The Tellico Plains Public Library is
sponsoring a food drive through Dec. 5. Sandy Snyder, library
director, stated that, "We can all help those who are truly in
need, even if it's just with a can of tuna." When they
bring non-perishable food items to the library, donors can be entered
in a drawing to win a $50 Walmart gift card by giving their names and
phone numbers to the library staff member on duty. Each item
donated earns one chance to win the gift card. All food will be
donated to local food banks on Dec. 6. For more information please
contact the Tellico Plains Public Library, phone 253-7388.
Rafter Friends Church in Tellico will
hold its annual live Christmas nativity from 5:30-7:30 p.m.,
Saturday, Dec. 8. Drive through and witness the life of the Lord,
from birth to resurrection. Live characters in each scene.
Refreshments will be available. For info, call 253-5588.

Thank you to everyone that is sending
email to me for printing. I really appreciate your help. Please
send any monthly meeting information to me. Sometimes I will
forget that your organization has a standing meeting on a certain day
of the month, such as a Ruritan meeting on the second Tuesday.
I want this column to be for you. I enjoy letting everyone else
know what is important to Tellico and area readers.
You can e-mail me at
