November has proven to not be outdone by the other months of 2020! There has been a spike this month in Covid-19 cases for Gilliam County. With this new information the Alkali Crafters made the tough decision to cancel their first Holiday Bazaar. Unfortunately, with the Arlington School District having to send the K-2 cohorts to remote learning and with Thanksgiving right after. Organizers felt it best to try to prevent any more spread. Our community is too important to take the risk, I would have to agree with their decision.
Five brave Arlington Silhouette shooters faced off this past Sunday in the cold with Gary Grossmiller taking 1st and Burt Jenkins second. I’m late to report on some Bridge Club stats. Earlier this month Jeannie Kirksey hosted. High score was won by Darlene Deen, the Second-High score was Kathy West and the low score was Alene Rucker. Traveling was won by Darlene and nobody boasted the slam.
Winners for the Lions Pig Raffle are Sally Drinkwine, Tim Golightly, Wayde Johnson and Megan & Bill Proctor. Thank you to everyone who purchased a ticket for this raffle.
Don’t forget with the early darkness of this time of year and clear cold nights we have one of the best opportunities to view some spectacular celestial events! In the Eastern pre-dawn sky on Friday Nov 13th, the pretty crescent moon will sit adobe Mercury and below much brighter Venus. Look for Virgo’s brightest star Spica, sitting off to the moon’s right and the very bright star Arcturus way off to the upper left.
