Youth Spread Holiday Cheer

                Last month, the Holy Family Youth Group decorated the flower park for Christmas. This month, the decorations have helped make Nazareth just a little bit brighter. Thanks to the teens who helped with the project.


Local Student Dances into a Panhandle Tradition

                Sixth grader Ainsely Schultz has been dancing ballet since first grade at the Star Ballet in Hereford, Texas. Over the last six years, she has danced a total of thirteen performances.

This year, Schultz danced in the Lone Star Ballet’s production of The Nutcracker. She completed a total of eight performances and countless hours of practice. She danced as a soldier and a balloon girl during the weekend performances.

“My favorite show that I’ve done was The Nutcracker because it was an amazing experience,” Schultz said. “I loved meeting new people and being taught by new people. It was fun to dance on the stage with a full orchestra.”
