June has arrived with hot summer temperatures. Happy birthday to all those celebrating this month.
While the primary election is over, there is still a statewide runoff. That means more political fliers and phone calls.
The Richville Volunteer Fire Department had a very good Boston butt sale. They thank everyone that helped, as well as those that bought. The next one will be Labor Day weekend.
They will have bingo on Saturday, June 18, at 6:30 p.m. with concessions. Everyone always has a good time, even if you don’t win!
This Sunday, June 12, is Providence Baptist Church’s homecoming. It begins at 10 a.m. The Fellowship quartet will present special music, and Lee Wilder will be the guest preacher. There will be a fellowship meal to follow the service.
The Historical Society is still seeking names to place on the veteran’s memorial in Rockford. So, if you or a relative served in the military and would be interested in having your name placed on the veteran’s memorial in Rockford, please send me an email or text to my contact information listed at the end of this column. This is for the entire county!
Since I didn’t get my column submitted last week for Memorial Day weekend, I still want to comment on what it means. The Bible verse I used for our church bulletin was John 15:13. It reads, “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”
To me, that is Memorial Day. When someone joins the military, that is what they are risking. Memorial Day is for all those soldiers that left home never to return. It is for all the wars and battles that took the life of a man or woman.
Every community and town can name someone that, through the wars and battles, didn’t return. Yet, we still have men and women step up to defend our country. Because of those that didn’t return and those that did, we enjoy the freedoms we have today.
Without those sacrifices, where would we be? But the One that we should thank the most, is Jesus Christ our Savior. He came, died and was resurrected so that we might have eternal life. Without Him, none of the rest matters!
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.
