MAAG celebrate Christmas
It was a wonderful day of celebration as the Methodist Active Adult Group gathered in Memorial Hall of First United Methodist Church in Ennis on Wednesday, Dec. 8 to celebrate Jesus’ birthday with a Christmas lunch, the sharing of love and special Christmas music, in a beautiful Christmas theme.
An added token of love and appreciation to the MAAG were candy canes and an interesting history of the candy cane. With Dec. 7, 1941 being the day of the attack on Pearl Harbor, time was taken to discuss the history and remember all of those who gave their lives on this tragic day.
A Circle of Love was formed at 11:30 a.m. for a time of prayer and thanksgiving led by Becky Wilbanks.
The menu included baked ham, assorted vegetables and salads, exciting desserts and to top it off, homemade candies.
This gathering was hosted by Hazel Laza and Becky Wilbanks.
Near the Christmas tree stood a beautiful harp and as the lunch time ended, this harp was approached by the talented Kristi Copeland who presented a beautiful musical Christmas program.
She gave a history of this harp and how she became the owner. Her husband, Tommy Copeland is very much a part of her presentations as he sees to it that the harp is properly moved and set up for her.
This couple makes up a special team and the MAAG are truly grateful for the time they could enjoy the work of this team.
In January, the MAAG will gather again in Memorial Hall of First United Methodist Church in Ennis. The date and time will be Wednesday, Jan. 12 at 10 a.m.
The theme will be a winter theme of hot homemade soup and games. The coffee pot will be on and the coffee ready to take the chill off on arrival and assorted table games will begin at 10 a.m. This will be an exciting way to start the New Year.
The MAAG wish each and everyone a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY NEW YEAR.
