Countless ways to do something creative with a door

Just leave it to elementary teachers

Merriam-Webster describes it this way: 
• a movable piece of wood, glass, or metal that swings or slides open and shut so that people can enter or leave a room, building, vehicle, etc.
• a part of an object (such as piece of furniture or an appliance) that swings or slides open and shut
• the opening for a door : the entrance to a room or building

The Ada Icon describes it this way:
• Ada elementary students decorated school doors for the holidays. Here's a sampling of what Monty Siekerman photographed this week during a walk through the school.

What's Christmas without Santa at ReStore?

And, its annual shopping spree for youth

Story and photos by Monty Siekerman
ReStore held its annual shopping spree for children on Friday evening...and Santa was there, too.

Each year, the community center provides a time for youngsters to pick out free gifts to give to parents and siblings. There are elves there to help wrap the presents, as well. Financial support for ReStore to purchase the new items to give away comes from the Hardin County Foundation.

Santa sat near the front door to hear the wish lists of the children before they began the shopping spree.

Rememberance service

Hosted by Hanson-Neely Funeral Home

By Monty Siekerman
Hanson-Neely Funeral Home held its annual remembrance service on Saturday afternoon.

Family and friends nearly filled the funeral home to remember those lost. As they arrived, family members were given ornaments to be placed on a large tree. The ornaments were inscribed with the names of those to be remembered.

During the service, Marc and Linda Staley lighted the remembrance candle. Pastor Charles Moeller, of Lafayette Congregational Christian Church, gave the message titled “The Wonder of Immortality.” Pastor Don Klingler, of Alger First United Methodist Church, offered the prayer and read Scripture.
