By Shirley Dubbs - New Madison News



Tiara Brinley has been announced as the New Madison Public Library’s Volunteer of the Year. Congratulations Tiara!

Work we don’t always see is important to the success of many organizations and especially to those serving the public. The purpose of the Phyllis Cole Dubbs Volunteer Award is aimed at showing appreciation for the many jobs behind the scenes at the library.

Tiara helps with shelf reading, preparing materials for the Friends’ book sale corner in the library, sorting new titles and packing bundles for New Madison Public Library events, like summer reading.

Brenda Miller, director, and her staff appreciate Tiara’s dedication to keeping organization.

The recognition presentation is planned during the library’s annual open house for the holidays. This year it is scheduled for Dec. 11 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Tiara will be the honored guest at 5 p.m.

She is the daughter of Darci and Tim Brinley. She is a graduate of Tri-Village.

Stop at the library on Tuesday, Dec. 11 and enjoy the holidays with a cookie and punch.

You can enjoy a fish dinner at the American Legion on Saturday, Dec. l. “All you can eat” is welcoming to those with big appetites. Pollock, slaw, green beans and apple sauce will be served as well as coffee and bread and butter. The serving line opens at 5 p.m.

Breakfast is every weekday from 7 to 10 a.m. The public is invited to enjoy a warm breakfast on these cold mornings.

Supporting the Legion activities helps to fund the community service that is appreciated in the Tri-Village area. The auxiliary continues the tradition of filling cheer baskets for the holiday.

If you know a person celebrating a 90th (and plus) birthday or someone needing a note of cheer, contact Pat Hoover at 997-4724.

Football is winding down for postseason games. And I watched another Ohio State Buckeye win in overtime Saturday. At the edge of defeat the Bucks pull off a win.

Time to turn to basketball this holiday weekend. Traditionally this is the debut of our Patriot ladies in red, white and blue. Exciting games are scheduled on Friday, Nov. 23 and Saturday, Nov. 24. Teams involved in this year’s Bill Burkett Tournament are Greenon, Chaminade Julienne, Versailles and Tri-Village. The Patriots play Greenon on the opening day with the junior varsity at 3 p.m. and the varsity at 6 p.m.

Mark your calendars for a community Christmas Contata on Sunday, Dec. 16. Vocalists from churches within the Tri-Village community will be presenting special music.

Those calendars fill up fast this time of year so save time for a cup of coffee and some stress free time.

Students will be out of Tri-Village early on Dec. 21 (1:15 p.m.) and they will return to classrooms Jan. 7.

Enjoy the holiday and traditional food treats. It is time to be thankful for the goodness in our life and to set aside the negative. Happy Thanksgiving.
