Saturday before last, the Plainview Community Club held their Christmas craft fair at the gym.  There were lots of vendors with goods for sale.  The sophomore class served lunch and it was a very enjoyable day.

A week ago Saturday, Linly and Sherrel Stum visited with Clint and Wilma Evans, former Towner residents.  They said to tell everyone hello for them.

Leo and Kathy Specht helped Jim and MaryAnn Richardson get to Arizona, where they spend the winter months.  On the way home, they visited the Grand Canyon and then went on to Tulsa, Oklahoma, to see their new grandson Noah Lee, son of Vicki and Michael Purdy.  Then they went to Hays, Kansas, to visit their daughter Becca and children.

Freda Schmidt and Bryan and Dorcas Berggren spent lots of time in Syracuse, Kansas, Friday and Saturday watching the "Border War" basketball games.  Abby Berggren was playing for the Tribune, Kansas, team.  For your information, "Border War" teams were:  four teams from Kansas and four from Colorado.  They saw lots of good basketball.  Freda had Sunday dinner with Bryan, Dorcas and Abby Berggren.

Saturday, several family members and friends gathered at the home of Sean and Misty Harkness to help their son Gabe celebrate his 4th birthday.  Happy Birthday Gabe!

Last Tuesday, Susan Greenfield traveled to Eads to attend the Fireman's Chili supper.  Her name was drawn at the Health Mart drawing and she won a Santa Claus cookie jar.

The Plainview School Board hosted a dinner for the staff Saturday evening at the Towner Community Hall.  The meal was prepared by the 4-H club.  After dinner, a gift exchange was held, with there being many incidents of stolen gifts.  Everyone had a great time.  Thanks to all who made the evening enjoyable.

Saturday evening, Carol and Lori Shalberg joined many friends and family members as they gathered at the home of Jerry Weber to celebrate his son Quinton's 21st birthday.  Happy Birthday Quinton!!

Carol Shalberg traveled to Hugoton Friday to watch her grandson Dawsen play basketball.  He is a senior this year, so his high school career is about to wind down.

Michael Barton hosted a birthday party in honor of his son Shawn's 16th birthday Sunday afternoon at the Towner Community Hall.  Lots of family and friends came to help Shawn celebrate. Happy 16th Shawn!

We have ball games this week and then they are done until we come back in January.  The Christmas program will be Monday, December 18.  Can't believe this year is almost over.

I know that not everyone got the snow, but it was great to look out Thursday morning and see everything white.  It didn't last long, but at least we know it can snow.

Don't forget, the Senior Citizens have pecans for sale at $13 per bag.  Contact Barb Wilson or Sharon Scott.  Have a great week!
