Page 6 Indian Valley & Mesa News Soime chilly holiday c Well, It .may not look like win- ter has set in yet with our beauti- ful blue skies, but the cold nip l of Jack Frost is def- initely making it feel like winter this week. But, despite the cold tempera- tures and nipping wind, most seem to be get- ting in the holiday spirit in one way or another. Whether it is with deco- rations, holiday events to attend, holiday projects or memories of wonderful Christmases of the pasL I would say our valley is geared up and ready to make new memories this year. That, along with a lot of family and friends, is what makes our area so wonderful. A melodic present Very Happy Birthday wishes go out to Lavonne Conner this week. She has plans to celebrate the special day with her annual spaghetti dinner in Riggins with friends, Bill and Cathi, and of course, Jim. Her birth- day was on Tuesday, December 8, and I'm happy to report that I was able to call and sing to my wonderful neigh- bor early on that morn- ing, and given my "won- derful" singing voice, I'm sure it made her day! Doris Baker was able to make the Indian Valley Improvement 'League party on Wednesday afternoon, and had a wonderful time visit- ing with everyone there. On Thursday, she went down below to do some shopping, and stopped in to see friends, Frank and Mary Shirts in Mann's Creek on her way home. She was very glad she did so, as she discovered that Mary had just been released to home from a hospital stay for pneumonia. Over the weekend she went to McCall, and attended the annual Holiday Happening event with daughter, Judy VanKomen. She said they had a really nice meal and the fashion show held by the children was very creative and lots of fun to watch. Christmas arrange- ments Craig Boll took exchange student, Lukas. out to cut the family Christmas tree this past week, as the Boll household begins preparations for the holi- days. On Friday, Ardis went to Halfway, Oregon for the annual quilt- ing store discount sale, which I understand is quite the event for quil- ters. On Saturday, both Ardis and Craig took Lukas to Boise, where they joined Meagan for some Christmas shop- ping adventures. Cathy and Carrie Veselka had a fun-filled weekend starting on Friday with a visit to Bear Lake. They spent the night visiting with Cathy's dad, three of her brothers and their fami- lies. On Saturday, they continued on to Pocatello to spend the remain- der of the weekend with Sarah, Julie, Jane, Noah and Neal. As always, the visiting with family was wonderful. While Cathy and Carrie were away, Hank and Lanae Veselka were delighted to 'have Dave, .FAMILY EYE CENTER DR.

The elephant in the room Judy Green took time to get her computer and printer to talk to each other again, to attend the Improvement League party on Wednesday. She said she had a great 4ime there, and I under- stand during the white elephant gift exchange, she came home with the most unique gift of all, a banana slicer. I'll be curious to hear if it worksl She also stayed busy working on craft projects and doing some baking for the booth at the Council Craft Fair on Saturday, and worked a few hours for her TOPS group in that booth. Allen and Louise Buchanan were delight- ed to have daughter, Joy Thomson, husband, Bob and granddaughter, Chelsea visit them from Gladstone for two days this past week. Louise says they didn't do any- thing special while their company was here, but they enjoyed a good old fashioned family visit, which to me is always the best. Loren Brest has. been playing bachelor this past week as wife, Bridgett, headedto visit her brother in sunny Lompoc, Califomia. He wasn't thinking it was very fair that he got to Bear Facts experience his first cold temperatures in Idaho all alone. Wanna Belle Coriell joined with fellow Rebekah members, Dezi Graham, Phyllis Ware and Ruth Raney, to help with the funeral servic- es for Muriel Joiner in Weiser on Wednesday. The knit-wlts? Connie Hornyak became a "knit-wit': on Friday and joined the group, along with friend, Sherry Poole from Cambridge. Connie has been a diligent student of Della Haberle in learning how to make scrubbies, and her friend showed her how to finish one off, before she made one big enough to put up as a Christmas tree. Earlier in the week, Connie went below to her doctor, and despite what Ron thinks, Connie does have a heart and it is working just flneI On Sunday, she had a surprise visit from her daughter, Shannon and son-in-law, Dave White, who traveled from Boise to make a short, but nice visit to check in on her and her progress with her knees. Connie is happy to report that she is getting stronger every week. Wanda Morgensen has been having a great time decorating her newly cut Christmas tree this past week and as I called on Monday morning, she was just putting on the finishing touches. Other than that, like everyone else, She and Tony have The Adams County Record just been trying to stay warm as this winter cold descends upon us. Poor Harold had to hide on Wednesday, as it was Mary Rininger's turn to host the Indian Valley Improvement League hol- iday party. Mary said it was a great party and all had a good time. Oh, crud! Rusti Schilling braved the traffic and crowds on Thursday to head below to do a little shopping. It probably wasn't a good idea, as she didn't feel quite right as she left, and has been down with a nasty flu for four days, despite getting her flu shots early. Get-well wishes are being sent your way. Larry Boehm and Bev Galloway kept fairly quiet this week compared to their nor- mally busy schedule. They got out to attend the Cuddy Mountain Ramblers Christmas Party at Lakey's Cafe on Thursday, having a won- derful time. On Saturday, they joined lots of other smart people by watch- ing the BSU game in the warmth of their own home. Sunday eve- ning they attended the Christmas concert held at the new exhibit hall in Cambridge. Bev said the singers did a fantastic job, and the two were able to visit with many friends they haven't seen in quite awhile after the concert. Della Haberle was able to escape the house By Lynn Leatherman 257-3907 without John three times this weekl She attended the Improvement League party and had just the best time.

On Saturday, she enjoyed the Council Craft Fair and lunch with friends in Council. Cold weather, warm thoughts As for Roy and I, we have just been doing the same as everyone else this week: just try- ing to stay warm. Other than that, I'm beginning to prepare for a week with my grandchildren from Nampa over the Christmas break and starting to plan some craft and baking projects we can enjoy together. I would like to thank everyone who took the time to help me with my project of sending a Christmas card out to my friend's son, Roy Girrard, or any other sol- dier this year. My friend, Laura Fry was just tick- led to death when Roy called her on Monday evening saying he was bewildered that he has started to receive cards from the area. For any- one that didn't get the address last week, it's: PFC Roy Girrard 80015 Travis Avenue Unit 1 Fort Hood, TX 76544. So until next week, have lots of fun and stay warm.
