Time to Read

If you don't have a list of books ready to read soon, your public library will assist you.
There's one list of 10 books to read online, including old favorites A Tree Grows in Brookland, Fables, and Where'd You Go, Bernadette along with seven other books you must read.

Barbecue

The Lebanon Fire Department Barbecue is set for Saturday, Jan. 19 from 3 until 6:30 p.m. at the Lebanon Community Center located at 1188 Lebanon Road.
Plates will cost $7 each, whether you eat-in or carry-out. Enjoy a great meal and help a good cause.

Garden Club

The first meeting of the New Year for the Belle Isle Garden Club was held on Jan. 8.
Hostesses Linda Rounds and Jackie Cravens served a delicious lunch for members and guests in the fellowship hall at the Presbyterian Church in Pineville/Eadytown.

Meeting

The first meeting of 2013 of the BEC-Wire Board will be held at noon on Monday, Jan. 28, in the community meeting room of the BEC in Moncks Corner.

Genealogy

Another good hobby is family genealogy. If you are not familiar with some of the branches of your family tree, this may be the year to begin.
Three cousins came to check on their family tree in a cemetery in Cross last Friday. Sherry L. Mitchum Peters of Columbia, Frances M. Webb of Summerton, and Iris Mitchum, now in Columbia , came researching the Mitchum family of Berkeley County.
These ancestors of the three cousins were found in the cemetery at Friendship U.M. Church.
Do you know where any of your ancestors are buried, and why should it matter at all to you? If you don't know where you came from, do you know where you are and where you're headed?

Holiday Gathering

Debbie C. and Chad Clarke recently hosted a large family holiday group with the featured dish being fried turkeys with many delicious side dishes.

Fish Fry

Friends of the Freemans always welcome an invitation to join them for a fish fry. Blaine Tingley did the cooking of the fish and hush puppies, with supervision from Ellison and Clinton.
The ladies visited in the outdoor kitchen while the men cooked. It's always a treat for the females not to have to prepare the menu or do the usual cooking … or perhaps suggest the possibility of eating out!

Get Well!

Jewel C. Weatherford has moved from the hospital to a nursing /rehab facility nearby. Juanita Cross is in ICU for the second time.
Harold Chestnut is a resident at the St. Stephen Nursing Home, and Lina B. West and her sister Maude B. Flood are residing at The Presbyterian Home in Summerville.
All of the above and all with flu, which is running rampart now, would welcome a phone call or a personal note of encouragement in the mail.
