Around Town: Christmas activities abound
Christmas Day is getting closer, as we look at the calendar and the long list of things to get done. While baking gingerbread boys and girls to take to our local village hall open house, I was making mental notes of all the chores left to do. I need an elf! Thanks to our daughters, Pam and Nancy, the tree is now completely decorated. The girls also helped me celebrate my Dec. 6 birthday, by inviting me to Cracker Barrel and then to Du Quoin for the Holiday Lights Fair at the Fairgrounds. Very nice!

AROUND TOWN: Christmas activities abound in area
More and more holiday decorations are being seen around town, as well as political signs for the next election, which will be April. It seems our local politicians could have waited until January to install those signs. Let's enjoy Christmas and the reason for the season! • Carnegie Library is always a busy place, but during the Christmas season, they have planned some very special events. For those 18 and over, sign up at the circulation desk on the main floor to participate in the craft of Winter Windows. The event will be at 4 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 11, with all materials furnished for free.
