Families often have their own unique traditions when it comes to the holidays.
It’s a Wonderful Life was based on a Christmas card short story by Philip Van Doren Stern, which was originally sent out to around 200 of Stern’s friends and family in December of 1943.

Trail Life Troop TX-1516 will meet at Meadowbrook Baptist Church the 2nd and 4th Monday every month. Trail Life is a Bible centered program for boys and their dads. It teaches them Biblical Manhood and deepens the relationship between father and son. Trail Life goes on regular camp outs and other great events, as well as teaching other outdoor skills. The age groups are 5 years old to 17 years old. Adults are equipped to lead a program in a structured outdoor environment where boys are engaged in real-world challenge and experience camping, hiking, and fishing; they develop skills in riflery, archery and canoeing; and learn character and leadership in a practical hands-on manner that is naturally engaging.
