PRYOR — The Keenagers, Pryor First Baptist Church’s Senior Adult group, met  Dec. 18, for their regular meeting. Vice President Mary Ann Strawhun called the group to order and Chaplain Nelson Devers asked the blessing. Forty-five people shared a potluck meal.

Following the meal, the group enjoyed music from Adair’s Dan Willcutt, accompanied by FBC’s Beverly Fitch. They did several standard Christmas songs like “Frosty,” “Rudolph,” “Silver Bells,” “Silent Night,” as well as a more recent ‘classic,’ “Mary, Did You Know?”

After the program, there was a brief business meeting.
