Belles enjoy authentic English tea
I send my sympathy to the family of Neta Peppers. My husband says that when Neta was young that her family lived in the house that was Natalie Wheat’s up the road from here and that she went to the Buckhead School.
Happy birthday to Macie Alliston! She was four years old on January 31. Her family had a party for her last Saturday. She received many nice gifts.
Happy birthday to Ethel Norrell! I hope that your day on February 6 was a special day and that you have many more.
The Buckhead Belles enjoyed an authentic English Tea catered by the Cheerful Hearts Ministry. Lady Lilac was the hostess for the special December meeting. Members collected items for the Circle of Love.
John and Gail Wade and family are happy because Elise Coberly was named athlete of the week in the Athens Banner-Herald. She is a senior at Madison County High School. She plays basketball and in her career she has reached 1000 points. That’s quite a record! Congratulations! Elise is the Wade’s granddaughter.
The associational meeting is to be at Beacon Heights on Thursday night. The Lake Oconee Baptist Brotherhood is to be on February 12. The church will have their monthly singing February 24 and 6 p.m.
Congratulations to Jerald and Bonnie Bishop on their anniversary on February 8! Happy birthday to Garrett Stinchcomb on February 8.
The Old Time Wrestling is to be February 9 at 5 p.m. when the doors open. The event is at 6 p.m. You pay $7 as an adult and $4 as a child. One dollar goes to the Buckhead Fire Department, where the event is held. Why not make your plans to attend and fill the house? You know this is a fundraiser for the fire department that is monthly. The fire department is certainly one very necessary place because when we have a fire we call 911. These brave people uniform up and come rushing to do what they can to help. The one dollar that comes from the wrestling ticket is small, but with many dollars they add up to help buy something that may be needed. So please come help out!
The Buckhead Baptist church is to play the movie “Courageous” on February 17 at 6 p.m. You are invited. The Valentine Banquet is to be February 16 at 5:30 p.m. The prayer meeting is being held on Wednesdays at 7 p.m. at the home of John and Gail Wade.
John and Gail Wade along with Gail’s sister and her husband, the Johnstons, spent a few days in Charleston.
A wonderful lady that I had known for a great number of years went to be with the Lord today. She had cancer that she had fought courageously but God wanted her to be in eternity. She was a great Christian lady that was always ready to serve in any way possible with a smile. She had a jolly laugh. Her presence will be missed in church.
The wind that has blown some time in the last few days has blown the roof back on our well house. Some tin on our tractor shelter is also blown back. I noticed last night that it was blown. This was the kind of wind that you usually expect to experience in March. All of this however, is minor in comparison to what so many people have had. When I think of what Hurricane Sandy did, this is nothing. I talk to a friend every day in New Jersey that moved from Athens. She meets people all the time whose property is still being repaired. There are workers there that have come from everywhere to help rebuild these homes, or to clean up the damage. She works at Wal-Mart there so many people come in there and she talks with them. She has seen some sad situations. It still will take much time to get things back to where they ought to be. She is so thankful that her home and car were spared. She was in California when the storm came. She praises God for that. She was visiting her daughter.
