Our thoughts and prayers go to the families of Mary Patton, Ken Meade and Lena Allard. Several from the area are in the hospital or have been in the past few weeks. They are Steven McComsey, Clarence Beattie, Neil Hitchcock, Cathy Hitchcock, Verna Knickerbocker, Marty Montena and Ralph Hitchcock. Ron Allen took his mother-in-law, Emma Parsons to Vermont one day last week. They enjoyed the day together. Many in the area enjoyed Martin Luther King Jr day off from work and school. So many spent the afternoon at Little Gore with the tubing and other activities that were offered. Ten Ladies and seven children enjoyed a couple hours learning to weave with straws in the fellowship room at the Sodom Community Church on Saturday. Martha Person did a great job showing how to do this. On Saturday, Nicholas Persons fell and broke his arm. He was happy he got to have hot dogs out snowmobiling first with his dad and twin brother. Kjerstia Schilinski visited Lila Harrington on Thursday morning. There will be a new Bible study starting on Feb. 3 in the fellowship room at the Sodom Community Church. This study will be on the book of Revelations and others books going along with this topic. Annabelle Millington had to have surgery this week. Jim and Cathy Hitchcock's garage was damaged early Saturday morning from a truck accident. Happy Birthday to: Sarah Beth Allen Lay, Shanna Whiteny Schott, Matt Allen, Breanna Hayes, Ona Dunkley (88), Laura Viele, Jenna Farrell, Oliver Dalaba, Hannah Cameron, Dixie Potter, John Denno, Amy Viele, Brian Allen, Ron Grimes, Lauren Whitney, Joan Ross, Ruth Lehrer and Andrew Lamery. Happy Anniversary to Greta and Patrick Johnson. Enjoy each and every day.
