Gunlock Christmas

The Gunlock Christmas Program will be held on December 24th at the Town Hall at 5:00pm. Judy Leavitt said it will be an “excellent program”.

GSSD in November

By Sara Laub
   Over the Thanksgiving weekend the water operator, Judy Leavitt, checked the well pump before starting work on the plugged line and found that the pump had seized. A new upgraded pump was put in to fit Gunlock’s needs better. Since the December 2010 flood, the old well pump ran for a few months and it was not designed for that kind of use. The new pump is designed to handle longer use and also has better ability turn on and off as needed without the same kind of wear. The board is expecting to have the EPA violation order dropped in January 2012. The order has been in force for one year and it should be dropped since the GSSD has met the requirements.
   The residual test in January is the last to be turned in on time as part of completing the order. The meeting dates and time for the GSSD will stay the same for 2012, which is the first Thursday of each month (except for July and August) at 7:00pm.
   It was said that the Ironman contribution given to the Town Hall will be used to fix items, like the roof, on the Town Hall.

The Christmas

Soft, relieved-of-suffering face.
Smooth and shining so gentle.
Looking with reflective eyes,
Weary in body, but spirit still full.
A miracle, a mother, Mary.

Joseph, concerned, sweat-beaded brow,
With love-mellowed wondering eyes,
And attentive manner,
Watching his Mary, a mother.

A miracle, a miracle birth.
Baby born with crumpled, red face,
Moist hair.
New life noises from his fresh, air-filled lungs.

Jesus, this babe, Prince of Peace.
And angels shout, hosannahs at His coming to be Savior.
Healing hands touch blinded eyes,
Darkened spirits, to cleanse sin-weary souls.

Son of the Most High God, diety,
Powerful in virtue,
Able to overcome death,
Command all things.

Master, a loving, forgiving, atoning Master.

Christ pure and clean to give us life.
A miracle, a mother,
This Lord and King,

Baby Jesus.

The Secret of Christmas

It's not the glow you feel when snow appears,
It's not the Christmas card you've sent for years,
Not the joyful sound when sleigh bells ring,
Or the merry songs children sing.
The little things you do on Christmas Day
Will not bring back the friend you've turned away.
So may I suggest the secret of Christmas
Is not the things you do at Christmas time,
But the little things you do all year through.
