McCormick Garden Club
Hosts Second Christmas Tour

of Historic Dorn House
and Sells Fresh Wreaths

by MARY ANNE
LINSENMAYER

ANTICIPATION! IT’S
KEEPING us waiting to see
what the McCormick Garden
Club decorating team has
in store for us as they begin
prepping and decorating the
Dorn House for a second
Christmas Tour this year. As you
see from the pictures here, what
a feat the club accomplished
with last year’s tour that received
a first place award for decoration
of a historic building at the state
level and a national award for
the same----a first time ever for
this local club.

Mark your calendar for
December the 6, 7, 13, or 14 to
visit this two story brick Colonial
Revival style home built in 1917
that is on the National Historical
Register and rarely open to the
public and see how the team
has splendidly decorated for this
year’s tour! Hours for the tour
are from 12:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
each of the four days.

And for those who love the
fragrance of fresh evergreens
the McCormick Garden Club
will be selling fresh evergreen
wreaths at the Dorn House
December the 7 and 8 during
the hours of the tour (no pre-
orders). For $20 you will have a
choice of a Frasier Fir wreath or
a mixed evergreen wreath (some
local greens) that is made on
a 14 inch wire frame resulting
in a 16 inch finished wreath.
Bows will also be for sale for an
additional $5.00.

As you begin your celebration
of the holiday season and
participate in the Holiday on
Main events, the Dorn House
decked out in full holiday finery
is a “must see” providing a
unique experience to travel back
in time to Christmases past and
renew and refresh your spirit.

ELAM DRIVE Block Party

by KATHLEEN
THOMPSON
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER
21 the residents of Elam Dr.
Got together for a block party.
Held at Mike & Debby Dill's
house.
Residents enjoyed bbq
hamburgers, hot dogs and
sausages, and brought their
favorite side items for the party.
It was a beautiful day with
lower temps and we all enjoyed
the day with old and new
friends.

SUNDAYS AT FOUR 2019 TARA HALLOWEEN
JANUARY 12, 2020 will be another incredible show GOLF CART PARADE
presenting Dianne Penning and Paul Langford. A
dynamite duet who perform state-of-the-art blockbusters
which include broadway tunes like The Music Man, West
Side Story, Julie Andrews, and many other favorites. This is a
“Don’t Miss Out” concert of pure enjoyment.

SUNDAYS AT FOUR is a not-for-profit artist series organization in cooperation with McCormick Arts Council at the Keturah

(MACK). All series concerts are held at The Lutheran Church By The Lake. The series does not provide income to the church, nor

does it receive financial assistance from the church. The church donates the use of the sanctuary for the performances and the

fellowship hall for the reception following each program. Sundays at Four greatly appreciates their generosity in making their

beautiful facility with its superior acoustics available for our concert series. All performances are at the Lutheran Church By The

Lake, Route 378 and Twelve Oaks Drive, Savannah Lakes Village, McCormick, SC, at 4:00 PM. A free reception will follow each

performance-a wonderful opportunity to meet & talk with the performers. Be sure to write the performance dates in your

home calendar! We hope to see you at the season’s concerts and hope that you will recommend the series to your friends and

neighbors. Thank you for your continued support.• uSee more golf cart parade photos at

ROD & GUN CLUB

The SLV Rod & Gun Club
Ladies Go Fishing

by KEN WILES

THE SLV ROD & Gun Club Ladies Go Fishing The club
scheduled a special striper charter strictly for the ladies of the club.
To our surprise we had enough participation to charter two boats!
Eight ladies turned out for a beautiful day on Lake Thurmond.
They left from Hickory Knob boat ramp at 7:00 AM on October 3
in search of the elusive striper. The fun began shortly after leaving
dock and continued thru the “HOT” afternoon. They returned
to dock about 3:00 p.m. The eight ladies caught 54 striper, three
bass and 18 cat fish. Kathy Goodby caught 31 1/2 inch blue cat.
Helen Slatter caught a large mouth bass 20 inches long weighing
approximately 10 pounds. All the feed back I received was very
positive and they are looking forward to next year’s charter.•

Christmas Travel

by REV. KINSLER

Lutheran Church By The Lake words to this familiar song paint a serene picture of holiday travel. As almost anyone
who has traveled for Thanksgiving or Christmas can tell you, however, traveling
Highway 378 & Twelve Oaks Drive over the holidays is anything but serene, especially when it involves small children or
pregnant women.
