Burnsville is Busy This Holiday Season

Butch and I finished up our shopping over the weekend. On Sat. after the parade, we did some shopping locally at the Flatwoods Outlet Mall. We had a great time looking around and purchased a few Christmas gifts too. On Sun. after church, we headed towards Clarksburg and finished up our Christmas shopping. Isn't it fun to purchase gifts that will make others happy?

Get well wishes to Betty Brown of Heaters. She recently had some surgery and seems to be doing well.

Sympathy is extended to the families of Kim Crislip of Bridgeport and Monta Jean Strader of Orlando.
