COTTONWOOD Thanksgiving and Black Friday are over. I hope everyone survived! Now we can start thinking about Christmas. The cows are all home so we have something to watch in the pasture up on the hill. They always seem happy to be home.
The VFW will be sponsoring a Sunday breakfast fund-raiser in support of the Prairie Quilters January 22, 2017, at the Cottonwood Community Hall. The proceeds from this breakfast will go toward purchasing fabric or other supplies for the Quilts of Valor for our servicemen. They are selling tickets in advance for an $8 donation. Wouldn’t these be great for birthday gifts or stocking stuffers for Christmas for your families? If you are interested in buying tickets, contact any of the members-Jeanne Arnzen, Shirley Baerlocher, Judy Forsman, Bertie Forsmann, Lynn Sonnen or Debbie Stubbers. Your continued support is so very much appreciated.
A presentation of the Veteran’s Program by the 1st -7th grade will be held at Summit this Thursday, Dec. 1, 10:30 a.m. The public is welcome and a free lunch will be provided to all our guests that day.
A craft fair will be held at the Hangout in Cottonwood on Sunday, Dec. 4, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Space is limited so those interested should call 962-7787 for a no-fee table. This fair is for homemade items only. Those who are not crafty are still invited to come by and support local crafters and do some Christmas shopping.
Cottonwood Gun Club will have their Annual Turkey Shoot on Sunday, Dec. 4. The club opens at 8:30 a.m., and shooting starts at 9 a.m. Purchase of a $40 card guarantees a win. Bacon and Beverage birds will be thrown. Bring the family for a fun day of shooting!
Dec. 11 the Knights of Columbus will have their breakfast at the KC Hall from 7 to 10 a.m. Come and enjoy good food. That evening will be the Lighted Christmas Parade. Make plans for that also.
