Editor’s Note: In order that Lora and I, and all our wonderful volunteer contributors might enjoy some time off to be with our families and friends during the holidays the Lyons Recorder will continue our tradition of using the last week of the Old Year, and the first week of the New Year to bring our readers the Year in Review.
