Zion United fills for annual sausage supper

By Carol Spicer.

For many, the holiday season started with the annual sausage supper at Zion United Church at Womack on Saturday, Nov. 30, when the community, families from near and far, and friends gathered in the holiday spirit. After 51 years of planning, organizing, and orchestrating the annual Zion United Church Sausage Supper, it seems that it would be easy; however, when one takes into consideration the last week of preparations the task seems insurmountable.

Winter Wonderland

By Carol Spicer.

The fifth annual Scholarship Variety Show opened Friday night with a different twist and beautiful violin music by Tamara Katamadze of the Republic of Georgia who came to the Texas three years ago to study at Baylor. She was accompanied by Waco musicians, Jim Chase, Scott and Hanna Vaughn and Lee McAtee. Following their performance, the Clifton High School Jazz Band directed by Keith Zuehlke performed several Christmas songs as a prelude to the opening of the Santa’s elves, Santa’s workshop, and a sleigh ride with the Bacette reindeer.

Hard Core Santas

By Simone Wichers-Voss.

Even a severe weather alert, with snow, sleet and freezing rain in the forecast did not deter 57-year-old Bobby Joe Teeter and his 24-year-old daughter Tiffany to participate in a motor cycle run last Sunday. Why would they want to endure frozen hands, feet and faces just for a ride from McGregor to Meridian? “We do this every year, for the past five years,” Tiffany said. “And nothing will stop us. It’s all for the kids; to help those that can’t help themselves.”

Providing token of independence

By Simone Wichers-Voss.

It is immediately apparent that blond-haired, brown-eyed Carson was born to please and serve. He wears a red bandana saying, “Don’t pet me. I’m working.” Intelligent as he is, and welltrained the blond Labrador helps his master, Brandon Doyle with opening doors and drawers, pressing elevator buttons, picking up keys, putting on lights and signaling for help.

Our Savior Serves

By Carol Spicer.

The 64th annual Smorgasbord was held at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church at Norse on Wednesday and Thursday evenings, with two seating each evening. While waiting to be seated visitors gather in the sanctuary and listen to Pasty Squyres on the organ offering both traditional Norwegian music, as well as Christmas carols. The first Smorgasbord at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church began in 1949 when the congregation became tired of having to go to the creek for water. The women of the church decided to hold a Smogasbord to raise the funds to install running water into the church hall, piped down from the old parsonage.
