Continue To Bask In The Glow Of The Holiday Spirit

Luna News
By Kaye Mindar

With the UPS, Fed-Ex and the post office now being my best friends, I have decided that the Christmas crunch is official. I am trying to take the time for special cards and letters and I know that I will inevitably forget someone, but my heart is full even if my wallet is not.
I have been making a DVD of old home movies and I do not mind taking the time to edit it, and watch it over again. Christmas was difficult for my parents with six children. There were years when they did not get anything for each other, so that Santa could make his visit. There is one clip where my mother holds up a jar of bath beads. I remember spending five dollars on that gift at the local grocery store, but the expression on her face is worth a million dollars, and love connected with it is priceless. I am so grateful that it was captured forever on that home movie. Those kinds of feelings are all I really need for Christmas.
Congratulations to Kassi Laney on her recent Master’s degree accomplishment, and Jessica Swapp on her recent Bachelor’s degree. We are very proud of our students who achieve such hard earned higher education accomplishments. Jessica came home with more than a diploma - and we wish her and her fiancĂ© Matt all of our best as they make wedding plans.
Christmas Dinner
The annual Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints Christmas dinner, with special program and guest, will be held at 6 p.m. this Friday evening. Please bring your family and friends and a favorite dessert to share. This tradition is always a wonderful evening for socializing and a seasonal delight.
Christmas Music
The night of sacred music held last Sunday evening was a wonderful night of community and family, and we would like to thank Alberta Nicolds for all of her hard work and dedication to make it happen.
These programs are something that we hope to see continuing for all in Luna and our communities.
Preparedness Corner
The final canning day for the year was a great success. There is no word yet on the next canning session, although you may contact Joyce Laney for due dates of the next orders. We are preparing a new weekly series for the Mountain Mail of simple steps to follow in getting your family more self sufficient.
This is for everyone and we encourage every little step you can take in preparing - from starting slow, to expanding on what you have already acquired.
Genealogy Corner
While the Luna Family History Library has been closed due to computer problems, there are still people to help. Please contact Phyllis Price or Naomi Martineau. The Web site has grown by leaps and bounds. It has even been announced by the L.D.S. Church that technology and progress have surprised them in the nearly half a million names that are being added daily. Once again, we will provide tips in this column beginning in January.
Quote of the Week:
Just wanted to remind you, that sometimes success is better measured in smiles received, giggles heard, and hands held, than in dollars earned, deadlines met, and pounds shed.”
