Tom’s Topics

By Tom Hawkins

Here’s hoping everyone had an enjoyable Thanksgiving Day and Thanksgiving weekend!


A reminder that toys and gifts are now being collected for “Santa’s Toy Bank”. “Santa’s Toy Bank” is sponsored by the Farmers State Bank and Citizens State Bank. Unwrapped toys may be left at either bank. Monetary donations are also accepted. Toys are needed by 3 p.m. on Thursday, December 14. “Santa’s Toy Bank” benefit children of the Groesbeck Independent School District. Parents may file for help from “Santa’s Toy Bank” from now through December 14 at either bank.


Coming up December 7 through December 10 will be the 31st year of Christmas at the Fort. Watch for more details next week.


Attention is called to another article in this week’s Journal. That story is about “Return to Bethlehem”.  “Return to Bethlehem” will be presented on December 3 and December 6 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The production will be on the corner of West Navasota Street and Dr. J. B. Riggs Drive.


The weather is very dry. The weather forecast does not call for rain this week. However, yours truly is predicting a good rain very soon!
