The Eternal Word
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.
There was a man sent from God whose name was John. This man came for a witness, to bear witness of that Light, that all through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. That was the true Light which gives light to every man coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those that believe in His name: Who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
John 1: 1-14 (New King James Version)

A group of volunteers is doing something special for those who may be alone or cannot provide for themselves on Christmas this year. The 3rd Annual Eudora Christmas Meal is put on by a group of residents from all around Eudora who will be preparing a traditional Christmas meal at the Eudora Baptist Church.
The meal will start at 2:00 PM on Christmas Day and is provided free of charge. Movies for the family will be shown after the meal. Anyone is welcome to attend this gathering.
If you or someone you know needs a ride, would like to donate food for the meal or you wish to volunteer to help out, please contact Rose Polok at 785-304-2169.
Many of us are running here there and everywhere to do a variety of things to prepare for the upcoming holidays. It could be cards to write, cookies to bake, or dashing around to find that perfect gift for someone special. While crunch time is on to make sure that everything is perfect for Santa’s arrival on Saturday morning, take a minute to remember the true meaning of Christmas.

Yes, we know Halloween has not even passed yet, but soon after Halloween, the holidays will be upon us before we know it.
The Eudora Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring an annual Holiday Extravaganza. This party will be on Saturday December 4 at the Eudora Community Center. This Eudora High School Choir will be performing and Santa Claus will also be on hand. Children will be able to get their picture taken with Santa Claus. Carriage rides and possibly a sleigh will be on site too for picture opportunities.
An auction of trees, donated and decorated by local businesses will also take place. These trees will be placed around local Eudora establishments prior to the auction, with the highest bidder taking home a tree at the Holiday Extravaganza. If your business is interested in donating and decorating a tree, contact Amanda Herrmann at 785-691-6314. There still is time left.
All proceeds from the Holiday Extravaganza will benefit Community Living Opportunities (CLO) based in Lawrence, KS. CLO helps adults and children with severe developmental disabilities achieve personally satisfying and fulfilling lifestyles. CLO operates Midnight Farm which is located just south of Eudora.
The Eudora Chamber of Commerce is also working with the City of Eudora this year to adorn our city for the holidays. More details to come later about what promises to be something very special and make our city proud!
