Cora Applebaum here for Orchard Hill Highlights. In spite of her recent disappointment (see previous post if you haven't heard. But in Orchard Hill, news spreads fast so if you haven't heard you must be living under a rock!) Grace Randall is hosting her annual Christmas Party at the Grace Place this Saturday. Hot cocoa, cider and cookies for everyone! A few groups have signed up to sing Christmas carols, including The Orchard Hill Community Church Choir, a high school group calling themselves "Lambs to the Slaughter" (what are the young people thinking these days?) The Orchard Hill Ladies Choir, The High School Chorus class, and the Johnny Apple Seeds Barbour Shoppe Quartet.
It sounds like a lot of fun, but the big question in my mind is 'Will Riley O'Neil be attending this year?' It seems Grace is a bit miffed at him since he punched out Steve, her faithless former fiance, in The Grace Place. You have to admit, it was kind of nervy for Steve to show up there after leaving her at the alter a couple of weeks ago. Still we are commanded to "turn the other cheek."
Will you look at the time! I should be wrapping presents with Christmas coming up so soon! Maybe I'll see you at the Grace Place this Saturday.
