Thanks to Donna Harris and Sarah Lincoln who help with the float and to Miss Thorndale and her court for participating.

Winning in the Christmas Raff le were Karen Gilchrist, Christmas Quilt donated by Lanette Tucker and quilt stand donated by Country Roads Emporium and Antiques; Twana Benner, Christmas Dinner Basket; and Joyce Jaeger, $50 gift card. Other winners were noted in recent articles in the Champion.

Year end business was finalized. All members are encouraged to come join the TACC at our business meetings. Your input is important as the TACC plans for 2010.
