Joy of the Season is here.
Christmas is on the way.
First snow today, Tuesday 6 December 2011.
On Friday 2 December 2011, I went to the Red Hats For Jesus, High Tea at the Garden Tea Room in Rogersville. It is located in HOMETOWN FURNITURE STORE. Wonderful time with these lovely ladies. Twenty-four in attendance. Delicious catered food, the room was set up beautifully for us. Singing, conversations and prayers. Good food, good friends what more could we ask?
Saturday 3 Dec., was Ozarks Romance Author's Meeting and Christmas Party. Great fun.
Allison gave us a glimpse at her "steam punk" novel, in critique hour.
Monday, 5 Dec., Elsie Myers and I got together to write on a story together. Her home is decorated so warm and cozy for Christmas.
We are hoping to grow our Writers group. Please join us for our next meeting.
Wednesday 7 December 2011 (PEARL HARBOR DAY), Mabel Masters will speak for THE QUILL AND INK CLUB. We meet at the Webster County Library at 3 PM. Please Join Us.
Mabel has compiled the Northview Book and it's proceeds are going to the Historical Society Museum that is located in the Historical Carnagie Library Building at the Corner of Jackson and Clay Streets in Marshfield. The Carnagie Building celebrated its 100 Anniversary this year 2011. It is empowering to know that our Webster County Library system is still going strong 100 years later. We have had really good leadership. Terry York, has added many programs to our newly re-decorated large library. Knitting and sewing, computer classes and iris card making,a music program for young people, and many other interesting ways to give people the incentive to use the library on a regular basis.
