Sugar Creek Fall Festival this Saturday
Good morning on this chilly morning. I don't believe there'll be many more warm days.
Old-Fashioned Day on Sunday was a good day following the special singing by Against the Downpour and message by Butch. Again this week I was not in attendance but going by what James and others said, it was a good morning service leading up to lunch in the fellowship hall.
We want to send our deepest sympathy to the loving family of Eurtiss Hamilton. Her service was held on Monday with a full church. After the burial in Sugar Creek Cemetery, lunch was served to the family by our ladies.
Please remember this following Saturday, the 13th, will be our Fall Festival. There will be so much for your children to do and with live music and so much other entertainment. Begins at 6 until 8:30 p.m.
We are all excited to be hosting Glory Bound on the 20th. This is our last quarterly singing of the year. This group is from the Canton and surrounding areas; all are heavily involved in their own churches on Sunday and, what I hear, a good quartet all with Christian backgrounds. This also begins at 6 p.m.
Alice and Jack Waddell has had Alice's brother, Ray, visiting from Jacksonville, N.C. for a few days. He is the grandfather of Nathan, and Sandy Waddell tells me that she is doing well after her knee surgery last week. We all pray this will FIX her problem.
Lorri and Chris Stacy enjoyed spending time with their niece, Jennifer Stacy. Jennifer is in the Marine Corps and has recently returned from Jordan. Chelsea Stacy also enjoyed her birthday while home this weekend.
I was away this weekend and I'm sorry I missed our good friends, Mary and Jim McKinney. They did get to visit with James. Hopefully I'll see them in the near future.
The Elbert County Fair has recently been going, as have other fairs, including our own Morgan County Fair.
The Clarke Kesler Gang entertained there to an enthusiastic crowd recently including Clarke, Freddie, Doyle, Sandie, Jennifer, the Chandlers, Tommy Gurley Singers, Jerry Chitwood, Tracy Maxwell and Deddie Seagraves. Clarke tells me they had a wonderful time.
For awhile Clarke's group will be singing at the water tower in Nicholson on Thursday nights at 7 p.m.
This week he will have The Bridgemans as special guests. On the 18th, Changed 4 will be there.
I was in the Charlotte area with Gayle and Susanne this weekend for a great bridal shower for Roxana Bollinger, who will be marrying my grandson, Jesse Curtis Arwood III, in January. It was a huge success with two grandmothers she will inherit in attendance. Marks's mother, Lucia Luciani, was in town visiting Jill and Mark along with Mark's sister, Arlene. It was a joy for me to meet Arlene and spend some time with Lucia.
Amy Adams and Pam Woodruff from Newnan spent the day with us last Tuesday. Amy was the granddaughter of our neighbors when we lived in Decatur, what, 28 years ago. Seems only yesterday we moved to Morgan County.
Happy birthday to Jackie Bell on the 12th, Brenda Bryans on the 15th, Wanitta Guinn on the 17th.
Sunday was Homecoming at Swords Methodist. Bill, I'm sorry I missed your visit. I hear they enjoyed my friend, Horace Reeves, in concert.
Remember the deadline for the Christmas shoeboxes is Oct. 28th.
Also, Wednesday night supper at 6:30 p.m. before prayer meeting.
Always remember to pray for our sick. We still have so many on our prayer list.
So until next week, may the Lord bless you real good.
