Mayfair and District News: Speers United Church welcomes all denominations Dec. 24

Two milestone birthdays celebrated.

MAYFAIR — Mullingar active farmer, Gordon Kennedy, celebrated his 90th birthday last week. He is kept busy this winter, feeding cattle and doing all farm work associated with animals. He has several children who live nearby who can check up on him. Happy belated birthday greetings, as one can see you certainly aren’t retired. Another birthday celebrant Dec. 22 is 91-year-old Norman (Colleen) Wicks of Speers. I’m sure their phone will be ringing off the hook. Hope you have a great day, Norm.

The United Church in Speers is holding an interdenominational Christmas service Dec. 24 at 7:30 p.m. Locals love to support this small village church. There is always a service on Sunday mornings at 9 a.m. which includes a children’s Sunday school with crafts and religious scriptures are read. But please remember Christmas falls on a Sunday so the Christmas Eve gathering replaces the 9 a.m. service.

Also, in Speers the live theatrical group will again be performing the March 31weekend with three performances. A large sold-out crowd occurs every year for this hard-working group of entertainers. Nothing like local entertainment with a scrumptious meal to boot.

Wishing everyone a joyous holiday season with the weather warming up a little. Please don’t take the word Christ out of Christmas. Merry Christmas to all.
