POLSON — “Yesterday, Dec. 7, 1941, a date that will live in infamy …”  Franklin D. Roosevelt’s address to Congress.

Tell the story of the attack on Pearl Harbor by an imperialistic country. Never forget the lessons of history.

Hanukkah begins Dec. 7 and ends Dec. 15. Many world religions have celebrations this time of year. The shortest day of the year, Dec. 21, is also the beginning of the end of long nights, and thus a celebration using Astronomy as the source of inspiration. This is the season of celebrations using candles as a symbol; a light shining in the gloomy darkness; a universal symbol of joy, hope and peace.

This is also the season of giving. The Senior Citizens Center is thankful for continued gifts in support of the Nutrition program, and the gift of volunteers who share their time and talents toward serving the seniors of the Polson area and beyond.
