PERRIN – Betty Blakley informed me that the Blakley Art Class will have its annual Christmas Craft sale Saturday, Dec. 1, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Perrin Church of Christ fellowship room. They will be selling homemade pillows, jewelry, various artwork and other handmade crafts. There will also be a bake sale in conjunction with the Crafts to help raise money for the youth at the church.
I received a note from Betty Blakley. “I would like to thank everyone that sent food, cards, flowers or remembered us in prayer in the passing of our mother Jennie Bettie Snow. We are truly blessed to have such amazing friends and family. A special thank you to our church family for the wonderful lunch and their never ending service. Love you all - Betty Blakley and Tommy Snow.”
I mistakenly reported about the community pantry at the Perrin Advent Church. This wasn’t a drive for food, it was to inform locals about the service. The third Saturday of each month there will be a can food distribution at Perrin Advent Christian Church, 300 S. Marks St., Perrin. The food is provided by the Jack County Probation Office and distributed to those in need throughout the county. There are no requirements to receive food except it is for people who live in the Perrin area and/or in the Perrin-Whitt CISD. The next date for distribution is Saturday, Dec. 15, from 9 a.m. to noon. For more information contact Debra Tillery.
Story time at the Perrin school library is Wednesday, Dec. 12, from 10 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. All preschool-aged students are welcome.
Madiolene Mosley fell last Thursday morning and broke her leg. She is in the hospital in Weatherford and will have surgery in 10 days. At this time recovery is expected to be three months.
Gifted/talented referrals are now being accepted for the 2012-13 school year. Referral forms are available in the elementary and high school offices. Completed forms need to be returned to Mrs. Amye Eudy or to the offices by Nov. 30. Testing will begin in December and qualified GT students will receive GT services beginning in January.
The elementary Christmas program is scheduled for Dec. 14 at 9 a.m. in the elementary gym.
Mamaw’s House has a drop-off box for stuffed toys in the Perrin Post Office until Dec 15. They are accepting donations of new small to medium stuffed toys and small lap/throw blankets now through the Christmas holidays. These will be delivered to homes in the Perrin area and if enough toys are donated, they will reach out to other rural areas in the county. They have had a good response so far. Weldon and Dorothy Cranford are the caretakers of the project. You may send toys or monetary donations to Mamaw’s House, P.O. Box 444, Perrin, TX 76486.
The Perrin basketball teams will all travel to Gorman on Nov. 27 games begin at 4 p.m. The JV boys and varsity boys and girls team travel to Forestburg on Dec 4. The JV girls will play at Chico the same day. The Perrin Varsity Tournament is set for Dec. 6-8.
The junior high basketball teams will play at home Monday against Santo with the games beginning at 4 p.m.
Thought for the week: Some people are living proof that it is easier to get older than it is to get wiser.
