Joanne Niswander: On giving thanks

By Joanne Niswander
Most of us, by now, have made plans for where we will be on Thanksgiving Day and with whom we will celebrate. Many families will be getting together, and some of those without families nearby will plan to enjoy the day with friends. It's a day to renew relationships, share good food and watch football games. But it's also a day to celebrate our blessings. Here are a few different ones to think about:


Emmanuel UCC hosts Thanksgiving service

The Bluffton Area Ministerial Association (BAMA) invites the Bluffton Community to a Thanksgiving worship service at 7 p.m., Sunday, Nov. 22.

This ecumenical service of worship will be held at the Emmanuel United Church of Christ, 8375 Phillips Road.

In the spirit of this season, offerings of money and canned goods will be received for the Bluffton Food Pantry.


It's on a white Mustang


The next white Mustang that passes you, check out the plate. It may be Charlyn. We photographed this plate while the vehicle was parked on Franklin Street between the high school and middle school. Anyone who might identify the driver, please make a comment.
