Milano school will serve its annual turkey and dressing meal on Wednesday, Nov. 11. Cost is $2.50 per plate. Call the high school (512-455-9333) if you would like to order plates to go or eat at the cafeteria. If you plan to eat with your children, call the campus they attend.

We have ill residents in our community that are in need of prayer. Naomi White's mother, Minnie Brown of Rockdale is back at home after a stay in a Temple hospital. John H. Yakesch is in the hospital in Temple and Elroy Butler, father of Milano ISD superintendent Lindy Robinson, is in the Rockdale hospital. We wish them all a speedy recovery.

We extend our sympathy to the Craig Magee family. He passed away at a Temple hospital on Oct. 31. Services were Nov. 3 at Phillips and Luckey Funeral Home with burial in the I.O.O.F. Cemetery in Rockdale.

Hope everyone had a safe Halloween on Saturday. From all reports "Trunk and Treat" held at the high school was a big success. We enjoy seeing all the costumes on the young and older trick-ortreaters.

Thank you to the ladies that donated shoe boxes to our Operation Christmas Child at Friendship Baptist Church. I really do appreciate it.
