Christmas musical to begin rehearsals

By Bruce Caldwell - Contributing columnist

Director Dan Holland held auditions for our Christmas show last Saturday in his choir room at the First Methodist Church and reportedly assigned parts to about 30 auditioners, which will begin rehearsals now in the same choir room because the auditorium at the Sampson Community Theater is still wet from its recent flooding which will be corrected soon.

Matthews Gifts and Pharmacy has agreed to be a sponsor and we are still seeking one more sponsor. If you are interested let Dan know by calling him at 627-2143.

Thoughts until next week

Real generosity is doing something nice for someone who will never find out.

We have two ears and one mouth so that we can listen twice as much as we speak.

Don’t let those who take advantage of your generosity stop you from being generous.
