Well, we have certainly had some days of wind and cold temperatures, but, if the predictions are correct, Saturday looks like it will be a pretty nice day. That makes for good conditions for all the days plans in downtown Ryan. Be sure to come and be a part of all the action starting at 3:00 pm. I am anxious to see the tree up on the street.
Ryan City Council will be having their regular meeting on December 4th at 6:00 pm. I missed last month’s meeting because I was voting at that time.
There is a blood drive set for December 7th at the Ryan Senior Citizen Center from 3:00 to 6:00.
Our town will be losing a little piece of our history to downtown Denison, Texas. My nephew is buying all of my fountain and the old fixtures and tables that my granddad started within his business. I am glad it is able to stay within the family, even if it doesn’t stay within Ryan. Brian and his wife are both pharmacists and practice in Durant, OK. They have their home in Denison and Brian has just over the last month, purchased a building in downtown Denison, where the fountain and fixtures will make their new home. I am excited for them and the residents in Denison have already been made aware of this fountain coming to their downtown. Brian is wanting to refurbish the old fountain and get it back into working order. Brian ran for a seat on the Denison City Council and there was a tie, and so, when they have a tie, they had a coin flip, and his opponent won the toss. Brian will continue to try to be a part of making plans for Denison. He has gone through some hoops to create some historical markers in Denison, that other people had no interest in making these happen.
Brionna called her grandparents Thursday to wish them a Happy Thanksgiving and found out that her granddad was in ICU in the Denison hospital. We have been asking for prayer for his return to good health.
We took Mom to Denison Saturday to get together with her friend from Ola, Idaho. We had a nice visit with Reeta. The day was wonderful for us to travel over there.
Kim’s news for this week:
On Thanksgiving, I ate plenty. I went with Dad, LeVita and Chin Chin to Cousin Jenny’s. All day we had good weather and were able to be together.
Everyone have a blessed week. Pray for each other.
