Judging was held and winners announced in the City of Milano’s annual Christmas decorations contests. Gary and Glenda Westbrook took first place honors, followed by Mary Honeycutt in second place, Maria Gallegos in third place and Nellie Ryan in fourth place. Congratulations to ever yone. Winners were announced Monday night at the civic center.

Milano Methodist Church will hold Christmas worship services at 10 a.m. Dec. 25.

Milano ISD students and staff are out for the Christmas holidays. Classes will resume Monday, Jan. 9. Report cards for the third six weeks grading period will be distributed the week the students come back from break.

Milano Elementar y PATCH Club is still collecting “Box Tops for Education” as part of their fund-raising activities this year. You can find them on several food items and baked goods during the holidays. Just cut them out and send them to school with your child or get them to me and I will get them to the PATCH Club. It’s free money for our school. Lots of holiday baking items have the box tops, so be on the look out and get them to the school.

I enjoyed seeing the Milano Elementary students and teachers at their Christmas parties this week. The older students get just as excited as the younger ones. I was told there was a fat guy in a red and white suit wondering around the halls of the school.

We extend our sympathy to the Jake and Dot Barfield. Graveside services were held for both of them on Dec. 15 in Chriesman.
