The news will start out with a shout out of congratulations to the youth going to Puerto Rico with Brashear Baptist. They made $400 approximately with the concession stand at the Rummage Sale Saturday. Money was also made for the cancer victims of our community, $1,400. Great job of showing support for our neighbors.
I would like everyone to pray for the Bramlett family and the Higgins family. They both have suffered losses this past week. Mr. Bramlett was a native of Brashear and buried in Brashear Cemetery. Modene Huggins lived in Brashear for a while and was buried in the Shirley Cemetery. They will be missed.
I had a call from Pat Higginbotham Tuesday afternoon. Pat wanted me to let everyone know she is on the speaking circuit again. Pat and her late husband, Joe, were active with Terrific Tuesdays that are held at First United Methodist Church in Sulphur Springs. Pat told me it helped her keep her sanity when Joe was diagnosed with dementia and later Alzheimer's. She wants to let everyone know what a blessing it can be for the care giver as well as the care receiver. She has brochures if you are interested in talking to her. Thanks Pat for a great job in getting the word out about this wonderful program.
Pat is such an upbeat person she also gave me two new quotes she wanted to share: “Celebrate today — you are younger than you will ever be,” and the other one is “Put a rainbow in someone's cloud.” She is so positive. She was on KSST on Wednesday morning to promote Terrific Tuesday. Hope you got to hear her speak.
Grasshoppers are thriving at County Road 1119. Our garden corn is down to just stalks. The grasshoppers have eaten all of the broccoli, cabbage and working on our black-eyed peas. Let's hope they are just passing through. We want to have some cantaloupes to eat. Rain has helped a lot.
Hay is in so we can have all the rain we need now. We would sure like to get another cutting.
I have noticed a lot of the residents of Brashear having beautiful flowers. I wanted to mention this because I know it takes a lot of work. Thank you for the flowers.
