While I couldn’t attend, I hope you were able to enjoy the Firth Annual Community Christmas and visit from Santa on Saturday night. I heard there was fun carolling and good food at the restaurants.


That’s a great way to get in the Christmas spirit.


This time of year is so busy that it would be nice to simplify. However, there are always many activities  that take up our time. That is my goal, though, to simplify a little more each year. What do you do to make more time and enjoy the season more? I am sure we would all enjoy your tips.


Senior Diners will meet on Dec. 11th for a meal of Italian casserole, garlic whipped potatoes, country blend vegetables, Vienna bread and mandarin oranges. The group will be playing bingo after lunch. Ilene Docter’s birthday will be celebrated (15th).


Birthdays for this week: Brandi Sullivan, Kyle TerMaat (9th); Terran Goering (10th); Izabella Hays (11th); Samantha Henderson, Steve Null (12th); and Doyle Peterson (13th). Brent and Aspen Emery are celebrating their anniversary on the 9th. If you or someone you know would like your birthday or anniversary honored here, please contact me at the above telephone number or email.


If you have any interest in being on the Firth Planning Commission, contact the Village Office at 402-791-5544. They have one vacancy. The commission meets on the fourth Tuesday of each month at the Village Office. You must reside within the Firth Village limits.


There will not be a meal at Living Life Reformed Church on the 6th. The God’s Kids Club Christmas Program will be at 7 p.m. There will be a time for cookies afterwards. Prepare for Christmas carrollers on Dec. 10 at 4:30 p.m. LLRC groups will serenade around Firth and bring soup to shut-ins. Everyone is welcome. Soup will be served at church after the carolling.


As Christmas nears, think about what you can do for those less fortunate. Don’t forget about the elderly who may be in an assisted living or nursing home. You can be the sunshine to their day.


As Dale Evans said, “Christmas, my child, is love in action. Every time we love, every time we give, it’s Christmas.
