SPOTLIGHT"

New Year’s resolutions have been a hot topic lately. I’ve heard a lot of talk about them, including our message from the pastor.

There are the usual ones, lose weight, exercise more, quit smoking, do good deeds.

Consider adding some of these:

Get involved in community activities, either by attending and/or helping. The City benefits by all fundraisers regardless which organization sponsors them. Support the fire and ambulance dinners, the Legion fish frys and bingo, all the volunteer projects.

Meet and greet that neighbor you wave at. I hear so often “I don’t know who my neighbor is.”

Attend Council meetings so you know where and how your money is spent. Meetings are interesting.

Get your kids to the Library activities. Great things are happening there.

Visit our downtown businesses. You might be surprised at some of the things being offered. While there, encourage the businesses to become more involved with us.

Don’t wait to get a letter to shovel your sidewalk or clean up your property. Help show pride in our community.

Check out the Kissinger Center. Play basketball or volleyball. Have a party!

HAPPY 2019!
