Holiday event ahead


The annual “Home Sweet Home for the Holidays” program, presented by the Wood County TEEA Club, is set for Thursday, Nov. 14 at 10 a.m. at the First Christian Church in Mineola.

The program will feature demonstrations of holiday gift, decoration and project ideas. A soup lunch will be served that includes cornbread, drink and choice of dessert.

Each attendee will receive a booklet with all the instructions for each of the project demonstrations and holiday recipes. Admission for the program is $7 for adults and $1 for children. No pre-registration is needed, just pay at the door. Those attending will also be able to purchase raffle tickets on a variety of theme baskets that will be given away that day, so bring spending money.

The Wood County TEEA Club will also be selling delicious homemade pies for the Thanksgiving season.
