Mmm! It’s Girl Scout cookie time
The Macedonia Girl Scout Troop had its 2013 Cookie Rally on Jan. 11 and cookie sales are under way.
They are collecting cookies for the troops as well to support our military. The cookies are always very delicious, and it is nice to help the military to enjoy some of them while letting them know we are thinking about them.

Hood Chapel UM News
Hood Chapel UM Church had its Children's Christmas Program in December. It was about the birth of Jesus, and all the children really did great.
Jodi Nobles and Jennifer Brown directed the children. There was a large turnout of family and friends attending the play.
After the program everyone went to the fellowship hall for refreshments and for the children to see Santa and receive a gift from him. Everyone had a wonderful time.
On Dec. 31, the church had a Covenant Renewal Service and after the service they had a barrel fire, and ate hot dogs, chips and marshmallows.
The Macedonia Fire Department’s recent raffle was won by Jerry Hush. The prize was a shotgun. Congratulations to Jerry.
Happy Birthday from Providence Baptist Church to Henry Reilly (Jan. 6) and Jan Teuton (Jan. 11).
