Open House on Saturday, 12/2, from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Join in the fun of Christmas past – the way it used to be. Steve Morse will entertain with holiday organ and piano music throughout the day and lead caroling at the Union Christian Church at 1:30 pm. Add to your fun by making a “Great Winter Hat” and possibly winning a prize at 3:00 pm. There are so many activities that I can’t name them all! Will there be sleigh or wagon rides? Not only will there be craft demonstrations, but young and young-at-heart alike can make wonderful things to bring home. Chocolate and cheese samples will tantalize your taste buds, and a variety of soups and chili prepared by Tyson Ladies Aid will warm you up at the Wilder House.
You can enjoy a wonderful WUHS performance of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Friday, 12/1 at 7pm, Saturday, 12/2 at 7pm, or Sunday, 12/3 at 3pm. Come see local Plymouth talent: Anna Hepler as a Vulgarian spy, Julia Kowalski as the Child Catcher and Junkman, and Eve Cole as the Baroness, with posters by Ian Dupont. Tickets are $10/adults and $5/students and seniors.
The Book Group has decided to read Sisters First by Jenna Bush Hager and Barbara Pierce Bush. Plan to join us to discuss it on Thursday, 1/11 at 6:30 pm at the Community Center. A belated happy birthday (11/26) to Julia Pierson, who is currently residing at the Gill Home.
