Styles Johnson, my great-great-nephew, celebrated his birthday on March 6.
Union Square’s Neighborhood Watch meeting was truly a community meeting: more so. We learned more about what’s happening in the community and county, things that we should and need to know. I encourage all residents to attend their Neighborhood Watch meetings.
Coosa County could have more access to the things we need if we would come out and share our knowledge and put it to use. Coosa County is losing because we don’t do our part as citizens. Within months we have lost our animal shelter.
People support the bad things and take advantage of the good things for their own selfish reasons. We need to work together and we can get things done more easily and better. “Stop talking and start walking.” Come to the meetings and be informed of what you can do to help build Coosa County, and we can grow!
Deputy Logan Mitchell gave the sheriff’s report. Probate Judge Richard Dean gave us some great news and information to consider and act on, such as redistricting some districts, false claims, ambulance service, and much more. He was firm, but humble on the subjects; a very smart, kind judge. He and his wife, Mrs. Jackie Dean, are special people.
Considering March is Women’s History Month, Mrs. Jackie Dean is one to honor. First she is the strong lovely wife of Coosa County Probate Judge Dean, and she is an Air Force veteran who has served our country for 30 years, earning the title of chief master sergeant. She does so much in the county for everyone. Now, that’s enough to honor her. Union Square honors Mrs. Jackie Dean for the month of March!
Back to the meeting, we had a wonderful guest speaker Mrs. Sharon Coffman, school board District 4 of Coosa County. She spoke on the importance of volunteers and working together. She spoke on all the work that has been done to help victims of the tornadoes that swept through Coosa County. She gave us details of how to be a part of it.
She and her husband, Mr. Burt, are part of seven members of the Long Term Recovery Committee, and they have worked very hard to get the job done, including Mrs. Donna Brown. They were very informative for now and the future.
Happy birthday to Union Square’s Mrs. Pat Windsor on tomorrow, her brother Bobby Prater on March 9, and her sister-in-law Bobbie Prater on March 8.
It was an exciting time for the Windsor, Bolling, Hough, and Graham families last week. Ishmael Prater Bolling came from Petal, Mississippi, to spend the week with Pat Windsor. Pat had 10 for supper, celebrating Donald Graham’s eighty-fourth birthday on February 17 and Ishmael’s on February 21. There were 19 family members for a get together at Pat’s when Bobby and Barbara Prater came from Tullahoma, Tennessee. Pat said it was great for the four living siblings to get together and enjoy family fun and birthdays.
Prayer list: Lady Mandy Hill; her mother, Mrs. Sherry; the Massengale family; and the Bass family.
Happy birthday to my great-great-nephew, Styles Johnson on March 6 and to all March babies.
Honoring Women’s History Month.
