HARRISTOWN NEWS: Merry Christmas from Harristown

This is my last column before Christmas, so let me take this time to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. I hope everyone takes time to just reflect on the season.

Johnnie Harris writes the Harristown News.

Please follow guidelines to insure that you and your love ones have a safe and enjoyable holiday. Remember to keep gatherings intimate and small in order to practice social distancing. Wear a mask when with those you don’t live with. Wash your hands often. Do not serve food buffet style.

Please, if you are having any symptoms, refrain from gathering with others. We are in this fight together.
