Staff and students are busy with a multitude of activities on all campuses, and among them are the MAP Program at the Elementary has chosen the residents of Weatherford Healthcare Center to help celebrate Christmas. As a community service project, the MAP Program is partnering with the High School Beta Club to gather needed and comfort items for the folks as well as visiting them with seasonal cheer. Another busy group is the newly formed 4-H Club, who recently gathered pecans on the Chipman Farm, located in the Poe Prairie area, as a fundraiser. They put in a lot of hard work and got some good results for their toil. As a special treat the third and fourth graders recently got the opportunity to attend the Nutcracker Ballet and experience the architecture at Bass Hall. Our students are fortunate that this was courtesy of the Alice Walton Arts Foundation. A lot going on to make the youngsters well-rounded people.
The Abandoned Cemetery Association recently held the drawing for the quilt that the Thumbs and Thimbles Quilters has given them for fundraising. The winner of this beautiful creation is Judy Savage of Weatherford. Ms. Savage was thrilled and said it was the first thing she had won since she was about 10 years old. The Cemetery Association recognizes and thanks the Quilters for their gracious donation.
