Gattons come to Cowan bearing gifts, greetings


People are busy in various ways making plans for Christmas shopping and all the other things that we enjoy during the Christmas season.

Many of us have happy memories of the past over the years.

Several attended church at Little Cowan on Sunday. The children have been busy learning the parts for their Christmas program.

Elder Brad Dutton and his wife of Louisa, attended church at Little Cowan. It’s always good to see them.

We are glad Mr. Bill Banks is feeling better after being pretty sick for awhile.

Our sympathy to Mrs. Dorothy Caudill and the Basham family in the death of their brother, and to the other families whose loved ones will be gone this year.

Bob and Christine Gatton came to Cowan bearing Christmas greetings and gifts to friends and relatives. They enjoyed spending the night with their Aunt Elsie. Carl Bennett and Marsha brought them a good dinner, and they attended church Sunday morning and the Sunday School program in the evening. It was good to have them.

The Sunday School’s Christ- mas program was delightful and moving. It was well attended.

We got to meet little Li Fu when she came in with her mother, Jenny, for her Uncle Harding Ison’s funeral. She is an adorable little girl who ‘likes hugs’ and gives them freely.

The cousins had their annual Christmas thing at their Aunt Virginia’s. Though their number keeps getting smaller, they still have a hilarious good time. Minerva came from Indiana. She and Russell spent a few days on Cowan. Thelma was able to visit a little while she and Glennon were here.

Saturday night, Linda Lucas and Doris Banks went to Mayking Baptist Church with Anna and Deane Yonts. They were warmly welcomed by everyone, and enjoyed a wonderful meal and beautiful singing by Master’s Harmony.

All of her friends on Cowan want to wish Henrietta Adams a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year.

The Cowan Homemakers had their Christmas party at the beautifully decorated home of Virginia Brown. They had a delicious potluck dinner, enjoyed some games and a gift exchange. Later in the week they delivered poinsettias to two new members who were unable to attend, Madge Combs at Letcher Manor and Jeanette Day at home.

Billie Ann Gilley went to the County Homemakers get-together at the Extension Office. She reported a good time with about 40 attending.

Congratulations to Verna Rayburn on winning a lovely hamper woven and donated by Frances Whitaker for the Ovarian Screening Project.

It was good to see Martha Ann Wenning, who visited relatives while she was on Cowan.

Cammie Gilley had a Christmas luncheon for friends and family at her home. There was plenty of food and fellowship with Pat Robinson, Diana Gilley, Miranda Bentley and Hayden, and Elizabeth Fairchild.

Happy birthday to Kylie Grace Cornett of Berea, who will be six on Jan. 2. She is the greatgranddaughter of Bennett and Linda Combs. Birthday wishes also to Bill Jones on Jan. 1. He lives in Naples, Fla.

Carl Bennett and Marsha have been busy getting ready for Christmas.

We haven’t had much snow so far. A white Christmas is pretty, but not so good for traveling.

Love and best wishes to all.
