Live thankfully


Help pack grocery bags for Live Thankfully at Party with a Purpose on Sunday at McCarroll Middle School’s Multipurpose Building, 1201 W. Thompson St. The event starts at 5 p.m., and everyone is welcome to come help.

The bagged groceries will be delivered to families in need through partnering school districts next week. The charitable undertaking is run by Dr. Dan Mallory of Mallory Orthodontics. Donations of non-perishable food items are being accepted throughout the week, leading up to the packing party, at participating businesses (including the Wise County Messenger), schools or Mallory Orthodontics, 2250 South FM #800, in Decatur.



Imagine 50 singers, a children’s choir and a dazzling 30-foot tree.

All of those elements, as well as beautiful pageantry and traditional Christmas music, are part of “The Gift of Christmas,” a holiday extravaganza at the First Baptist Church of Decatur next weekend.

The show is at 6:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Free tickets can be picked up at the church office, 1200 Preskitt Road. Large groups are encouraged to call the church at 940-627-3235 to reserve seats.

Christmas night out


Finish your Christmas shopping Thursday at Christmas Night Out in downtown Bridgeport.

From 5 to 7 p.m., shoppers can sip wassail on Halsell, follow the Christmas Cookie Crawl and even get their photo taken with Santa’s sleigh.

Of course, there will also be plenty of time to shop and grab a bite to eat before going home to settle in for a long winter’s nap.
