Neighbor of the Month: Susan Rogers
Union Square had one great Monday night of business meeting and fellowship despite the rain. I did not get stuck this time. I stepped in a puddle of water because I was not looking where I was going, but no excuse.
We have very good lights. Thanks again to Johnny Schmidt and our committee. We are grateful for our community of the Square. Everyone works so faithfully together, even our distant neighbors Terry and Shirley Ogle and their grandson, Shawn, who has become a fine young man.
We cannot say enough about our former sheriff Terry Wilson who won the door prize last month, but we overlooked it. Sorry it was a good mistake (smile).
The meeting was full, with standing room only. We had a great guest speaker, Mr. Brian Walker, the overseer and manager of Mr. Robert Shaw’s farm and business of the community of Union Square. He was very informative and had much concern of the neighbors’ well being. What a blessing!
We need more concerned people in this world today. We can have greater peace, which is really needed now with all of these wars going on abroad and in our lives.
Thanks to Mr. Raymond and Mrs. Sarah Shaw who laid a great foundation under their son Robert to find a great builder, Mr. Brian Walker, who made us more aware of our great surrounding in Union Square, which was very helpful.
It was a positive impact on the entire community. We thank Mr. Walker and President Steve Baker and his lovely wife, Jean, for inviting Mr. Walker; he is one of us, too.
He works right under our feet taking care of the Shaws’ business, County roads 40, 18, etc.
Sheriff Howell gave the sheriff’s report and made everyone laugh about an experience he and his wife, Mrs. Tasha, had on Hatchet Creek concerning a mile marker.
Faithful Judge Richard Dean reminded us about tags, appointments and voting on May 24.
Mr. Travis Milhan and family graced the meeting. Travis is running for commissioner of District 4 for Coosa County. He gave us all the good things about himself and offered help for everyone in Coosa County, ambulance services, etc.
Union Square secretary Robin Schmidt outdid her report. Great work, Robin!
Mrs. Pat Windsor won the door prize, and the neighbor of the month was treasurer Susan Rogers, which she truly deserved.
Union Square loves Judge Jerry Fielding and thinks he is one of the greatest distant neighbors.
Sunday was a great day at Rockford Church of God. Pastor Hill was on top of God’s business like never before. As the young ones would say, “Man, he was on it.” May God bless him always as he continues to obey God.
Let’s keep Mrs. Emogene and Mrs. Mable Austin, Pastor Ivor Smith, and Butch Hardman in prayer.
I want to wish two of my great-great-great-nieces and two of my great-great-great-nephews big happy birthdays: Jalyese Fleetion on March 12, Malia Fleetion on March 17, Kaz Wohlgemuth on March 18, and Jia Fleetion on March 20. Also a great-nephew Damond Hill on March 1.
The word “great” makes me feel old. However, I love all of you from the bottom of my heart. Your great-grandmother Anita Patterson loves y’all double time. Damond Hill, you know your mom and dad, Stanley and Agatha Hill, love you to the limit.
“If you can’t put your heart in it, put on your heels and walk away.”
