No Church services at the Rockville United Methodist Church this past week. The Bishop of the United Methodist Church has closed all the Methodist Churches in this area due to the increasing number of Covid 19 cases.

Mt. Zion Club is canceled for the Dec. 16 meeting due to the increase of Covid-19 in our area.

Thanksgiving Day weather was beautiful in the Mt. Zion area. Most family dinners were much smaller this year as most families chose to stay home.

The Wood Fairies made a visit with a load of wood to Tom and Beverly Pelkey’s home. The Pelkeys kept their appointment for the flu and pneumonia shots. The resident Wood Fairy is waiting for his Santa hat. James and Keren Rosburgh visited Tom and Beverly this last week.

Dixie Peterson has the Covid-19 and is improving slowly. Prayers are welcome.

Over at the Robin Siegismund Farm, things are fairly normal. Belle has decided there is no place like home; because Robin told you to stay home or stay on the leash. Belle is enjoying the cooler weather thinking about trying to make a frost angel, the frost flowers have been beautiful. (Marge note if you have never seen a frost flower up close they are awesome!)

We do have something to celebrate in the Mt. Zion area, Laverne Motley will celebrate her 100th birthday with a drive-through party at her home, from 2-4 p.m. Dec 13. Help her get 100 birthday cards by sending one to Laverne Motley, 3200 SW Hwy. H, Schell City, Mo. 64783.

John and Julia Snethen celebrated Thanksgiving dinner with sons, Micheal Snethen, and Ron Thompson.  Friday they celebrated again in Knob Noster with David and Chryshella Vandivier. Other guests were Larry and Romona Vandivier, Cody and Anna Wright, Breanna Mathis, and Dusty Mathis.
