Sharon Church of Christ entertained widows, widowers

The Sharon Church of Christ once again entertained the widows and widowers of the Sharon area with a chicken and dressing and all the trimmings Christmas dinner. This was the 30th year for the event. Coleman Hamlin greeted everyone and said the blessing of the food. Church members prepared and served the dinner in a gaily decorated fellowship hall. Tables were covered with red damask cloths embossed with poinsettias, Christmas napkins and Christmas mugs filled with holiday candy that were favors for the guests. When the meal ended, each guest was introduced and then names were drawn for door prizes. It just so happened that each one present received one. After the opening of these gifts, Christmas songs were led by James Gary Roberts. He made some closing remarks and said he hoped to see everyone back next year. Those present were Evelyn Ary, Justine Bell, Faye Brewer, Sue Brewer, Rosie Connell, Orla Cothan, Elsie Essary, Robbie Elliott, Roselle Gatewood, David Gaylord, Ophela Hawks, Robert Johnson, Carolyn Lawrence, Norma Moore, Anza Rachels, Dimple Roberts, Martha J. Roberts, Lois Robey, Mertie Smith, George Stricklin, Ophelia Taylor, Pauline Tharpe, Catherine White, Lorene White, Effie Wilson, Linda Woodrough, Martha Mosley, Betty Tate and Aileen Edwards. wcp 12-11-08
