Message to all OTHG members: Please keep those to-go containers with lids coming in. Use them, wash them, and bring them back to be used again. And help spread the word that we are collecting them so others will possibly contribute. It saves us money and cuts down on trash. Thanks so much. OTHG Board

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENTS: CONCERNING KITCHEN HELP. While we appreciate offers to help between 11 & 11:30. What we really need are people who can commit to assist with the meal. This requires committing to a specific task at a specific time. It does not mean that you volunteer for every week – though that would be appreciated also. Duties could be as simple as opening a bag of salad and putting it into a bowl or making tea and or coffee. If you are comfortable with following a receipt and preparing something like meatloaf or King Ranch Chicken you will be greatly appreciated. Merle or Janet have a signup book with upcoming menu items.
As always help with the clean up is So much Appreciated!!
Concerning lunch: please take one One portion only. Everyone gets the opportunity to eat BEFORE seconds are called. I will announce when. After everyone has had an opportunity for seconds then I’ll announce for take home.
There are a few OTHG T shirts left unsold. See Jannett Thornburg if you are interested. No special orders. We have only what we have.

JOKE: A man walks into his living room and sees his wife sitting with her arms crossed and jaw locked. He looks at her and tries to think of what might had caused this foul look. Not remembering anything he had done, he said, “If something I said can be Interpeted In two ways and one of those ways have upset you… then I meant the other onel”
PRAYER: Bless us, O God. Bless our food and our drink. Since you redeemed us so dearly and delivered us from evil, as you gave us a share in this food so may you give us a share in eternal life. AMEN..

JOKE: A minister decided to do something a little different one Sunday morning. He said ‘Today, in church, I am going to say a single word and you are going to help me preach. Whatever single word I say, I want you to sing whatever hymn that comes to your mind’ The pastor shouted out ‘CROSS’. Immediately the congregation started singing in unison, ‘THE OLD RUGGED CROSS’ The pastor hollered out ‘GRACE’, The congregation began to sing ‘AMAZING GRACE’, how sweet the sound.’ The pastor said ‘POWER’, The congregation sang ‘THERE IS POWER IN THE BLOOD’. The pastor said ‘SEX’ The congregation fell into total silence. Everyone was in shock. They all nervously began to look around at each other afraid to say anything. Then all of a sudden, way from in the back of the church, A little old 87 year old grandmother stood up and began to sing‘PRECIOUS MEMORIES’.
PRAYER: Heavenly Father we come before You with Praise and Thanksgiving for this opportunity to spend time with family and friends. We want NOT to forget the reason we celebrate Christmas because “Jesus is the reason for the season”!! We ask that You bless this food we received from thy bounty in Jesus name. AMEN.
