The cemetery’s memorial service Saturday, May 7, went well. Lots of people there to visit with that I only get to see once a year. Bro. Ronald Davis did a great job on his sermon and Nick Lamb was an outstanding master of ceremonies. I also heard many compliments on Mrs. Irby’s singing and on Mrs. Davis’ piano playing skills. Lisa Oler was song leader, as she has been in the past, and she did as good of a job as she always does. The offering was up a little from last year and I’m sure donations will trickle in from individuals throughout the year. During the trustees meeting after the morning service and lunch, we laid plans for next year’s service and I believe we will have another good line-up of folks to add to the program.

That same night was the FFA’s stew and auction. I wanted to go but my nephew, Brody, was having his sixth birthday party so I couldn’t miss that. I heard that the auction went well. I was able to donate a dessert to be auctioned so I dropped that by on my way to Sulphur Springs to the birthday party.

Madison Penny recently graduated from nursing school. I was proud to hear that. She is a graduate of Miller Grove Independent School District and so was her mother, Sherry Ragan Dial.

Congratulations to everyone who has been having babies lately. Mark and Angela Pitts Gress had their little one on May 11. His name is Merrik Wells Gress. He was 8 pounds, 8 ounces, and was 21 1/2 inches long. Angela is MGISD’s art and photography teacher. Macen Howle and Ashley Bryant delivered a daughter this past week. Macen is the grandson of Dean and Mary Linda Howle and graduated from Miller Grove HS while I was working there.

Happy birthday to Jesse Weaver on May 15; my Aunt, Betty Phillips, on May 16; and George Callan, Paul Garrett, Connie Briggs and Dillon Tipps on May 19.

Cole and Kimberly Burnett will celebrate 6 years of marriage on May 15. Also, happy 10th anniversary to Kevin and Michelle Tipps on May 20, and happy 33rd anniversary to Barry and Julie Smith on May 21.

Upcoming events at the school will be the academic and athletic banquet (May 19), End of School Stew (May 20), FFA banquet (May 20), baccalaureate services (May 22), Elementary Awards Assembly (May 24), Kindergarten and Junior High Graduation (May 26), and High School Graduation (May 27). Wow, I can’t believe the school year is almost over!

Another week packed full of activities in Miller Grove. Monday was my birthday and I was shocked at how many birthday wishes I received either through cards, Facebook, or messages. It was a good day even though it did rain that morning and I couldn’t get much accomplished outside.

Busy, busy, busy — those are the three main words to describe our community during this time of year. Little ones are in baseball and softball, school will be drawing to a close before we know it and there are activities almost daily during the spring in and around “The Grove.”

I guess the biggest news I have this week is the groundbreaking ceremony for the new Miller Grove Elementary addition. Of course, with all of the rain in the forecast, everyone was worried that it wouldn’t be dry enough to conduct any type of ceremony outside, but good fortune prevailed and the weather couldn’t have been better.

Not quite as much news to report this week as the last few weeks – they were chock-full of happenings in the Grove. I do know the rains we have had lately have been beneficial to gardens in the area. Looks like we are in for another round of rain next week but hopefully not the hail we received with the last storm.
