Thanksgiving activities are on tap across Barbour County

Hello from Barbour County! Thanksgiving season is upon us. A time for many to reflect, spend time with family and enjoy what we have been blessed with.

May we try to remember to have a thanksgiving time in our hearts all year long.

Rifle season begins on Monday.

Be extra careful in the woods this year, and I hope you get the big buck that you have been hunting.

There will be a Hunter’s Breakfast on Monday morning, Nov. 19 at the Mt. Liberty community building.

Stop in as early as 4:30 am for a platter of biscuits, gravy, scrambled eggs, and home fries to warm your belly before heading to the woods.

They will also have pepperoni rolls and candy to fill your pockets to take to the woods with you when you go.

There will be no school in Barbour County next week, Nov. 19 – 23, in celebration of deer season and Thanksgiving.

Today, November 17, there will be a Christmas Bazaar at the Cross Roads UM Church from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Also, Jerusalem UM Church will be having their Harvest and Christmas Bazaar on the same day from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Come out to both of these events and get a head start on your Christmas crafts and get some yummy food while you are there.

The last day for Philippi city league basketball sign ups will be today, Nov. 17 from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.

This will be held in the basement of the old City Building in Philippi. The registration cost is $35.

There will be a Primitive Bingo at Philip Barbour Commons on Nov. 18 beginning at 2 p.m.
