The hall is a very busy place and has been the center of attraction for
the last two weeks.  Much work as well as material is being donated and
an addition is being built on the east side for a stage.  The ceiling
has been kalsomined and the side walls are ready for a coat of varnish.

Seney was exceptionally favored this Christmas when at an early hour a
large group of children accompanied by Miss Manz went from home to home singing beautiful Christmas carols.  As the children's clear voices rang out upon the air we were all made to realize that Christ had come and there was indeed "peace on earth, good will toward men."
