This week has brought back memories of Sept. 11, 2001.
This is the day our security as living in the United States of America was jeapordized. Citizens of this country will never feel the same.
The Waco Masonic Lodge, 195 College HIll Road, will be hosting its annual Pie and “What-not” Auction next Saturday, Sept 21. A pot-luck meal will start at 6 p.m., followed by the auction.
This year, the proceeds will go to benefit the Waco Elementary School Family Resource Center and the Madison County Rescue Squad. Everyone is invited.
Note: Brilian Cain is cooking the ham and will bring one of her famous pies to be auctioned. The ladies bring the pies, and men bid on them (how dare any husband not to be the winning bidder on his wife’s pie!)
Next Saturday, Sept. 21, also willbe the day for the fall clean-up at Flatwoods Cemetery.
Anyone wishing to come out and join in “sprucing up” the cemetery (picking up trash, flowers that have been strewn about by the wind, etc.) is welcome to come on out from about 9 a.m. or so and help.
Trash bags will be provided. This would also be a good day for family members to clean out old flowers, weeds, etc., from the graves of their loved ones.
Thank you in advance for your help!
Thank you also to Waco Elementary staff and students for making grandparents feel so special on Tuesday, Sept. 10. The school lunch was excellent, thanks to the cafeteria staff headed by Kathleen Hunt and her “special server,” Superintendant Elmer Thomas.
The smiles of office personnel made grandparents feel at ease and welcomed. Thank you, interim principal Mr. Harris, Secretary Tudor, Ms. Wade and Ms. Pugh for your inviting personas.
Thank you to the custodians, Mr. Agee and others, for the shiny floors and over-all beauty of the building and grounds.
Thank you to the volunteers for their greetings, beautifully decorated tables and your “may-I-help-you” graciousness.
And, a special thank you to the students (grandchildren) for making us (grandparents) feel so special.
Grandparents' Day was a huge success! (Did I go overboard here?)
Ray Holliday, songwriter and musician, will be at Flatwoods Christian Church for a concert Sunday, Sept. 15, at 9:45 a.m. Everyone is invited.
At the end of September, Flatwoods Christian Church will begin “The Story.” This is a simple way for everyone to participate in a journey through the Bible.
For 31 Sundays, the Bible will be covered in a basic overview, with one chapter providing the basis for the Sunday morning sermon, the Sunday night Bible study and the youth worship service each week.
“The Story” is a condensed Bible that will take one from creation to Revelation in chronological order. It does not contain all of the scriptures, but will tell the story in a way that will help put the whole Bible in context.
“The Story” will begin Sunday, Sept. 29. Books will be available beginning that Sunday. A suggested donation of at least $5 is requested for each book taken.
Happy birthday wishes go out to: (belatedly, last week) Ruby Campbell, Diana Winkler, Garney Smith and Tracy Burton.
Happy birthday wishes this week to: Donnie Rydale Davidson, Sept. 14; and to Alivia Fox, Sept. 18.
Happy Anniversary to Phil and Amanda Flynn on Sept. 12.
That's it for this week. Have a great one!
A church marque read, “A little dose of Son may keep one from burning.” (Don’t you just love them?)

Can you believe such cool weather in mid July?
Refreshing. That’s the word one TV weatherman described the upcoming days when temperatures will be in the 70s with virtually no humidity and lots of sunshine. Can you believe that in the middle of July? We can live with that, can’t we? We may even get close to setting a record for morning lows later this week. This has certainly been the year for strange weather!
