Vendors, are welcome to sell your wares at our Lockhart Christmas Parade, on Sunday, Dec. 3. If you are interested please give me a call at 1-864-545-6652. There is not a fee for this.

Floats

Floats!!! I’ve had a few calls interested in putting in a float for our Parade. There is not an entry fee for putting one in so I hope you will want to make one and join us. We meet at the Lockhart School, and the judges will be around to look at them from 2:15-2:30 p.m. The parade steps off at 3 p.m. We have trophies this year, and they are not small. The categories are: Best Theme, Original and Most Attractive.

Fire Department

The fire department is working on the pole ornaments and we are hoping to get more up then last year. But every bulb has to be tested and replaced, and repairs are being done. It’s a lot of work, and certain ones are working every night, so you can enjoy them. Thanks to Patti and Dale Inman for their commitment.

Christmas Tree

We also have a team working on the Christmas Tree in the parking lot. And the power company has been wonderful to string it up every year. I’ve asked Rev. Sammy Baines to be over this project. Brenda Cameron is the co-pilot.

Special Jobs

Ailene and Brenda Jenkins are getting out all the letters that need to be sent. Everyone has a special job. At our meeting this week, everyone put in their ideas. We had Crystal and Rev. Sammy, Lee and Michelle Brannon, Toby Childers, Brenda C. Dale, and Annette S. join us to pass the book of the tree over to us. We also had the families’ children, who we might put to work.

$300,000 Grant

We got our $300,000 grant to fix the sewage line from the school to the old armory. We are so grateful.

New Employee

Everyone has been asking about the new employee at the Town Hall. Her name is Shelly Conard, married to Brad, who is the son of Joey Conard. She is volunteering and is not on the payroll. She has tons of office experience, and learning the office and the job of Brenda. One day Brenda wants to retire (which we won’t let her). When that happens Shelly will take over and then be put on pay. If anyone else wants to volunteer for anything we will be grateful for your help.

Steaks

Well, Chuck and I joined Marvin and Anita, again, Saturday, at the Chester Shrine Club for steak. Mine was tender this week. Last time, that’s another story. They would have replaced it, but I didn’t say anything. All are welcome, it’s always the first Saturday. of the month, and it’s $15. They also have hamburg steak.

Golf

Chuck told me today, he is renewing his golfing technique. He takes his golf club and hits the golf ball, and his puppy, CJ, runs and catches them and luckily brings them back to him. He does this in the house, probably sitting in his recliner, and hitting them into the kitchen at the stove.

Confession

While standing on line for confession, I overheard a woman whisper to her friend, “I really don’t know why I’m going to confession, I’ve been so busy, I haven’t had a minute to sin.”

Effective

After a worship service, a mother with a fidgety seven year-old told me how she finally got her son to dit still and be quiet. About halfway through the sermon, she leaned over and whispered, “if you’re not quiet, Pastor Charlton is going to lose his place and will have to start his sermon all over again.”

Time Change

Do you like this time change? I go to work in the dark and come home in the dark. But this is the time that I grew up with. We didn’t have daylight saving when I was growing up in the North. I believe my husband told me you had it way before we did.

I probably told this story last year, but anyway. When I was a little girl, we always went to the drive-in movie on Saturday night. So the movie started around 7:30 because it was dark then, maybe it started earlier, but I was a little girl and time meant nothing to me. Well, we would watch both movies and get home around 11. Of course I was asleep in the back seat way before that.

Anyway, the year we had the time change, I went to the drive-in and didn’t get home until around 1 am or 2 a.m. My mother had a fit, she was so mad because I was late coming in. I told her the movie didn’t start until 9 and we watched both, That was the end for a long time of going to the drive-in. Not until I was married and living out of her house.

Well I’m tired and it’s this time change fault. So I’ll say good night. And if you want to help with my hospice box, the time is getting close for me to turn it in, so please help. Call me at 864-545-6652. Call me about putting in a float, vendors, and hospice.

Memorial Angels

I forgot to mention the Memorial Angels that go up on the playground fence every year. If you want one in memory of your loved one that passed, it’s $20 for the first time and $10 after for the upkeep. Call me or Town Hall at 864-545-2103.
