Louisville Signs the Big Guy!
Project Code Named; Jolly Old Elf succeeds!

In a bold move, leveraging Louisville's honorable Showcase Community Award this year, local entrepreneur and tuna croissant chef Laura Osborne, pulled off a stunning coup by securing a special guest appearance by non other than..
Santa Claus!!!
..himself at her popular Soda Fountain this Saturday, December 14th from 1:00pm to 3:00pm!

Clearly this time of year it is next to impossible to get the big guy even for a short phone interview, but Laura can be pretty persuasive and clearly it paid off.

(Rumor has it that negotiations broke down briefly when Laura's friend Scott could not be found on Santa's Nice list, but it was apparently a clerical error.)

As it turns out all the Louisville kids were listed on Santa's Nice list, and so special arrangements were made to see that each and every child that attends Santa's visit on Saturday will receive a special treat from Santa!

Refreshments will be served and Laura welcomes everyone to stop in and see the new look at Blakes!

Please Provide Food and Clothes and Gifts for those in need..
This year as in years past there are several local efforts to gather good things to share with our neighbors at this special time of the year.

Home State Bank is again supporting the Louisville Jaycees Angel Tree, and for those of you who have not made this one of your families holiday traditions it really is a great way to teach kids about sharing with others. At the bank there is a tree with paper "angels" hanging on the branches, they have names of kids that could use some special kindness this year to keep their spirits bright. Each angel has a simple gift request, that you purchase and leave under the tree at the bank. Our own Jaycees angels will see to it that it is anonymously delivered.

Clothing Drive
Please take a look at that closet for items, especially nice worm and fairly new items that you can donate to folks that would REALLY appreciate it.
Please make sure that things are clean and nice. Brand new works too!
Boxes are located in the following places:
Outside the Elementary Office at Louisville School
Outside the High School Office at Louisville School
Home State Bank
Louisville City Office

What the Cat Saw...
Hi Hardware Cat Fans!

That darn mouse..
Well, it seams that those Mole-no-More folks are always trying to tempt good old Larry and Maureen into selling their mole control stuff in far away places, and there-by get rich beyond their wildest dreams. That way Larry could even afford to buy razors again. Turns out the Mole-no-More franchise just opened up across the river in a far away land they call .. Springfield..!
Now trouble is nobody knows nobody that far north and they have strange ways up there I hear. I hear they even have a Mouse for the city Website spokes-critter - Dang!
What the dot com are they thinkin' of, I mean that's a rodent!
Well, anyways they are trying to find a name for the critter, and everything is on hold till they decide on a name. Tha'ts fine, I hear it's COLD up north this time of year...

Having fun, and Waiting for Santa south of the river....

Hank the Hardware Cat
