Holiday feel starts to set in

Pauls Valley, Oklahoma — This past weekend’s winter weather seemed to have the holiday feel in the air.

There looks to be good reasons for that besides just the cooler temperatures outside.

A couple of holiday dinners are coming to Pauls Valley — one this week for Thanksgiving and another geared for the Christmas season.

Now a tradition in Pauls Valley is a free community Thanksgiving dinner hosted by Cornerstone Community Church.

This year’s dinner is from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, Nov. 28 at Punkin’s Restaurant in PV.

Beaty Baptist Church will host its annual free community-wide Christmas dinner from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 14 in the Family Life Center.

The church is 2 miles west of the Walmart DC on Airline Road.

With the traditional food basket drive by the Pauls Valley Samaritans food pantry canceled for Thanksgiving, the group is already gearing up for the Christmas drive.

The schedule for the sign-ups to receive a Samaritan Christmas basket is:

• Monday, Dec. 2, 10 a.m. to noon and 1 to 3 p.m.

• Tuesday, Dec. 3, 10 a.m. to noon and 1 to 3 p.m.

• Wednesday, Dec. 4, 10 a.m. to noon and 1 to 3 p.m.

• Thursday, Dec. 5, 10 a.m. to noon, 1 to 3 p.m. and 5 to 7 p.m.

• Friday, Dec. 6, 1 to 5 p.m.

All the sign-ups will be at the offices of the Pauls Valley Chamber of Commerce, 112 E. Paul.

Those applying for a holiday basket are asked to bring a copy of a utility bill from their PV residence.

Delta Public Transit in PV, 215 W. Paul, is accepting donations of non-perishable food items in the annual “Stuff the Bus” drive starting Dec. 1.

The drive is scheduled to continue daily through Dec. 23.

All donations are for needy residents in Garvin County.

• Lindsay Historical Society will host a “Christmas at the Mansion” event from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 1 at the Murray Lindsay Mansion in Erin Springs south of Lindsay. Admission is free.
