Hello All,

Here it is Wednesday evening and our early deadline for the Christmas Day holiday week. I am wishing all my readers a very merry Christmas!

If you have events for the column, please either call me or email.

We are still shoveling away from the last two days snow we got. It is going to rain so much of the snow will surely disappear.

I hope folks are writing up something about your Knox family for the Bicentennial Book that is being proposed. Myrna has been typing up articles, I am told. Our town will be 200 years old in February 2019.

Christmas cookies

My sister Marilyn brought me some sugar cookies; she said it was Nana Doughty's recipe she uses. They tasted good with my cup of coffee. All pretty with red sugar sprinkled on top of each one. I ate too many, but was a good treat. I guess it is OK to get spoiled once in a while.

Belated birthday

Belated happy birthday to Clarence McKenney on Dec. 17. His family came and celebrated with him, and Marilyn. May you have many more.

The Amish store

The Amish Bakery, Community Store and Metal Roofing will be closing Jan.1-20, 2019, for inventory. Opening on Monday, Jan. 21. They will be open Christmas Eve also till 5 p.m. Closed on Christmas. They are on the Thorndike road in Unity.

They have many unique gift selections, canning, cooking, baked goodies, quilts, and much more. Many dishes and tools, and beautiful stoves, furniture as well. If you have not been there, you are missing an awesome place. I love to just look around, too, and see all they have. The raspberry jam is so delicious on my toast, too, by the way. Pay them a visit soon.

First day of winter

Wow, all the snow, cold days and weather, and it is the first day of winter on Friday, Dec. 21. When is spring? (I can dream.)

Christmas Eve

The Freedom Congregational Church with Pastor Paul Flynn will hold services on Christmas Eve at 7 p.m. Last year they had a sing-a-long, and I hope that is planned for the evening, too. Everyone welcome to attend. A very welcoming place.

Knox Historical Society

Our 2019 Calendars are at the Town Office, and Ingraham Equipment. Joyce Thompson has some, as do I. If you are interested, they are $10 each, and we can mail to you for an extra fee. Makes a good Christmas gift, and helps support the historical society.

Thanks to those folks that shared photos with the society. We are looking for photos for 2020.

Until next week,

Stay warm folks, our temperatures are up and down now. Rain is on the way. I hope everyone stays safe out there. Take care all. Let's hope we still will have a White Christmas on the 25th.
