ANOTHER WEEK GONE BY
Christmas is here. Most all of Lyons and now water in Apple Valley, got our Christmas Gift, and are back in our homes for the Holidays.

THANKSGIVING IS HERE; a time for us all to say thank you.

It is truly overwhelming how helpful and caring folks are!

Thanks to the ministries for the Thanksgiving Dinner at Rogers Hall. It was delicious, well attended, filled with the Thanksgiving spirit. Yes, Lyons is grateful for the wonderful dinner and those that brought it to us! Thanks for the use of Rogers Hall, and to Pastor Mickey, Rev. John Ross and co-horts for making the arrangements.

Our favorite unit included dinosaurs and a field trip to the Natural History Museum in Denver. That was a long time ago.
