The EPIC group had their Christmas celebration on Wednesday evening, 41 youth and 17 adults attended.  EPIC will begin meeting again on Wednesdays when school resumes.

The Southern Belles Homemakers Club met Thursday night for their Christmas party at Meadowtop Farm. A carry-in meal began the evening activities. The group played several games of Angel, had a secret pal gift exchange and an ornament exchange. It was an evening filled with fun and laughter.

Mike, Tai, Hudson and Easton Muldoon, Richmond, and Laura Hemmer, Cincinnati, arrived Friday to spend an early Christmas at the family farm. The Muldoons left late Sunday morning for their home.

The Christmas Eve program at the church was well attended and those attending enjoyed the small children with their enacting of the nativity and the older youth in a production called “Code Red:An ER Christmas.” The service concluded with communion and the singing of “Silent Night” by candlelight.

Jeremy and Erin Marshall and family hosted the Hemmer family Christmas at their home following the program at the church. A family gift exchange followed a meal of soups, sandwiches and lots of desserts.

A family gathering took place on Christmas Day at the home of Delores Hemmer.  Forty-one family members shared the evening buffet.
