1.Christmas Crusade: On Saturday, December 16, Sheriff Wiley and the Ascension Parish Sheriff's Office will host the annual Christmas Crusade toy giveaway to families in need, made possible by donations from over the past couple months.

In Donaldsonville, the program will run 10-12 p.m. at the West Ascension Courthouse on Houmas Street.

2.Health - Al-Anon Meeting: On Tuesday, December 19 & 26. If you are bothered by someone's drinking, Al-Anon Groups may be able to help. We are a fellowship of men and women who share our experience, strength and hope in order to solve our common problems. Meets Every Tuesday. 6:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. Sr. Linda Conference Room. FREE! Call 225-924-0029 for more information.

3.Get Shopping: Have you even bought any gifts yet? This Christmas forget about spending a ton on your loved ones. Television has a way of telling us that if we're not buying our wife or daughter a new car, we're not doing it right. That's a lie. If you're lucky enough to have someone in mind for gift giving, don't focus on expensive gifts. Give from the heart this year. But get to it, Xmas is almost here!
