One last picture from Christmas in Magnolia Village. Today we celebrated together with a meal in Allen Hall. Fred was presented with an afghan to keep him warm as he moves a bit further north and we hope when he wraps himself up in it, he will remember all of his friends in Magnolia Village.
Dave and Mary's Nativity Scene along with a Merry Christmas from all of us in Magnolia Village to our present and past residents and our wishes to all of you for a Happy, Healthy New Year. If you are soon to be on the road, travel safely and we look forward to seeing you.

Tonight was finger food with a short program afterward up in Allen Hall. Below are those who helped out and below this post is another about helping. Make sure you scroll down and see what happens when one of our residents has trouble and others jump in to help. That is the true spirit of Christmas.
12 volunteers getting ready to sing The Twelve Days of Christmas.
These two are part of Larry's family visiting for Christmas.
Those who participated in the song were Dave Greening, Darlene Jansen, Mary Bruun,
Elaine Misfeldt, Susan Van Howling, Donna Bruun, Larry's granddaughter and great granddaughter,
Kenton Salmon, Larry Josie, Cathy Toms, and Pat Kent
Don Harper introduced Fred Rabe who will be leaving the park at the end of the month and invited the ladies up to dance with Fred because Fred does love to dance.

This is what it looks like when Magnolia family helps out Magnolia family. Myron and Susan came to visit us in Trophy Gardens and when it came time for them to go their truck would not start and after much investigation, it was discovered the truck needed a new starter. O'Reilly's being a quarter mile away the part was purchased but a jack was needed to get the job completed. We took them back to Magnolia and today the Magnolia Cavalry came to the rescue in the form of the Bruun brothers, Wayne and Dave and Leroy Misfeldt. Myron has his truck back with its new starter installed. This little mishap could have been much worse as it had not been many days ago when they went to Mexico.

Today at four o'clock this afternoon is the Christmas Parade. Please gather with your golf carts, bicycles, or whatever, at the pool hall to line up. After the parade, for those of you who siged up there will be sub sandwiches up in Allen Hall and after that the winners of the Christmas Lighting Contest will be announced.
