Enjoyable Easter in Baldwin

Baldwin News

BALDWIN — Hello from Baldwin. How is everyone’s week going?

I hope everyone is having a great one.

I hope all of you had a blessed Easter. I attended Easter sunrise service at my church, Bethel Christian Church.

We had breakfast after sunrise service and later Sunday school and worship service.  The rest of the day I was at home by myself.

We had a wonderful time at the community Easter egg hunt on Saturday at the home of Ellen Harvey. There were around 50 people there to hide and hunt eggs. I don’t know who had the most fun – the children or the adults.

The weather was beautiful and the eggs were plentiful.  Among the three age groups, 900 eggs were hidden.

Everyone enjoyed prizes, candy and refreshments. No one went home empty-handed. Thanks to the Baldwin Ruritan Club for sponsoring the Easter egg hunt.

Happy birthday wishes go out next week to Opal Sanders, Monday; Johnathan Lamb, Ernie Taylor and Linda Murphy, Thursday; and Linda Portwood, Friday.

I hope all of you have very happy birthdays and many more happy ones to come.

On Saturday, April 6, Baldwin Ruritan Club will sponsor a community roadside cleanup and we need the community’s assistance.

We want to help keep our community beautiful by cleaning it up. The club has placed fliers and garbage bags in most everyone’s mailbox in the community and asks if you could pick up on your own property and place the bag on the side of the road. It will be picked up on Saturday. There will be a county truck to put it in.

However, no household garbage, no paint and no tires may be placed in the truck. Please do not bring old tires, we can not take them.

If you can help other than on your own property, we will meet at the home of Ellen Harvey at 9 a.m. on Saturday. Hope to see you there.

In last week’s article, I had the rabies clinic listed for April 20, but we have changed the date to the next weekend. So, re-mark your calendar for Saturday, April 27.

Baldwin Ruritan Club will be sponsoring the rabies clinic along with Town and County Veterinary Clinic. The clinic will be at the shop across from the home of Ellen Harvey at 315 Whitlock Road.

Veterinarian Gary Short will be giving the vaccinations from noon to 1 p.m. The vaccination will cost $5 each.  Please bring your pet in a pet carrier or on a leash.

A friend of mine called the other day and asked me to tell you about a bake sale that is going to be in front of the Richmond Walmart on Saturday, April 6, from noon until dark.

The yard sale is sponsored by Women’s Care Center- Baptist Health and all proceeds go to the March of Dimes.

This is a wonderful group of ladies, so stop by and see if you can find something you really need. Now, mark your calendar, April 6, and don’t forget.

Well, I guess that’s all for now. Let me know if you hear any news. Be sure to call 623-4579 or e-mail pljones61@netzero.com.

    This week marks the 44th anniversary of Earth Day, and what could be more important to our survival than clean air, clean water and clean food?

    I love this time of the year because eggs really do go down in price during the Easter season. I have some new recipes on how to fix eggs besides the coloring part.

    Who knew the Easter bunny could fly?

    Skeptics can come to the Easter Eggstravaganza in Richmond’s Irvine-McDowell Park on Saturday to see for themselves. However, the bunny still doesn’t fly in bad weather. But on Monday, temperatures in the 60s with partly cloudy skies were predicted for Saturday.
