PAINT LICK —
It’s a warm Tuesday morning here with a slight chance of rain all this week.
It seems each time I write, I’m either praying for a rain or looking for a dry spell. I'll take whatever He sends our way and praise Him for all.
We have lots of happenings around Paint Lick this week.
First is the Community Farmer’s Market on Old Wallacetown Road, the home of Deborah Messenger’s Certified Roadside Market Place.
The market offers fresh breads, and tomato pesto is on the list, maybe some fresh green beans and other vegetables. Visit the market and find a surprise each time.
Deborah is asking for volunteers for her Field to Fork Festival on July 20. This festival is the biggest event in the Paint Lick area for garden veggies and all kinds of marketing classes.
If you haven’t taken notice of everything offered at the Field To Fork Festival, then make a date to visit.
You can call Deborah if you’re interested in being a volunteer for about three hours. We need to keep things like this festival happening in out area, and it will start a spark elsewhere.
Call Deborah at 925-9936.
This Saturday at The Paint Lick Church of God, Pastor Patrick Roberts invites all the youth of Paint Lick from churches and elsewhere to come and join in the fun and fellowship of their Youth Crusade.
Hannah Walls will be doing a presentation on “Backyard Ministries.” The children will be learning as well as having fun. It begins at 6 p.m. Saturday evening.
The Fifth Sunday Hymn Sing will take place 6 p.m. June 30 at the new Bethel Christian Church. Everyone is invited to join in the worship and singing of praises to His name. It will begin at 6 pm. If you need directions, you can call me and please leave a message.
The Old Paths Church of God is having its 17th annual camp meeting, July 2-4 with morning services at 10:30 a.m. and evening services at 7:15 p.m. All denominations are welcome, and Brother Walter and wife Myrtle welcome you all into the Barn. They will have evangelists from Alabama, and you can call on them at 925-3011 or 661-1654. Enjoy the holiday with folks at the annual Barn Meeting where “Holiness is Standard” with action, attitude and appetite.
Debbie and Tony Dale on Short Road still have garden plants and fresh vegetables for sale. Call on them at 925-3003.
Don Webber is our local “woodcrafter and furniture maker.” He is making some beautiful Adirondack chairs that you can see at his home and shop right here in Paint Lick. Don is always working outside with his craft, so drop by for a visit and some knowledge of his work.
My brother has a large above ground swimming pool or sale. It’s 24 feet across and 52 inches deep. Call Bobby or Francine at 986-2601 if you’re in the mood for a good swim.
May God Bless.
