As I write this, it is the first day of summer. While people have been talking about record highs, the weather people say it is not unusual to have triple digit temperatures in June. The last one was a few years ago, so I guess we have forgotten.
Also, it is the primary runoff day. So, by the time this is published the results will be in and maybe all the ads will end, at least until this fall.
It’s bad enough to get campaign phone calls, but the last few days my phone has been receiving multiple campaign text messages. I admire the candidates that have campaigned without running negative ads about their opponent. One campaign has stood out for their negativity from both candidates.
Richville Volunteer Fire Department had a good turnout for their bingo last Saturday. Good to see several new faces. The next bingo will be August 20, so mark your calendar. Also, they will soon start selling tickets for their Labor Day Boston Butt sale.
Hard to believe that school will start in about six or seven weeks. Doesn’t seem that long since they got out for the summer.
It was sad to hear of the passing of Mr. Lewis Scarbrough, so soon after the passing of Mrs. Jo. My sympathy to his family.
Providence Baptist will have Vacation Bible School beginning Sunday, July 24, and finishing on Thursday, July 28, from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Any other churches in the area, let me know and I’ll include a notice of the date and time of their VBS.
The Historical Society should soon have more information about the cost of placing a name on the Veteran’s Memorial in Rockford. We will continue to accept names up to contracting to have them engraved.
I hope all the fathers and those that fill the role as a father had a good Father’s Day. It was just a regular Sunday for me, but I did reflect on my memories of past Father’s Days.
This past Sunday, Bro. George preached from John 3:16. I’m sure that most people know this verse by heart, but just in case this is what it says, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
This verse has been the most translated verse in the Bible. It is often called the “Golden Text.” In those few words, it sums up the love God has for us and what He did for us. God’s Son is all we need!
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.
