“Sharing your Blessings makes room for more.”

Members and guests of the St. Libory American Legion attended the Legion Christmas Party Friday evening at the St. Libory Legion Hall, being a potluck dinner, can you imagine the variety of dishes? Santa made his yearly visit and handed out presents to the good girls and boys. At least, I guess, they were all good Friday evening! A number of poinsettias were given as attendance prizes!

Steve and Gina Droege attended the St. Louis Blues and Tampa Bay Lightening Hockey game at Scottrade Center Thursday evening. An exciting hockey game with Blues winning 5 -4.

Did you miss the Country Christmas Stroll at Okawville over the weekend? Attendees came from near and far to join in all the Holiday Festivities.

Please keep Jill Borrenpohl Borgmann and Louis Steinkamp in your prayers.

Gina Droege met Cindy McHenry at St. Louis Lambert Airport Saturday afternoon, after Cindy had spent the week visiting friends in Milwaukee.
