Massac County Hospital will have a pop-up vaccine clinic in Brookport on Thursday, Nov. 18. It will be held in the Harry Statham Gymnasium on Crockett Street from 1-4 pm. Call 618-638-1344 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday for an appointment. The follow-up date is Dec. 9 for the second injection. This is for those not vaccinated yet. Boosters are not being scheduled at this time.

A chili supper and bazaar will also be held in the gym, but on Saturday, Nov. 20, from 2-7 p.m. The Parks & Recreation Committee will sponsor the event to raise money for Christmas activities. Tables at $10 may be rented for vendors having items to sell. Contact Bronda Jones or Debbie Workman through Brookport City Hall for further information.

Help the Brookport Library decorate its Christmas tree. For each donation, an ornament with the donor’s name on it will be placed on the tree. The library operates on donations from the community and this will help with expenses. Thank you to all that have donated before. It is much appreciated.

Birthday greetings to the following people: on Nov. 11, Ron Coram and Sharon Jacobs will be celebrating; Ronnie Stallings and Eddie Thompson will be a year older on Nov. 13, Linn Waynick Nov. 14 and Beth Kelly and Ronnie Henson on Nov. 17. Best of wishes for everyone and may the coming year bring health and prosperity.

We have had some very nice autumn days with turning leaves and bright sunshine. My husband has been mulching the leaves as they accumulate. They crumble very nicely in the dry weather. After the freezes, the morning glory have quit blooming. They were the last of my flowers. Their withered heads look so sad, but they shall drop their seeds and rise again next year.

So will all the weed seeds, too. I wasn’t too preemptive pulling them before they went to seed, so I guess I’ll be seeing them next year, too, unless they serve as winter feed for the birds. Maybe I’ll be doing the birds a favor by leaving the seeds. I’ll do better next year.
