Rockdale Lions collecting food for local pantry

I t’s beginn ing to look a lot li ke Chr ist mas, even though Halloween and the Rockdale Fai r were ju st over.

I don’t have nea rly as much trouble with that as my husband and the male members of my fami ly have.

They seems to think that stor es sta rt decorating for Christmas in September just to make them mad.

But next is Than ksgiv ing and I think it ’s my favorite.

Who doesn’t love a hol iday based solely on food?
