HANEY HAPPENINGS Tuesday, Dec. 10, 2013
On the sixth day of Christmas my true love sent to me …
Six geese a laying,

two turtle doves,
and a partridge in a pear tree.

A Green Christmas Tip: Did you know that this year the recycling depot will not accept wrapping paper? They found that the dyes and décor on the paper contaminated the recycling process. Instead use cloth bags, gift bags, tea towels or newspaper/magazine paper to wrap gifts and add your own ribbon/bows!
