Merry Christmas to all!

The Florence Church of Christ had a really good Christmas dinner Sunday. All the regular bunch was there and they brought some guests. It was a good day.

Richard and Leona Adams and Ken and Sylvia Byars enjoyed the ‘Ernie Haase Signature Sound’ at Madison last week. Richard and Leona also went to the Derby Dinner Theater Friday with the Morgan and Nay group. They went to ‘Double Wide Texas Christmas’ at the Hoosier Theater Saturday and said it was really good.

The Christmas lights are really pretty at Bobby and Lynn Gibson’s, Keith and Jean Littles and Donna and Dewayne Minks on Bethel Ridge. I haven’t seen the Minks home yet but have heard so much about it. Also Sam and Sandy Hickman’s and others.

Glenda Sullivan and Patty Chase took Carolyn Lowe to Madison for x-rays. They met Beverly Davis later at Bob Evans for a nice lunch and visit. Glenda and Patty were back in Madison the next day and met Judy Lozier at Ponderosa for a nice visit.

Evelyn Mitchell Leath of Greenfield called Glenda to ask about all her friends here and to say Merry Christmas to all. Merry Christmas to you, Evelyn, from Switzerland County.

Many friends and family attended the visitation at Haskell & Morrison Funeral Home for Jim Chase. We got to visit with a lot of old friends. My step brother Richard Robinson is married to Hollie, Jim and Mary Lou’s daughter so i had a nice visit with them. Sympathy to the family.

Get well prayers for Kay.
