Church plans Christmas musical

16 years ago

The children and teens at the Easton Wesleyan Church have been working hard for the last two months on their Christmas Program. This year they are doing a musical comedy called “Check out That Star,” where a woman named O’Hare Epstein-Barr is out to destroy every religious display in her city. When she tries to destroy a church creche, she falls asleep and finds herself back in time when Jesus was being born, and discovers for herself the real meaning of Christmas. As she goes back in time, the scenery on stage revolves to reveal the city of Bethlehem. The children tell the story to O’Hare through song and acting. Everyone is invited to come out and discover the real reason why there was no room at the inn. So come join us for a show on Sunday, Dec. 16, at 10:45 a.m. or 6 p.m.

All Easton senior citizens are invited to attend the annual Christmas dinner at the Easton Elementary School cafeteria Thursday, Dec. 13, beginning at 12:30 p.m. put on by the Easton School Department. Enjoy good food and good socializing with good people.
The Easton Kawanis Club will be holding a Christmas party on Tuesday, Dec. 18, at 6 p.m., at the Odd Fellows Hall for all members of the club and their spouses. After the meal there will be a Yankee Swap.
On Wednesday, Dec. 19, the Easton United Methodist Women will hold their monthly meeting at the home of Freda Dionne beginning at 10 a.m. Bring a bag lunch and join in after lunch with creating cookie trays for some Easton people for Christmas.
On Thursday, Dec. 20, at 7 p.m. the Easton Jr./Sr. High School will host their annual Holiday Concert.  The All-Aroostook Music Festival will be held in Presque Isle on Jan. 18 and 19, 2008.

Harold (Had) Ireland has been moved from The Aroostook Medical Center into the Skilled Nursing Unit at the Mars Hill Health Care Facility. He will be celebrating his birthday on Dec. 16. Others who will quite likely be spending Christmas in the local nursing homes are Elvira McAdam and Alberta Flannigan at the Presque Isle Health Care Facility; Joan Gray, Freda Langley, and Catherine Ladner, besides Harold Ireland, at the Mars Hill Health Care Facility; and Paul Bradley at the Westfield Boarding Home.

If you have visitors for the Christmas holidays and you’d like the news in the Star-Herald, please call me.  Others who are away enjoy hearing who came home for a visit.
