We had beautiful weather this past weekend; however, most of the past week has been cool. April is almost over. Once May arrives, teachers start counting the days down until the end of school.
The Coosa County Historical Society had a great meeting on Sunday. We made some plans for the coming year that I’ll share as they are finalized.
I’m so happy to announce that because of people volunteering their time, the Old Rock Jail will be open on Sunday afternoons from May to October except for the following holidays: Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, July 2 (July 4 weekend), and September 3 (Labor Day weekend).
We still have a few Sundays where there is only one volunteer. So, if you are a member or join (dues are $15) and want to volunteer, please text or email me. Thanks to Bridget Kelley for all her work getting the schedule organized.
We are taking applications for the veteran’s memorial until the end of August. There will be more information and an application form on the Historical Society’s Facebook page.
The Richville Volunteer Fire Department will be having bingo on Saturday, May 6, at 6:30 p.m. Come out for a night of fun and fellowship. We always have a good time, and it’s for a good cause.
It’s important that we support our fire department. They are volunteers that donate their time to help our community. They are also selling tickets for their Boston Butt sale. The pickup will be on Saturday, May 27. They are always delicious, so make plans to get your ticket because they just cook what they sell.
Providence Baptist Church had a good service Sunday. If you don’t have a church, you’re welcome to attend Sunday school, which starts at 10, with worship service at 11.
My scripture reading this week is Philippians 4:4, which reads, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
BE POSITIVE! Dr. Troglen’s sermon was about being either a pessimist or an optimist. As Christians, we should be optimists because if we really believe on Jesus, we have every reason to be!
This verse is not saying don’t be concerned about things, but to have a positive attitude. We can either look at the glass as half empty or half full; which do you do?
There are several in our community that are not feeling well, so please pray for their healing in God’s will, as well. 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.
