LEGION MEETING
The Lilly American Legion Post 628 will meet this evening at 7:00 PM at the Legion Hall on Jones Street. All post members are welcome at the meeting. Home Association members are welcome at the home meeting that begins at 7:00 PM. All veterans that have served during war time dates are welcome and invited to join the post.

LIBRARY
The Lilly/Washington Public Library will hold drawings at 4:00 PM Friday for items being chanced off recently. The Library is attempting to raise funds to operate as state money has been cut off with the budget crisis. According to librarian Brenda Marsh, fund raisers will continue in the future to maintain operational funds. The library is open Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from 10:00 AM until 5:00 PM and on Saturday from 7:30 AM until 2:30 PM.

My comment: This is another example of your state bureaucrats caring less and less for the small communities. County government officials should get on the band wagon of support for these little libraries.

BREAKFAST WITH SANTA
Don’t forget the Breakfast with Santa being held at the Our Lady of Mount Carmel church hall on Saturday, December 12. Adult and children 6 or older $8; children 5 and under$5. Each child gets a complimentary photo with Santa. Servings are at 8:00 AM and 9:30 AM.

CALENDARS
The Lilly/Washington Historical Society calendars can be purchased at Galls Insurance Agency for $2

CHICKEN WARS
I took notice to the newspaper staff having quite an interest in our local flocks of “wild” chickens. Scott, the artist, added to the merriment with his “wild chicken” movie posters. Maybe we, as a community, could make both the news staff and Scott happier by asking Santa to deliver each of them 11 wild chickens and 1 noisy rooster for Christmas.

BIRTHDAYS
Charlotte Muldoon celebrates her birthday today, December 10 followed by Bill Dunmyer, Barb Martino and Regina Robine on the 11th and Cris Wheeler and Martha Link on the 12th . On the 13th my daughter Natalie and my sister Maureen both get to party along with Bill Hershel Sr., Nicholas Marinak and Ashlee Weakland. The 14th brings cake and ice cream for Elizabeth Wilt and Joseph Digman while Mark Behe, Pearl Fishel, Helen Fordick, Francis Krumenaker, Cecelia Nadolsky, Sandra Ehrenfeld and Lyle Offman party on the 15th and LeAnn Cannonie observes her birthday on the 16th. Happy Birthday to All!

ANNIVERSARY
Edward and Lori Krug celebrate their wedding anniversary on December 15. Congratulations!

OLDTIMER
You are an old timer if you do not believe in Santa Claus.
