Temps have been up and down!!! We had some really pretty days over the Thanksgiving Break, but we also had a frigid windy Sunday. Whew—that wind was ferocious! Hopefully we will have several days this week that are back to normal temperatures. The wheat looks good and farmers are still harvesting the cotton. Please continue to pray that God will bless us all with some really good amounts of moisture throughout the late fall and winter! Things are getting a little dry so a nice RAIN would be good! DOLLAR GENERAL continues to be the place to be! The community is certainly enjoying being able to shop, shop, shop right here in our own little town!!! It has sure been a long time coming! For Hammon it has been a REALLY long time! Be sure and drive by the Hammon Park this week. Wednesday the community gathered for a Christmas Lighting Ceremony in the park. Everyone also enjoyed the hot chocolate and carriage rides. The community is really proud of our Christmas light display downtown! Work is also moving along on the new Hammon Center Citizens Center in downtown Hammon. Work on the inside continues. It is going to be so nice! Excitement is high with the new additions to our community! Please remember those who are sick or shut-in in our community or those who have community ties. These people need our prayers and maybe drop them a card or stop by to visit for a few minutes.
