The 10th annual Anderson, Cook, Harris Christmas Project was held Dec. 19 when a group of friends visited the residents at the Mansfield Nursing Home for fellowship and to deliver gifts, then caravan to Granny Brooks’ house for a children's party. The friends identify families, get Christmas lists from them, shop, wrap presents, then deliver presents to the families.

The group sings Christmas songs, opens presents with the kids and closes with prayer. This type of Christmas Project was started by R.L. Anderson and a few students while they were in high school.
