The Friends of Traphill Branch Library will have a yard sale set up at the Traphill Tan & Tone on Traphill Road on Dec. 5 beginning at 8 a.m. If you have donations for them, drop them off at the Tan & Tone. No clothes please since they don’t have any room for them.

Yale Huie will be preaching at Garden Creek Baptist Church on Dec 6, weather permitting, at 9 a.m. and the Crabgrass Band will be singing. The bridge on the Longbottom Rd near Grissel Tail Road is being replaced so you need to use the Grissel Tail Road or the John P Frank Parkway Road. I heard that the road will be closed about six weeks to replace the bridge.
Traphill Baptist Church will have a Hanging of the Green on Sunday, Dec. 6 at 6 p.m. Refreshments will be served in the fellowship hall after the service. Pastor Mike Caldwell invites everyone to attend.
