COTTONWOOD We have had snow on the ground for a few weeks now. It was really pretty with the trees all frosted up. An old saying goes, “For all the hot days in summer, there will be that many cold days in winter.” It has been in the single digits for quite a few days last week. Skiers should all be happy. We took some of the grandkids sledding since the temperature was in the high 20s. They had a great time.
Solidarity Crosses are available from the Knights of Columbus. “Christians in the Middle East are facing persecution and even extinction for their belief in Christ.” The KCs are standing in solidarity with them, and to show support they have for purchase the Solidarity Cross, symbols of suffering, unity and hope. Crosses are made in Bethlehem out of olive wood, five inches tall, and made by the displaced Christians. Call Dan or Laurie Karel at 507-0041 or 507-0363. Your $10 donation will go to the Christian Refugee Fund sponsored by the Knights of Columbus.
Annual crab feed tickets are still available. It is sponsored by St. Anthony Society and is scheduled for Jan. 16 at Greencreek Community Hall. Dinner at 6:30 p.m. and dance begins at 9 p.m.
This is back-to-school week. I’ll bet the kids are happy about that! Have you made your New Year’s resolutions yet? Better get with it.
