Keeping Up with Medina Matters

by Bev Barr

Christmas celebration, all day Sunday, Dec. 10
Kick off a day of community-wide Christmas festivities at the 3rd Annual Hot Cakes & Holly Breakfast from 7 to 11 am, at the Masonic Lodge. The cost is $10 a plate and benefits the MISD Junior Class.
At 4 pm in the library, the Medina Community Choir will sing one song from their current repertoire (a teaser for their upcoming concerts on Dec. 12 and 16), which will be followed by a short choral concert presented by local elementary school children. Santa will definitely be dropping in, so bring your cameras. Rounding out the library events will be the annual baking contest. Afterwards and across the street, the festivities will continue at an open house at the Bandera County Veterinary Clinic hosted by several local merchants. At dark, gather around the Christmas tree next to The Apple Store for a tree lighting ceremony, to see the new nativity and to sing Christmas carols.
