The third Saturday of each month there will be a canned food distribution at the Advent Christian Church located at 300 S. Marks St., Perrin. The food is provided by the County Probation Office and distributed throughout the county. There are no requirements to receive food except it is for people who live in the Perrin area or live in the Perrin-Whitt CISD. The monthly Food Distribution at the Perrin Advent Christian Fellowship Hall will be Saturday, Jan. 19, from 9 to 11. Enter at the north side of the church. For more information, contact Debra Tillery.
There will be a Chili/Salsa Cook-Off at the First Baptist Church in Perrin on Sunday, Jan. 27, at 6 p.m. This is a fundraiser for their youth.
Thought for the week: Society will ignore almost any form of public behavior except getting in the express line with two extra items.
