BALDWIN — Hello from Baldwin:

How is everyone’s week going? I hope everyone is having a great one.

Well, looks like we had to get our coats out and turn the heat on, cause baby, it’s cold outside.

Happy birthday wishes go out next week to Conner Hampton, Sunday; Phillip Sanders and Amanda Moore, Monday; Betty Wells, Wednesday; Frank Masters and Sonica Wade, Thursday; Gary White, Friday; Angela Hamilton and Kaytlyn Davidson, Saturday.

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

Happy anniversary wishes go out next week to Ron and Lois Marionneaux, Wednesday; Dr. and Mrs. Marionneaux will be celebrating their 59th anniversary. Glenn and Angie Curtis celebrate their anniversary Thursday. I hope both of these couples have very happy anniversaries and many more to come.

On Saturday, Nov. 2, the annual Christmas Gathering arts and craft vendor fair will take place at the Kirksville Community Center, 664 Kirksville Road (KY 595), form 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. There will be 50 plus vendors, chili lunch, door prizes and Santa will be arriving at noon. They also will be accepting donations of non-perishable canned goods for God’s Outreach Food Bank in Richmond. My sister, Myra Isbell, will be set up with our crafts along with Joyce Middleton and many others.

Also on Saturday, Nov. 2, the Richmond First Presbyterian Church at 330 W. Main St., will have its Arts and Crafts for Missions  at their Christian life center form 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. They will be serving a $5 soup and sandwich lunch from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The sale will feature a silent auction, gently used toys, books, CDs, puzzles, jewelry, purses, scarves, baked goods, garden plants and crafts. My sister, Nelda Smith, and I will be setting up our crafts at this show and we hope to see you there.

Billy Tudor will be set up at the Madison County Farmers Market in Lowe’s Parking Lot on Saturday. There may be other vendors, but I do know that Billy will be there.

Although Isbell-Smith Farm Fresh Produce is no longer at the market, we still have local honey, jams and jellies, breads and fried apple pies available by special order. Just give me a call.

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.

Well, it’s short and sweet this week, but that’s all for now. Let me know if you hear any news. Be sure to give me a call at 623-4579 or e-mail me at
