The seventh annual Cornersville Lions Club's Christmas Belle Pageant will be Saturday, Dec. 1, at 6 p.m. in the auditorium at Cornersvill High School.

Cornersvill Elementary School students will compete for this title. This year's pageant will include Miss Christmas Belle for fifth and sixth grades; Miss Jingle Belle for third and fourth grades; and Little Miss Snowflake for kindergarten, first and second grades.

Entry forms were given to each student during school, but any student interested in participating may call 931-993-3385 to receive a form.

Sponsor fee is $25 and the deadline for entries is Monday, Nov. 26.

Cornersville Elementary School students recently collected items for SSG Wendell McClure, a local soldier currently serving in Iraq.

The students chose McClure because not only is he serving our country, he is also an employee of the Marshall County school system.

The students boxed items requested by those serving overseas, such as hand sanitizer, gum, ink pens and peanut butter -- all things we take for granted but mean a lot to a soldier far from home.

The children learned about the soldiers' needs and began filling boxes with supplies to be shipped to reach them in time for the holidays.

The Chapel Hill United Methodist Women's Day Circle will host "Dessert & Thistle" Sunday, Dec. 2, at 7p.m.

Thistle Farms is a natural bath and body product line made by women of Magdalene House, a two-year residential community in Nashville for women with a history of prostitution and drug addiction.

Come and have some tasty desserts, start your Christmas shopping in a meaningful way, and hear the amazing stories of restoration from the women of Magdalene House.

There will be a community Blood Drive at Church Street church of Christ on Monday, Nov. 26, from noon to 6 p.m.
