How is everyone’s week going? I hope that everyone is having a great one.
Well, it sure has warmed up this week. Heat and humidity = HOT!
I hope you people that like hot weather are happy, because I don’t like it at all. But since it has warmed up, the mowing machines are buzzing again, along with rakes and hay rollers. Make hay while the sunshines.
This weekend is Labor Day, so if you are traveling, boating or whatever you are doing, I hope that you have a safe weekend.
My sisters, Nelda Smith and Myra Isbell and Ellen Harvey, and I went to the Salem Christian Church Ladies Circle meeting last Wednesday night. It was hosted by Betty Collins at the home of Johny and Betty Collins on Poosey Ridge.
We all enjoyed a wonderful devotional by Tammy Collins. Betty had prepared snacks for everyone, but I would call it a meal, everyone enjoyed the meal and had a wonderful time of fellowship with our sisters in Christ.
Seventeen ladies were in attendance that night. Johny Collins, Danny Reynolds and Joe Reynolds were there and enjoyed the food.
Thank you Betty and Johny for opening up your home to all of us.
The Baldwin 4-H Club will hold its first meeting of the 2013-14 school year on Thursday night, Sept. 5. They will meet in the fellowship hall of Bethel Christian Church at 6:30 pm. Any child interested is invited to come. We hope to see you there!
Happy birthday wished go out next week to Tiffany Jones, Sunday; Marion Lane, Tuesday; Teresa Masters, Wednesday. A dear lady that I worked with at Gibson Greeting a long time ago, Irene Evans, will be celebrating her 86th birthday Thursday. Also, happy birthday to Summer Dupuy, Friday; and Angie Curtis, Saturday. I hope that you all have very happy birthdays and many more happy ones to come.
Happy anniversary wishes go out next week to Raymond and Judy Hagar, Sunday; Raymond and Judy will be celebrating their 42nd anniversary. I hope that you have a wonderful day and many more happy years together. May God bless you Judy for putting up with Raymond. Ha ha.
If you don’t have a home church that you attend and you are looking for a church, I would like to invite you to attend Bethel Christian Church here in the Baldwin community. Sunday School starts at 10 a.m. and morning worship starts at 11 a.m. Michael Damron, minister of the church, along with the congregation would love to have you worship with them.
The Madison County Farmers market will be back on EKU Campus starting today, 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. Be sure and drop by and see us there. We will set up in front of the Keen Johnson Building on University Drive.
Don’t forget that the Madison County Farmers Market is open on Tuesdays and Saturdays in the Lowe’s Parking Lot, 8 a.m. Until noon. Corn, beans, tomatoes, sour dough and salt rising breads, sweet breads, jams, jellies, honey and lots more produce is still available at the market. Beef and pork are also available. We also have homemade soaps and lotions as well as birdhouses, bird feeders, bowls, cutting boards and other handcrafted items by Steve Murphy.
