Garlands hung on Saturday a.m.

Members of the Bluffton Volunteer Fire Department will string Main Street garlands on Saturday morning, Nov. 14, according to Dan Bowden, fire chief.

Bowden said that if a rain date is needed, the garlands will be strung on Saturday, Nov. 21, instead.

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.
