What a wonderful concert we had last Sunday. The Rock Hill Alumni Band played Christmas music.

In the absence of Rhonda Pemberton, who was ill, Pat McCoy directed the band. We appreciated everyone who attended.

Today we will have Yokyee Chann, a Chinese exchange student who is staying with Mr. and Mrs. Bob Cleary. She is a wonderful pianist and we are looking forward to her program. It starts at 2 p.m.

On Dec. 6, we will have a concert by the praise band at First Baptist Church. The program will feature vocal and instrumental music. It is at 2 p.m. and again we are looking forward to it.

Then on Dec. 13, Sharon Bradshaw and her choir will visit. We truly have some wonderful programs this season.

For those who haven’t tasted our wonderful apple butter, we still have a few jars left. You may pick up a quart when the museum is open Friday, Saturday or Sunday.

Historical fact: (Being a time of thankfulness we do turn ou­r attention to attending a church of our choice. The following information is taken from “Story of the glorious past—one hundred years) the first churches of the city.
