Brashear News for June 10, 2009

E-mail Print PDF
Brashear Homecoming was last weekend, and I have first-hand report from Tom, who thoroughly enjoyed the whole event. We are just wondering if every homecoming is as good as Brashear. Red George, the president of the Cemetery Association, opened the meeting and the business news was handled. The food was rated excellent by Tom. Has told his Sunday School class that it was real food made by some very good cooks.

One of the board members, Elton Stewart, was unable to be there because Louise was not feeling well. We hope she is on the mend real soon, so Louise, take care, and know that prayers are going up for you.

Johnny and Lou Ann Petty provided beautiful music. Pat Higginbotham also led the group singing. Tom enjoyed the music so much he was wondering if maybe we could start a gospel singing every so often at the Community Center. Anyone else interested? Please get back to me.

Want to remind everyone about Vacation Bible School at the Brashear Baptist Church. This year’s theme is Boomerang Express. The dates are June 15th through the 17th from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., so gather up all of the little ones and come enjoy all the beautiful wall decorations. I know that Carrie Kinsworth and her work crew are working hard to make it a great time for all of you.

Happy birthday to Jennifer Caudle, June 7; Jackie Holley, June 12; Tommy McCarthy, June 13; Jeremy Smith, June 8; and Kendall Woodall, June 11.

Congratulations to Randy and Shelia Koon for being selected as the Grand Marshals of this year’s Dairy Festival Parade. The article was a good one that they had in the paper. Imagine 100 years is a long time to invest in a family business. You do not see that very much anymore. We are proud of them. We also have one of our own vying for queen, Daylan Burns, daughter of David Jr. and Natosha Burns and the granddaughter of David and Becky Burns.

This week on MSNBC they started one of their segments about how people were helping to make it in today’s economy, “A Garden.” I guess I have pushed gardens. They should come to Brashear to see all of the gardens around town. We all know that your own grown produce can help your grocery budget. They even had some statistics that over a million people were supplementing their budget with gardens.

I have already put up 19 quarts of green beans and seven pints of beet pickles, two quarts of peaches and five quarts of blackberries for the freezer. I had someone from church come up and ask what we were going to do with 95 tomato plants. I said, “Give a lot away!” She said she was going to find out where we live.

This week I have found out that getting old is hard, so I want everyone to take care of their bodies and keep mentally and physically fit.
