Golden Agers

The monthly meeting of the Golden Agers of North Park Baptist Church in Denison was held Dec. 18. President Leroy Ingram opened the gathering and Beverly Ingram brought a short devotional on the name "Emanuel."

During a business session, Barbara Holder, secretary, read minutes from the last meeting and Beverly Ingram gave the treasurer’s report. The sunshine chairman reported on cards sent to those who were ill and Leroy Ingram appointed a nominating committee to select officers for the coming year.

Guest speaker, Margaret McCord, presented "The Christmas Journey," a story on the nativity, focusing on forgotten realities of the long trip.

The meeting closed with a prayer and blessing for the meal that followed.
