Potluck dinner set for next Sunday
I send my sympathy to the family of Bob McBride. From what I could hear he was a fine man.
The Lake Oconee Baptist Chapel is having a potluck dinner next Sunday following the morning worship service. They are having a singing January 27 at 6 p.m. You all come.
Mark Lhowe is conducting the services at the Buckhead Baptist Church in the absence of the pastor while he is away for a few days. The AWANA is doing well with 55 there. The church has already made plans for the Valentine banquet. It will be February 16 at 5:30 p.m. for all of the couples in the church. A nursery will be available at the church.
The former Heather Moore and her husband came by to see George and Laura Lohr last week one day. She is the granddaughter of the late Rev. and Mrs. David and Ruth Lemons who used to pastor the Buckhead Baptist Church for many years. The Lohrs were so glad to see them.
John and Gail Wade went to meet all of her sisters and brothers-in-law on Wednesday. They had a great time!
Chuck and Miriam Foster, Barbara Tyson and Margaret Bell had lunch Sunday with George and Laura Lohr.
Get your calendars out and mark them with the Valentine banquet already set. Well I have a date set for April 6. The Old Buckhead Days is then so get set for that. There will be a 5k Road Race. It will go down Davis Lane and Baldwin Dairy Road and back walkers or runners are welcome to participate.
There will be music, bands, food and some hungry people. The t-shirts will be designed by Ammie Bell for the road race winners.
I saw an ad in the Lake Oconee News where they wanted recipes to go into a cookbook that a group of ladies are getting up for a cookbook. Then they will sell it and all the profit will go to their church. The contact lady is Sherry Smallwood, 321 Sinclair Road, Eatonton, GA 31024. Her phone number is 706-484-9722.
We send our sympathy to the White family in the sudden death of Fred Lorin White III. He was just 63 years old. He lived in California. He was the grandson of the late Fred L. White and Grace White from Buckhead.
Linda Moore Kincaid is in her last semester at the University of Colorado. While she is working full time she has pursued a degree in an executive MBA. She had to go to Denver to class for a week at the beginning of each semester. She is out there now. She will graduate in July.
I send my sympathy it Judy Rogers over the death of her brother in Tennessee.
Linda brought her mother Beatrice Smith to see her brothers and families Rassey and Edna Smith and Earl and Almedia. Smith.
We send happy birthday wishes to Jo Ann Cason on January 13 and Renee’ Lietch on January 19. Happy birthday!
There will be the monthly singing January 27 t 6 p.m. at the Lake Oconee Baptist.
We met a very wonderfully couple years ago. They were members of the Prince Avenue Baptist Church. She was my Sunday school teacher. He was in the Sunday school class where my husband went. They were very attractive and she was a retired school teacher. Sometimes they insisted that we go out to eat with them at the Holiday Inn or somewhere. But then after years I began to notice something about her. I talked to her sister-in-law about my idea. I felt that she was getting Alzheimer’s. About that time we got to where we were not able to go to church regularly. I found out that she did have Alzheimer’s. It was so sad to me. He was at one place and she was at another over there in Athens. He was at one place where he could get therapy I believe that was what I was told. Anyway we got the bulletin and we saw where he had died. He had prostate cancer probably 20 years. He had gone to the VA and had meds and I’m sure but I believe shots too. He had lived much longer than the doctors had said that he would live. From a man of such great faith he talked to many people about his Lord. He wanted people to be able to go to heaven and to be there in eternity with him. There was no doubt about where he was going when he died. Now God has called this giant of a man home to be home in eternity. But his wife did not know. She too is a giant in the faith but the dreaded disease has captured her. Someday soon she will join him there.
