Summer has finally got here, and it is hot. Really glad that today it is a little cooler. How did we make it back in the late 1950s and 1960s?
I am humbled by all of the comments I get about my article. If I seem ungrateful, it is because I do not know how to respond. I like writing this little article but I do need some more information from the people who make up this great community.
Last Saturday we attended the Brashear Cemetery Association Annual Meeting. For those of you who do not know, it is held the first Saturday of June. This is a long-standing tradition for several cemeteries in the surrounding area. I can remember my parents going to “Homecoming” in Wolfe City. They often talked about how everyone would come and work in the cemetery to clean it up and then have dinner on the grounds. Sound familiar to anyone? They meet in the Brashear Community Center but had a hard time finding somewhere cool. They discussed about how the plots need to begin to fill in where there are spots around not assigned. Some people agreed and some didn’t. There will be more discussion on this. New officers were nominated and voted in and then there was a good pot luck meal. I sure would like the recipe for the angel food cake with icing. It was delicious. Enjoyed eating with my friends Marie and Ron Bramlett and also got to eat with Ron’s parents, who came in for the meeting.
I visited with Louise Stewart last week, and she gave me a lot of upcoming dates, but I have lost my notes. So I will get back with Louise this week and get back up to date. I do know that Elton and Louise will be celebrating a big anniversary this month. More information will be coming soon.
Happy birthday to Kendall Woodall, June 11; Jackie Holly, June 12; Tommy McCarty, June 13; and Jimmy Hale, June 14. May all of you have a great special day.
This week Sulphur Springs was under siege. The youths of Sulphur Springs, and several other cities were on a mission. “Sulphur Springs Youth Work Camp” was in full swing. I would like to thank all of those young people, adults, sponsors, and everyone else involved for showing that you care. They were 21 houses with 15 workers per house that were repaired and painted. Thank you again. I know that a lot of work went to the planning, preparing of meals, transportation, and countless other details and would like to give a big THANK YOU for all of your efforts.
I would like to thank Brashear Baptist for helping out with food for the groups working on the Chrysalis House.
I know that everyone is interested in our garden, so here is our “Weekly Garden Report.” Green beans are just about done. I put up 21 quarts and three pints. We also had a good friend give us some plums. I made 15 pints of plum jelly. Thanks to Chris Gibbons. We desperately need some rain if we are to make much more. Even our squash has slowed down. Hoping the rain is on the way. We did not get any of that on Tuesday evening.
This weekend begins our annual Dairy Festival. Be sure and be an active part of what is going on in Sulphur Springs. The Milk Run, Parade and Ice Cream Freeze-Off will kick off the Dairy Festival on Saturday.
