  • Seven-year-old Malaya Ignacio, daughter of Mark and Thue Ignacio of Elizabethtown, wanted just two things for Christmas. No, not toys or clothes – she wanted to help all orphans get adopted and she wanted to visit and give Christmas gifts to “all grandmas and grandpas at the nursing home.”

  • The Stitchers Quilt Guild ended a great year with their annual holiday party that included a meal and gift exchange. Then, as has become a tradition, they had a Mystery Quilt Workshop that was taught by Christina Cooper, pictured. Everyone was given fabric and cutting requirements in advance and then worked on small sections at a time. When the mystery unfolded, everyone had a beautiful scrappy star quilt, which goes with the theme of 2012 – “Year To Slash Your Stash and Scraps.” 

  • Central Hardin High School students Samantha Stevenson and Jared Cromartie were student guests at the Elizabethtown Rotary Club meeting Jan. 17.

  • Joseph Francis Vaillancourt died Jan. 31, 1972. He was my dad, Daddy, and along with being my father, he was just a wonderful friend.

    It is hard to believe we lost him 40 years ago. He has been dead longer than I knew him — I was a 23-year-old with my own apartment, my own car and in my second year at West Hardin High School, teaching home economics.
