I guess the snow lovers are happy this time with the measurable snow we got, with the weatherman talking about a possibility of more this week. Personally I hope his prediction is wrong. But we have to accept what comes, gracefully, I hope.

CHURCH NEWS. The College Heights dartball game with Vine Grove Christian Church was rescheduled for Thursday evening instead of Monday. As I write this on Tuesday, the way the weather looks, they might have to reschedule again. The upcoming Monday game is to be played with the Summit United Methodist Church at home.

The United Methodist Men will meet at 9 a.m. Feb. 15 at Golden Corral. All men of the church are welcome to meet and enjoy fellowship with one with another.

Today is Scouts Sunday and we will be worshiping with a joint service at 11 a.m. Following the service, scouts will host a fundraising spaghetti dinner in the fellowship hall. All are invited. Hope you will participate and support our scouts, I think scouting is a worthwhile organization for our young people.

Out thanks go out to those who have contributed so generously to our building fund. We already have received 27 percent of the $510,500 that was pledged last fall.

Don’t forget our World Day of Prayer on March 7, at the Episcopal Church with Pastor Ellen Morell. The program is written by the women of Egypt.

Hispanic Movie Night each Friday night in memory hall. For further information, call Pastor Freddie, 270-982-3570.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY. Why worry about “crossing the bridge”, that isn’t even there?

HELPFUL HINT. Don’t throw out that left over food, next time you have guests. Make TV dinners for later meals, instead of buying them at the grocery. Also for those living alone who can’t cook, it is a small enough portion of food to be good for only one person.
