Because the meeting was to honor the 50th Anniversary of the club, all charter members were invited to attend. The banquet committee, consisting of Brandy Soileau, Janice Young, and Mary Perry, did a great job of decorating the room and providing beautiful poinsettias that were later given away as door prizes. President Buddy Wood read the names of each charter member and reminisced about past fundraisers. Stories were told of selling fruit, annual pancake suppers at Many High School, rummage sales, mud rides, concession stands, fashion shows, and various other service projects.

Viewing slated for Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love

It’s a story that will warm your hearts and help your family to understand the true meaning of Christmas. In 1955 East Tennessee, the Parton children make a momentous decision to forego their “store-bought” Christmas presents so that their father can afford to give their mother the wedding ring that she has always wanted.

Unwilling to see his children face such deprivation, Robert Lee Parton takes a job in a coal mine several counties away so that he can make enough money to buy the ring himself and still allow his children to have their desired gifts, but this takes him away from home just before the arrival of a snowstorm worse than the area has ever seen before.
