  • The residents of Atria Elizabethtown made a difference this holiday season. The residents collected toys, baked Christmas cookies and made hats for people in need. They delivered the cookies to the Wounded Warriors at Fort Knox and toys to SpringHaven Domestic Violence Shelter. The residents agreed that the joy of giving makes Christmas special. The hats found new homes on a local oncology ward.

  • The Woman’s Club of Elizabethtown held their December monthly meeting on Dec. 6 at the Brown Pusey House with President Betty Sue French presiding.

    Clay Guthrie of Dadants Beekeeping in Frankfort presented a program on honeybees. He discussed the importance of honeybees to the food supply and how women have been keeping honeybees as a business for centuries.

  • Amedisys Home Health agency hosted the monthly case management meeting in November for medical companies and facilities in Hardin and surrounding counties medical companies and facilities.

    Warm Blessings Executive Director Linda Funk spoke about the Warm Blessings mission to serve people living in poverty with dignity and compassion.

  • When children are home on Christmas break, sometimes you can run out of things to do. It’s always a great idea to head to the kitchen and make some fun treats.

    Pinterest has plenty of ideas to choose from. But sometimes, including the two I chose, there only is a photo to go by with no recipe instructions.

  • As I write this column, on Dec. 18, it is exactly one week until Christmas. Our mail lady brought three packages to the front door today. Gee, I thought I was through wrapping presents.

    When thinking about what to write this week, I became nostalgic and wondered what I wrote in columns at this time of the year during the last seven years. Two years I wrote memoirs without recipes. This week I present to you a collection of favorites from 2006, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012.

    Hello to all. I don’t really have any news this week. Just thinking over the year gone by. This year has gone by fast in a lot of ways but then some days slow as Christmas. Yes, I know that is the season we are in now. There are so many things that run through my head.
