The Christmas Parade in Farmville on Sunday was delightful to watch and especially if you are there with a child. There is nothing like seeing a parade through the eyes of a child. Richard and Margaret Stockton enjoyed the Christmas Parade with their grandson, Sean, on Sunday.

These chilly “cold” days are great for staying inside and watching all the different birds come to the feeders to feed. Enjoying the feed this morning were Cardinals, Blue Jays, Blackcap Chickadees, and several I have not seen close enough to identify, and the squirrels were up and down the tree branches.

I would like to thank the Farmville Herald for the lovely luncheon provided for the correspondents and their guests on Monday. Thank you so very much.
