A celebration for the Davises

Paint Lick News

PAINT LICK — It’s another cloudy Tuesday morning with snow again overnight in this third week of March. But folks, spring is on the way!

The buttercups are standing proud in the snow. Against all the wintry blizzard winds, they bloom right on.

Paint Lick Creek is full with the cold, muddy waters of Sunday morning when I came awake to the thunder and lightning of yet another supposedly spring day.

They are calling this strange weather ... the “sprinter” and ,from the looks of things this week, it certainly is a mixture of both.

This past Friday at the Paint Lick Community Arts Center, a grand time was enjoyed by all the friends and families of Hal and Yvonne Davis as some cried and some shed happy tears for the well being of our two wonderful friends.

Music, food and fellowship was added after Don Weber and Judge John Wilson presented Hal and Yvonne with the “key to the city” and an incredible proclamation stating March 22 as their day.

Thank you John Wilson and Don Weber for being a friend of many and a great appreciation to Emily Bray and Elliot for all they have done for the center in keeping it alive.

Thank you Carla Seflak for taking time to hear our “whimpering and joys” as we talked of our experience  through your camera. This world is full of great technology

A very moving reading was given by the Rev. Tim Pack of Wallaceton Baptist Church as he did a magnificent portrayal of Paul and his letter from the book of Philippians. The event was well attended by all who supported the center.

Hal and Yvonne Davis are now in the packing process of heading home to Indiana. We will miss them so very much.

The beautifully renovated building that housed the community arts center is for sale and we are all praying for a miracle.  

This is Holy week of Lent with celebrations at most churches. Maundy Thursday will be conducted at Paint Lick Christian Church on March 28 (today), Good Friday is scheduled at Paint Lick United Methodist at 7 p.m. and Easter egg hunts are everywhere.

Everyone is welcome, young and old alike, at Paint Lick Christian Church at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, then sunrise service at Paint Lick Christian with a potluck breakfast to follow before our Sunday morning Easter services.

A hint for all you early gardeners ... you can plant just about anything in any one spot of your yard and watch it grow. It’s a perfect lesson for small children as they learn to grow what they eat. With all this rain and snow, it’s a great time to plant greens and lettuces, radishes, carrots, beets and onions. Then sit back and wait for the warmer days ahead as we put out the tomatoes, beans, corn and cucumbers. I can hardly wait!

Happy anniversary wishes to Johnny and Eva Alexander on Easter Sunday. You two are blessed in the Lord. May God bless.
