Fall Festival Week is here and the activities are many. I hope you take advantage of all that is being offered. Tuesday was Senior Citizen Day at the Civic Center and they had many activities there for everyone to enjoy. The stew contest is on Saturday. We hope to be able to help out at the Meal-A-Day site. We have never helped and are very excited about this opportunity. If anyone from Brashear is participating in the contest, please let me know and I will make sure to check out your stew. Also, please stop by the Meal-A-Day site to say hello.
We want to express our condolences to Mary Jo Rogers and her family on the death of her brother, who passed this week.
Last week, I made an error in my reporting. Mrs. Sammie Wright Carnes had called inquiring about Lorene Stone and I misunderstood. I have now put her on the right track. Again, I sincerely apologize.
I heard from Gary Odom, who the man responsible for Rockdale Cemetery. If you have any question about this ceremony, please get in contact with Gary.
If someone could contact me with news on the Divide Baptist Church, I will be happy to put their news and information in the Brashear News.
