The Cumberland County Landfill Alert Committee, a non-profit organization, will be hosting their regular monthly meeting on Sunday, Dec. 18 at 3 p.m. at 71 Community Center Drive in Cumberland.

It will be a joint meeting with AMMD, the Pine Grove Project and Cumberland County Landfill Alert Committee. The continued purpose of these meetings is to inform Cumberland County residents and surrounding counties about the serious impact this Mega Landfill will have on you and your neighbors, giving you the most current update.

Changing to talk about the Buckingham County Christian Fellowship Association, the non-profit turns 35 on Jan. 1. The board of directors will meet on Monday, Jan. 9 at noon. That’ll take place in the meeting room of Buckingham County Public Library, to discuss and make plans for the 2023 physical year. 

I’m sending out birthday wishes this week to Ralph Dunnavant of Dillwyn, who celebrates on Friday, Dec. 23 and Steve Bickford, who will celebrate next Tuesday, Dec. 27.

Finally, a very special happy birthday wish is sent out this week to Jesus, as we celebrate his birthday during Christmas.

From our house to yours we wish each of you a very Merry Christmas and a happy safe and prosperous 2023 in the Lord.
