COMMUNITY THANKSGIVING SERVICE/GINGERBREAD HOUSE AUCTION

Well over a hundred people gathered at the Champion Fellowship Church on Lubbock Street last (Sunday) night, for the annual Community Thanksgiving Service.

The service has been a Brenham and Washington County tradition for over 60 years as a way to bring people of faith together for  a continuous spirit of Thanksgiving during the week of the holiday.

The service always raises money for some immediate worthy cause and this year was no exception.

The offering collected money for Bread Partners, Mission Brenham and Habitat for Humanity.  The Rev. Randy Wells reminded the gathering that Habitat has already built 11 homes in Washington County and they are continuing their work.

Artistic people in our community are continuing their efforts to raise money for the Washington County Habitat For Humanity.  Leslie Harrell says numerous people have gotten their pre-fab gingerbread houses to construct for the Gingerbread House Auction at the Unity Theater two weeks from now.

The Houses need to be fully decorated by December 3rd and returned to Brenham Abstract.
