Wow, it went from spring to summer in a hurry this past week with more summertime temperatures than spring. We really need rain in our area for all the gardens and flowers.
Graduation is this week for most schools. While I don’t have any graduating from Central this year, I congratulate all and wish them the best for their future.
Don’t forget that Richville Volunteer Fire Department is selling tickets for their Memorial Day Boston butt sale. They are $35 and will be ready to pick up on Saturday, May 28, from 7 to 9 a.m. They do an excellent job, well worth the cost.
So, if you want one or two, see a member to purchase a ticket as there are usually no extras. You can also contact them on Facebook to preorder.
Sardis had a great homecoming last week. Providence Baptist homecoming is June 12. Churches in the area are planning for Vacation Bible School to be held in June and July. More information later on VBS dates and time.
I want to thank Nita Lavender for her dedication to helping keep the Rock Jail open in May through October on Sunday afternoons. She and Mrs. Jo Scarbrough were very committed. However, after Mrs. Jo became unable to assist, Mrs. Nita continued alone until now.
Due to her health, she will no longer be able to open; so, as of this week, the Rock Jail will only be open by appointment. If there is someone who can commit to this project, please contact me.
The Historical Society is considering adding names to the Veteran’s Memorial in Rockford. If you have a relative that served in the military and would be interested in having their name placed on the Veteran’s Memorial, please send me an email or text to my contact information listed at the end of this column. Please no phone calls! Or you can mail your information to the Coosa County Historical Society; P.O. Box 5; Rockford, AL 35136.
One of my Bible readings this week was Psalms 78. Verses 3 and 4 read, “…Things we have heard and known and that our fathers have passed down to us. We must not hide them from their children, but must tell a future generation the praises of the Lord, His might, and the wonderful works He has performed.”
These verses remind us that we need to teach the next generation about God and His love for us. While churches have Sunday school, as well as Vacation Bible School, as parents and grandparents we shouldn’t depend on the church to teach our young. It’s our responsibility. That’s not to say that the church shouldn’t teach, but it takes all to educate our youth on God’s Word.
Continue to keep those who have lost loved ones recently in your prayers. There are several in our community that are not feeling well, and others have family that are having health issues. Please pray for their healing in God’s will. God knows their names and needs.
Until next week, take care and be joyful!
Organizations in the area, as well as churches, I need your events! If your family has some news or an event to share, please contact me. I would prefer text to 334-414-7147 or emails to firstname.lastname@example.org, but phone calls will be fine, too. If you don’t get me when you call, be sure to leave a message.
