Spirit of Christmas is alive here


There are always wonderful events that occur in the Buckeye Lake area this time of year such as White Christmas, Toys for Tots and various fire department toy drives.

One of the lesser known events is the personal giving by Karen and Jim McKittrick. For the last three years that I am aware of, Jim and Karen have provided Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners forpeople that have no one or nowhere to go for these special holidays.

So, on Christmas Day when you are with your families and friends, say a prayer of gratitude for your family and for generous people like Karen and Jim. If you look around, there are many wonderful things going on in our neighborhoods.

What a great place to live. Merry Christmas to all.
