For the Havre Daily News
There are only four days left before Christmas. S. Claus must feel that I have been a bad girl this past year. I only asked for one thing, a reopened bowling alley. Wish I could give you some good news before the special day, but I can't.
Merry Christmas anyway!
Thanks so much to Bonita Griggs for hearing my cry. She had an empty state entry blank and was good enough to run copies off for me.
