One holiday is behind us. However, there is no rest for this busy, bustling city. On the 11th, Springville Antique Mall is hosting Toyland Christmas. Enjoy Live from Angela and the Foxcars with Guests and a visit with Santa from 3-5 p.m.
In the spirit of giving, The Saint Clair County Farmers Confederation and the Ladies’ Leadership Committee is holding an open house at Springville Antique Mall from 10 a.m.-1p.m. on Nov 22 in an effort to collect food for those in need during this holiday season. They ask that everyone who attends bring a covered dish and a canned good. The booths will be packed with goodies. But there is still room for more vendors. Contact Emily at 205-594-5518. Or email www.emilythesilverfox.com.
Also in the spirit of giving, Sleep on Heavenly Peace is in an immediate need for bedding. The sleeping situation for the children is dire. Contact links are on Ashville's Facebook page.
Don't forget the Jug and Hoof Fall Gathering this weekend November 7th and 8th. Horse rides and hay rides, a petting zoo, a bouncy house and more for the kids will be available. Delicious smoke house barbeque for everyone and vendors selling everything from woodwork to handmade everything. For more information, call Brittney at 205-594-9135.
St. Clair County Schools will reopen November the 12th with the exception of St. Clair County High School. Ashville Schools ask that parents and students be patient. Quarantines have left them severely understaffed. They also ask that during the interim the students practice safe social practices so they will be habitually safe when they return to school.
But the virus has not stopped the celebrations. And it has not stopped the Bulldogs. The Ashville High School football team took a big bite out of Weaver High for another win. Nothing will keep the Bulldogs or the city of Ashville on the porch.
