A new organization has been started at Macedonia Middle School by School Resource Office Deputy Goodwin.
This group of students was handpicked to help Deputy Goodwin keep the school safe and orderly. Students perform duties such as making sure school doors are locked, picking up any litter they see, making sure all lockers remain closed when not in use, and periodically patrolling the restrooms.
Deputy Goodwin, who chose these students from many applications, says they are his extra eyes and ears around the school during the day.
The Macedonia Community Action Project would like to thank all who donated food and time to the decorating of the community Christmas tree on Saturday, Dec. 7.
Also they would like to thank the fire department for the use of its building. And most of all they would like to thank all of those who braved the cold and rainy weather.
There was a good turnout and the little children really enjoyed talking with Santa and receiving the candy package he gave each one.
There was signing, and Pastor Reggie Thames told the story of Jesus. Pastor Bill Tanner spoke and gave prayer.
There was a countdown to the tree lighting and then everyone had refreshments. It was a nice time of joy and fellowship.
Once again, thanks to all.
