Now we are making plans for the Thaksgiving community


WORD OF THE DAY is vocational. Example: The dream of a vocation to ministry was strong in Edward’s heart as he attended seminary school.

SUNDAY’S WORD was noisy. It means vehement or noisy. Example: Henry’s loud opponent in the fencing competition was a real challenge, but he won.

Shoe box delivery

This week, locals are dropping off their shoeboxes with gifts for children around the world thanks to The Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child. But have you thought about what will happen next?

These shoeboxes will be brought to the packing and shipping center in Boone, NC. Organizer Matt Tatum has sought help for this.

For the past few years, he’s brought a group to the Operation Christmas Child treatment center, which he says, in his plea for more help, is “really a fun time”. The MHC group will be on shift from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. on December 2.

The plan is that some people will come down Thursday after work, and others will join them Friday morning. The group will have breakfast and lunch together, as well as sightseeing and shopping, before their work begins. Dinner will then be at the Daniel Boone Inn, and everyone will go home Saturday morning.

Each person will have to pay their own costs, which are approximately $100 for a hotel room and $25 for Daniel Boone’s dinner, plus other meals and normal travel expenses.

He can be contacted by messages on Facebook.

ANSWER TO SUNDAY’S TRIVIA: Four years before Macy’s held its first Thanksgiving Day parade, Gimbels department store held the first Thanksgiving Day parade in Philadelphia in 1920. Gimbels founder Ellis Gimbel had more than 50 employees dressed up to participate in the parade. The theme of the parade was “Toyland”. “Select, don’t settle” was one of the store’s slogans.

THE DAILY QUESTION OF THE DAY: What did we eat at the first Thanksgiving?
