All is calm: Staying sane during the holidays

I can hardly believe the holiday season is here. Can you? I think I’m with most folks when I say that while I love the decorations, the festivities and seeing loved ones, it’s also a stressful, busy time. Here are six ways to stay sane during this bustling season:

Masonic center to host free Christmas dinner

WENATCHEE — The Wenatchee Masonic Center will host its free Robert Dickson Memorial Christmas Dinner from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the center, 811 N. Chelan Ave.

Gather the kids for some twiggy fun

Sometimes, at this time of year, I (along with many kids I know) get a little stir crazy. Nature is settling in for the winter, and gray days can become a little monotonous.

After the holidays, Divorce Day sometimes looms

The Christmas season isn’t always the happiest time of the year for couples, according to a recent survey by the law firm Irwin Mitchell Solicitors, which found that divorce filings jump by nearly one-third following the holidays.

Surgeon general E-cigarette report sparks controversy

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The U.S. surgeon general in a report released on Thursday called for action to reduce the use of e-cigarettes among young people, noting they have overtaken cigarettes to become the most commonly used tobacco products among this group.

Book club to meet Dec. 15

WENATCHEE — The First United Methodist Church Book Club will meet at 1 p.m. Dec. 15 in the Beige House on the church campus, 941 Washington St.

Open house features live music, book signing

WENATCHEE — Encouraging Words will have its annual open house featuring music by Christ Center from 2 to 5 p.m. Dec. 17 at the store, 529 S. Wenatchee Ave.

Christmas service planned for Dec. 18

EAST WENATCHEE — The East Wenatchee Community of Christ will hold a candlelight Christmas service and brunch at 9:45 a.m. Dec. 18 at the church, 690 N. Baker Ave.

Fundraiser planned to benefit local families

WENATCHEE — Aut-to Mocha and WestSide High School will hold a Pulido/Delp family benefit day from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday at the school, 1510 Ninth St.

Decades later, birth moms begin to heal

MINNEAPOLIS — Louise Gardner is thankful to her father for his compassion. Molly Hursh is thankful that her son, at 50, “is so open and loving.” Karen Gillespie is thankful that she can “put a light on for other people.”

Gifting 101: Score big with these do’s and don’ts

The average person spent upward of $800 on holiday gifts last year, according to the National Retail Federation. And if you shell out that much cash, you want the recipients of your gifts to be happy.
