Stanwood Friends Church celebrated with a Christmas dinner and program Sunday afternoon. After the program, church members packed gift bags and went caroling and gifting to folks who were unable to attend. The early program and farewell dinner were for Rev. Reggie Phillips and Rev. Ashley Phillips, who are moving to Virginia.

National Honor Society students are: Calvin Booth, Ally Bristol, Kelsey Campbell, Alex Courtney, Corinne Hoffhines, Jeri Holwick, Misti Jenkins, Brad Kabus, Hunter Koch, Tyler Ottensmeier, Caroline Overbaugh, Kaley Patterson, Katy Perry, Jonathan Powell, Jake Schmalstieg, Andrea Sullivan, Terri Stewart, Gavin Swearngin, Logan Terry, Morgan Wise, and Derek Wright.
