I will be at the craft show in the Park downtown in El Dorado Springs. El Dorado is having their Christmas Parade on Saturday, Nov. 21, and they are having a craft show from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m down in the Park building. I will have my banana bread and fudge like I had when the Schell City UMW had before the church closed. I have also done some tea towel sets and dresser scarf sets.

Several from the area attended graveside services for Johnie Miller at the Green Lawn Cemetery in Schell City Thursday, Nov. 12. She grew up in Schell City. She had lived in Nevada for several years.

Hunter Coy of Calhoun spent the past two weeks with his grandparents, Jerry and Karen Coy of Harwood. The grade school at Calhoun was closed when Hunter attended new classes for two weeks.
