    Preparing for a
    Voice From The Pew
    When I was a kid, I remember watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade on TV. I don’t remember thinking it was grand and glorious, although it was and is. I think I remember it because it was one of a few mornings that I got to spend in front of the TV. This was back when we only had three channels to watch, or four if you could pick up the local public station. Cartoons were on Saturday mornings only, which normally were spent at the farm. That was back when we raised hogs. If you know anything about those critters, you know they require work and religion, but that is another story.

    One of the things taking place in Washington, D.C., is the holding of hearings in the House of Representatives to determine if there is evidence to attempt the impeachment of President Trump. We have been told that some of the evidence is hearsay, which means it is second hand. This means it is unreliable and probably not true.

    Bunceton School hosts Santa’s Closet
    BUNCETON- The second annual Santa’s Closet was held in the old gymnasium at Bunceton School Saturday, Dec. 7. Donations were given away for free to anyone who came to the event. Students from three classes came in on Friday, Dec. 6, to help sort the donated clothes, kitchen supplies and toys that were given away. Dawn Kuster, organizer of Santa’s Closet, said there was a very large turnout and not a bit was left over. The gymnasium was full of so much that families will have a wonderful Christmas this year. Dawn wishes to thank everyone for all the donations and the helpers who set it all up and assisted during the event. I am positive that we should thank Dawn for coming up with this idea and making it all possible.
    Staying busy with grandchildren and holiday activities
    SYRACUSE- All the Thanksgiving activities are now over and everyone is focused on Christmas. Joan and I enjoyed watching the Lady Cardinals basketball team play in the Tipton Tournament. Our granddaughter, Myra Claas, is playing on the team and I suspect that we will attend all the home games. Joan tells me that the grandkids keep you young and I suspect that is true since you have to keep up with them and do not have time to sit down.
