Over Thanksgiving our house was full. Orvis had his daughter Lisa, Robert and the grandkids Trent and Thomas. I (Bonnie) had my daughter Donna and granddaughter Bridgett Alferdo and the boys Tomas and Marco. So we had grandchildren and great-grandkids. Stephanie, Robert and Orvis spent two days getting wood in. It was quite a load.
The Reynolds gave a birthday dinner for Chris Garren. It was a surprise to Chris, as her birthday was Thanksgiving Day. Orvis and I were there. Others were Mike Rainwater, Debbie Grey and daughter Joy Haines from Enterprise.
Iris Mallory also had a house full over the holiday. There were Doug and Jean mallory, Donivan and Sandy mallory, Billie and Rainier Havens, daughter Maichel, and Jason and wife Brook Havens. Were were also Twaine and Jill Sangster, Don and Ann Sangster, Tom and Nancy Sangster and Bernie Garrett and nephew Chad. There were lots of pictures taken and a good time.
The North End Grange will hold its annual Christmas Potluck on Dec. 21 at the Grange Hall. Everyone is asked to bring a can of food for a needy family. The food will be distributed before Christmas.
We have a food basket set up at Shilo in for the holiday. Please come and donate. This will go to a family in the area.
