Plymouth Area News for the week of December 11th, 2017 by Joyce Steiner

Santa will be visiting in Plymouth Saturday, December 16th at 10 am at the PCCC.  Everyone may enjoy cookies and punch and children will receive a gift.
I received word that Bill Keene passed away on Thanksgiving.  He lived north of the square and mowed lawns in Plymouth.  He was a nice gentleman. 
Services for Wanda Eddington were held at the PCCC on Monday evening at 7 pm.  I thought this was a really nice idea as it allowed everyone to attend the services.  Pastor Sheri and Don Switzer sang together and I think they would make a great duet.
Tuesday Lima Bn went in for a check up and she is fine.  Good for another 100,000 miles.  She does need new eyelashes however.
Ran to Macomb on Wednesday morning and had my Christmas cards made at Walgreens.  The people are very helpful there.  Started writing them Wednesday afternoon and they hit the mail box during the rest of the week. 
The Plymouth Village Board met on Wednesday evening.  I thought that the most interesting item of business was that the tavern asked to be open 7 days a week including Sunday.  There did not seem to be any opposition to this idea.  Seems to me that in the 10 “suggestions”  there was an idea about “Remember the Sabbath and Keep IT Holy”.  Of course I do antique shows on Sunday sometimes too.
We had seven ladies present for Bible study on Thursday morning.  Good group.  Pat Phelps is leading the study.  We sent a card to Dorothy Torok who has fallen and broken her wrist and hip but who is doing very well.  Hurry and get well Dorothy, we miss you.
If you drive by my home, you will find that the lift is now gone.  Lots of flowers and decorative rock have been beneath its tires but hopefully much will return to normal this spring.  Think there was probably not a better time of year to have the lift do damage.
Trimmed up  a cedar in the corner of my yard and noted that some of the lights on the tree were out so got a new string and put them on the tree.  Of course they were too short and I did not have any to match them so will get more or a new kind of lights for the tree this week.
Went to my first Christmas party today.  Ray and Kathy Goodell of Vermont hosted a lot of us who belong to the Collectors of Illinois Pottery and Stoneware.  Good friends, good food and a good day.  Thanks Ray and Kathy.
Hope everyone is getting their preparations for Christmas almost done.  I do not have gifts to buy but do have food to buy and prepare for my family on Christmas day.  Do not have a large family so should not be too stressful.
Hope you have a great week.  Prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus.  Scatter Kindness.
