Personally from Perrin

<h3>Baptist church hosted holiday dinner</h3>

PERRIN – At the Baptist church here in Perrin they had a community meal to celebrate Thanksgiving. Everyone said it was very nice and reported a good time. I wish I had known about it a little sooner as I would have put the news of it in my column. It sounded like they had a big turnout anyway!

Saturday morning, Kay called me and said they were sending me a Thanksgiving box from Angel Food Ministries from the Church of Christ here in Perrin. It was a big box of frozen food, so nice and I was so happy to get it. We will have a turkey for Thanksgiving and enjoyed a boneless ham today.

Then later in the day, C.C. Mosley brought a big bag full of groceries. This was from the Advent Christian church here in Perrin. All this on the same day. They have been doing this for some time each month.

My little great granddaughter, Jo Ann, was a cheerleader for the Millsap Bulldogs. She is 5 years old and really enjoyed it a lot. One night this week they gave each of them trophies. She was so thrilled. She went to all the games, hone and away. I never got to see her perform, but saw pictures. Maybe next year I can see her. The other two girls are Heather, 3, and Rebecca, just past 1. Three beautiful little girls and I miss them.

So many deaths recently I’ve learned about this past week.

A Kincaid, and Don Breeden at Whitt, Willie Mitchell, Marge Herring and Doris Franklin Abernathy. Doris and I graduated together, but I had lost track of her, and didn’t know she had moved to Stephenville. All of these were in a week’s time.

The Perrin Masonic Lodge No. 1082 associated with the Fort Worth Scottish Rite Foundation is selling oranges and grapefruit in time for the holidays. These fruit are from the Texas Rio Grande valley at $12 a box for 18 pounds. The orders need to be prepaid and orders in by Friday, Dec. 11. To obtain an order form you may get one at the Perrin-Whitt school office or the library. The check should be made out to the Fort Worth Scottish Rite. The pickup week will be around Dec. 14. There will be no home deliveries.
