Members of Bethel Pentecostal Tabernacle in Clinton invite everyone to attend the Christmas Candlelight Service on Sunday, Dec. 20 at 6:30 p.m. at Bethel Pentecostal Church. They welcome you to come and enjoy Christmas carols and fellowship.

Citizen of the Year

The Spirit of Clinton Committee is asking for nominations for the 2015 Citizen of the Year. To nominate someone please supply your nomination’s name, address and phone number, and provide your name, address and phone number as well. Then on a separate sheet please explain your reasons for your nomination.

Season’s Greetings

This will be my final column of 2015 (unless something special should occur) as I am taking some time off to spend with family. I want to thank my faithful readers for their continued support.

I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a safe, happy holiday. I hope the New Year brings health and happiness to all.
