It's been a bad week for two of our neighbors. Ruth Fees fell a week ago today and broke her arm. She underwent surgery on Monday to set the arm. Howard Votruba fell last Thursday at the fire station in Sheridan Lake and broke several bones in the top of his foot and bruised a leg badly. He will be seeing a surgeon on this Monday to have surgery. We wish the best for both of you and a fast recovery.
Susan Greenfield, Jeanie Smith and Kyle Scott and I helped run the movie theatre in Eads on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings. Enjoyed seeing several friends there. The Plainview School children will all be going to Eads on Tuesday to watch the "Snowball Express" as their Christmas treat.
Several people attended the Christmas Basketball Tournament in Lamar on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Congratulations to the Kit Carson girls team and the Holly boys team on taking home the Championship trophies.
Dick, Kyle and I went to Pueblo on Friday to do the rest of our Christmas shopping. There was lots of people with the same idea. Don't think I've ever seen that much traffic in Pueblo before.
Corby, Kathy, Lexi, Casey, and Jordan Knutson and Jerry and Quinton Weber joined Denis and Theresa Weber at their home to celebrate an early Christmas. Jordan Knutson was home from China to visit family for a few days.
Benny and Cassie Frey of Eads, hosted an early Christmas dinner for around 24 family members on Sunday. Everyone had a good time visiting and watching the little ones open gifts.
Caitlyn Stum, daughter of Jay and Tara Stum celebrated her 9th birthday on Saturday at the Towner Methodist Church. On Sunday, Ciyana Stum, daughter of Chris and Jennifer Stum, celebrated her birthday. Lots of family and friends helped the two girls celebrate their special days. Happy Birthday Caitlyn and Ciyana!
I mistakenly dialed Robert and Marilyn Hopkins number instead of Cheri Hopkins this evening when gathering news. It was good to talk to Marilyn. They were looking forward to having their children and families for the holidays. If you didn't know, Robert and Marilyn moved to Dodge City from Towner a while back. They are doing fine and send their greetings to everyone.
I also talked to Wilma Evans, who lived in Towner many years ago, as she called my number by mistake. It was good to talk to her and they sent their best regards to everyone here.
The Sheridan Lake Bible Church held their Christmas program Sunday evening. A large crowd attended and enjoyed the program the children put on. Most of the people I called were not home, due to the fact that they were at the Christmas program.
The Plainview Christmas program will be Monday, Dec. 18th and school is dismissed on Tuesday for the Christmas break. The first basketball game in 2018 will be Jan. 6th.
I want to wish every one of my readers a Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year. I will see you again in 2018!!
