Once again, I want to remind you about the Wild Game Supper at Sidonia, it’s that time again. For those of you who don’t know about this, it is a fundraiser for the Sidonia Fire Department and is an annual event. They serve deer, beaver, rabbit, squirrel, duck, coon, fish, alligator, wild and tame turkey! They also have dressing, beans, slaw, and all the trimmings to go with the dinner, including something to drink. It will be at the Sidonia Fire Department on Jan. 26 this year and will begin at 5 p.m. The cost is a donation, which is accepted at the door. This is one of the main fundraisers for the Sidonia Fire Department, and all proceeds go to them, the people in the area prepare the food and do not receive any money for doing so. It is a 100 percent profit for the Sidonia Fire Department, so let’s all go out and support them. I promise you will find some very delicious foods, desserts, and fellowship at this event. If you have any questions regarding this event, you can call 973-4575, 973-5501, 973-4455, or 973-4008. So let’s go out on Jan. 26 to show our support!
Remember the Sharon Corn and Music Festival that we began last year? We have set the date for this year’s event. It will be Sept. 14-20. The committee has already begun meeting and is looking for suggestions, volunteers, and sponsors for this year’s event. If you have a suggestion, can be a volunteer or sponsor of this event, please contact our chairperson, Donetta Davis at 456-2901 or contact me by phone or email. Last year’s event was a great success and we want this year’s event to be even better. Feel free to contact us with your suggestions and we hope to have a lot of volunteers to make this a great success!
My stepmother, Sally Lassiter is back in the hospital after a short stay at home. She has an infection in the surgical site and must receive antibiotics by IV. Please continue to lift her and my grandmother up in your prayers, as my grandmother is at the hospital with Sally. God has definitely blessed her during her last hospital stay and her brief stay at home. He is still touching her with His healing hands and will see her through all of this! Your prayers are greatly appreciated!
Please don’t forget that it’s time for PTO’s Trivia Night at the Sharon School Gym. I would love to have Donetta say that this is the best trivia night ever! Be sure to tell her you saw it in my article! Trivia Night will be on Saturday, Feb. 2 beginning at 6 p.m. Each team will consist of six to eight players, with 20 categories and five questions in each category. Cory Sawyers will be the Trivia Host for the evening. There is a small cost of $5 per person to participate in the trivia contest. There will be food and fun available for the whole family. Come on out and plan to eat supper with us. Door prizes will also be given out! For more information, call Donetta Davis at 456-2901. All proceeds benefit the Sharon PTO.
For a January calendar, call Shirley Chappell at 456-2213 and she can tell you what’s set up for the month at the Center. She prepares calendars with all the monthly events on them and you can pick one up at the Center. Please remember about the potluck luncheons held on the second Wednesday of each month. I believe that I put second Tuesday in last week’s article. The center has exercise equipment and games and is ready for us to enjoy! They play cards every day and dominos so why not come on out and meet the other seniors in our community?
Mark Carrington and Jennifer Davis both have birthdays on Jan. 28! Randy Gaylord has a birthday on Jan. 29 and James Tackett on Jan. 30. The Sharon community wishes each of you a very happy birthday.
Well, for today, that is “all the news that is news” from the Sharon community. Please continue to send your information to me so that I have information for this article. Without our community, I have nothing to write about! Remember to continue to pray for the military, your neighbors, and that God will have mercy on our land!
